Typically the thing that matters most is the version of gcc.  Other things
like the kernel version don't affect ACE directly.

You can browse the scoreboard:
to see some of the version combinations that are currently supported.

As a general rule, if you've got a cutting-edge version of gcc, you probably
need a recent release of ACE.  Alternatively, if your gcc is really old
(pre-3.0), others on the list might have better info on what's currently

If you post the distro and version that you're considering, you could probably
get a more accurate answer to your question.
