How do I install an old version of gcc


Hi,

For reasons I won't get into I need an older version of gcc on my FC4 machine. Removing the current version of gcc has proven to be extremely annoying so I'm wondering if anyone knows of a way I can do this without too much pain.

thanks

You can do it with rpm. Rpm offers three options when installing: -i (install), -U (upgrade), and -F (freshen). But, rpm also allows you to downgrad
e an installation. rpm -i --oldpackage <packagename>.rpm.

See the man/info pages or Maximun RPM (from RedHats documentation) for more info.
