Hi,

When I installed redhat 8.0 on machine A, g++ version 3.2 was automatically installed.
However, it seems to have problem compiling some C++ programs. These programs compile OK on another machine B running redhat 7.2 with g++ 2.96

I was wondering : what can I do now? Can I just download g++ 2.96, untar it somewhere in machine A, edit my personal path... so that whenever in my user account, when g++ is called, version 2.96 will be invoked?

Are there any complications?

THanks!
Yee Seng.

All you have to do is install the compat rpms....these are for RH9
compat-libstdc++-7.3-2.96.118
compat-libstdc++-devel-7.3-2.96.118
compat-gcc-c++-7.3-2.96.118
compat-gcc-7.3-2.96.118

There are similar version for RH8...

if you have and up2date account at redhat, you can install the latest updated version like this:

up2date compat-libstdc++ compat-libstdc++-devel compat-gcc-c++ compat-gcc

Or install rpm -Uvh from the RH 8.0 disks in the RPMS directory.

Now you can run a 2.96 gcc as: gcc296 and a 2.96 g++ as: g++296 You can do this export before you compile as well. ... or issue make commands like this:

CC=gcc296 make
