    First off, what is telling you to get 2.95? Please post the pertinent (error) message(s) (if any).

    Secondly, what distro are you running?

    Hi
    The current version of linux is SuSE 8.2
    The compiler with the version is 3.3

    Due to the libraries were compiled under 2.95 (those .so files), i will have problems compiling new codes that uses the library files in 3.3
    Please help.

    Thanks
    Chris

    You could recompile all your libraries with gcc3.3. Or just use the SuSE package manage (I'm not familiar with it) to uninstall gcc then manually make it install 2.95. I personally would suggest recompiling your libraries so as to use gcc3.3.
