using gcc3 instead of gcc4

Okay, I am trying to figure out how to set my system to use gcc3 instead of gcc4 to build LFS. It seems that gcc4 causes too many problems if I am following the book.

My host system is running OpenSuse.

Follow my advice, download a LFS LiveCD and use that to build a Linux From Scratch system. If I remember correctly, it comes with GCC3 by default. Though that could have changed from the last time I checked it, which was several months ago.

But if you really want to build it inside of OpenSuse, then see if you can uninstall gcc4 and install gcc3 in it's place then go from there.

Okay, I'll do that then. I actually got the hard copy of the book for my b-day a few months ago and it comes with the CD.

It is always possible to install another GCC in a directory like /opt/gcc-3.3.6 and add its bin directory to the PATH environment variable.
