    old version with gcc 3.4.x

    Hi all,

    I need a version of linux (an distrb) with compiler gcc 3.4. This is for academic purposes. Does anyone know of a site where i can download such an iso??

    Or alternativley i have a version of Opensuse (10.3) but i am having trouble reverting to the old compiler?

    Any help in relation to this will be much appreciated.

    Kind Regards,

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    On current systems, gcc 3.x and 2.x are "legacy" or "compatibility" packages. For example, on RHEL/CentOS 5 systems, the packages for gcc 3.4 are:


    You can install these along with the regular gcc packages. In fact, on my CentOS system I have gcc 3.4.6, 4.1.2, 4.4.0, and 4.5.1 ubstalled. Mostly I use 4.5.1 these days, but sometimes I back off to 4.4 or 4.1 if there are problems with the build, and some older packages require 3.4 so I use that when needed.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
