any recomendations to downgrade GCC 2.96 to 2.95?

Hi you folks!

i going into the nightmare of downgrading the gcc 2.96 which ships the red hat 7.2 to 2.95 , because 2.96 esentially stinks and doesn't work for real things. so before deeping into that sea of sh*t i would like some recomendations (i.e: bring food, water, morphine, etc.)

very not true. Need to use RedHat 7.2 update for gcc, and keep 2.96, otherwise you'll get introuble. I'd rather try gcc3 instead of 2.95

I use 2.96 (and 2.95 and 3). It's working OK.
But if you'd like to downgrade... Compile it from source. It's easy (well, but you need to have a working version..).
