logical got a reaction from bluehash in gcc division problem
This was probably a dumb question.
I tried compiling from source but i don't think the gcc source has the same code as the one most people are using.
I got it to work for the blinky example but the fpu was not working in the qs-rgb example.
Eventually I downloaded from here https://launchpad.net/gcc-arm-embedded/+milestone/4.6-2012-q2-update
and everything is working
