Different distributions of Linux are bundled with different versions of gcc, libraries, etc. If you’ve got versions that differ from the ones the developers are testing with, it’s possible to encounter new errors they haven’t seen yet. It’s useful to report a bug if you can’t find one about your specific issue, otherwise people will keep thinking “someone else is bound to take care of this,” and it doesn’t get taken care of.

I didn't do it as I supposed everybody would already found (and solved) them.
