Two gcc Versions On The Same Installation?
When I recently installed Etch via a net-install it placed both the gcc 3.3.5 and gcc 4.0.1 on my system. Neither can be removed by itself as there are too many deps, and so they remain together. Why is/would/should there be a need and purpose for both of them? They both show up in synaptic as being installed.
However this is the command output:
# gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 4.0.1 (Debian 4.0.1-2)
