How to install an older version of gcc compiler


hello!
i'm using Fedora 10.
i need to instal an older version of gcc compiler. my default version is
Quote:
gcc version 4.3.2 20081105 (Red Hat 4.3.2-7) (GCC)
i have already installed compact-gcc-34, but the compilation didn't pass. now, on other computer it apparently works with
Quote:
gcc version 4.1.2 20070925 (Red Hat 4.1.2-33)
the problem is that i cannot install this 4.1. gcc. here's what happens when i try to install it:
Quote:
[root@jimi Download]# yum install gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit

gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm: does not update installed package.
Nothing to do
any suggestions?

i also tried this:
Quote:
[root@jimi Download]# rpm --install gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm
warning: gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4f2a6fd2
error: Failed dependencies:
gcc = 4.1.2-33 is needed by gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386
libstdc++ = 4.1.2-33 is needed by gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386
libstdc++-devel = 4.1.2-33 is needed by gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386
maybe someone has any idea how to fix this...

so i tried another thing:
Quote:
[root@jimi Download]# rpm --install --nodeps gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm
here's what i get:

is there a way to install in another directory so there is no conflict? or do i have to replace gcc-c++-4.3.2-7.i386 with an older version?

The package 'gcc-c++-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm' provides no file
by name 'gcc' but '/usr/bin/c++ , for c++ code only.
For c++ I recommend 'compat-gcc-34-c++'

I'd guess, that a modified gcc-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm from Fedora 8
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...6/os/Packages/
will work in Fedora 10, works with no problems in Fedora 9.
EDIT: Suse gcc41 works. See link below. Post #6.
'cpp-4.1.2-33.i386.rpm' is also needed.

The method is to unpack the rpm's, remove conflicting files,
rename files in /usr/bin, and the most important before use :
# 'chmod -R 0755 <everything>'

The modified result can be copied into Fedora 10, or repacked
to be installed with # 'rpm -Uvh <package> <package>'

I made 2 rpm's, compat41-gcc-4.1.2-33 i386 ( 250 kB ) and
compat41-cpp-4.1.2-33 i386 ( 2.4 MB )
EDIT : For gcc / g++ 4.1 : Use the suse gcc41 packages. Post #6.
http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...oss/suse/i586/
....
Example command using the above :
'CC=gcc-4.1 CXX=g++34 ./configure'
....

@ thinhtelecom , post # 5. Welcome to LQ. ..

1) yum install rpm
.. to be sure you have a version with lzma.
( The oldest version has no lzma decompression.)

2)
http://download.opensuse.org/distrib...oss/suse/i586/
cpp33-3.3.3-15.3.i586.rpm gcc33-3.3.3-15.3.i586.rpm
gcc33-c++-3.3.3-15.3.i586.rpm libstdc++33-devel-3.3.3-15.3.i586.rpm
And may be libstdc++33-3.3.3-15.3.i586.rpm.
..

And may be libstdc++33-3.3.3-15.3.i586.rpm.

Thanks !

I installed these packages, but how can I confirm whether the gcc 3.3 was installed successfully.

Regards,

The testing commands are :
gcc-3.3 -v
g++-3.3 -v

Using gcc-3.3 : gcc-3.3 <code>.c

When you have a Makefile : make CC=gcc-3.3 CXX=g++-3.3
