having 2 gcc versions installed in the same distribution
I am using Mandriva 2005 LE. And I have made some updates through cooker sources... I have updated to KDE 3.4.1 and some programs for everyday use. And now I have installed on my system: gcc (GCC) 4.0.1 (4.0.1-0.2mdk for Mandriva Linux release 2006.0). But I have realised that some aplications cannot be corretly compiled with this version of gcc but with: gcc (GCC) 3.4.3 (Mandrakelinux 10.2 3.4.3-7mdk).
Now I know that it is possible to have installed both gcc versions. And that is what I need. But I don`t know how to do it --> that I wont crash my distribution.
So I am asking you good people out there if you could help me, a newbiee, how to install the older version of gcc. And then how to compile aplications with this older version? :oops:
have a nice day,
