Install/ UnInstall GCC


Hello out there!

I am using Redhat 7.2, I have default gcc-2.96 version with it. For installation of QT3.2.2 I need gcc 3.2.
So, I need to know

1. Can I have 2 versions for gcc at a time ?
2. If not how can I uninstall any version of gcc ?
3. how to Install gcc form the .tar of it obtained form gcc.org in simple steps ?
(whats given there is too complicated)
here's little ask for help to you.

Ajit

1. You should be able to. But there is no reason to, just upgrade the old version to a new version.

2. Assuming that you installed gcc as a rpm (The version that comes with redhat is installed by rpm), simply "rpm -e gcc" at the command line. I don't suggest that you remove gcc though, as other programs depend on it. Try this:

3. Find an rpm version of gcc. Install it using "rpm -uvh gcc-version.rpm" This will upgrade your current version of gcc to the new version that you have downloaded.
To answer your question:
Code:
tar -xzvf fileName.tar.gz
cd fileName
./configure && make && make install
as root should do the trick

I hope this helps

Thanks Iam,
As pre your suggestion I tried, but got following error.


[root@Ajits_Linux Personal]# rpm -i gcc-3.2-7.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
cpp = 3.2-7 is needed by gcc-3.2-7
binutils >= 2.12.90.0.7-1 is needed by gcc-3.2-7
glibc-devel >= 2.2.90-12 is needed by gcc-3.2-7
libgcc >= 3.2-7 is needed by gcc-3.2-7
rpmlib(PartialHardlinkSets) <= 4.0.4-1 is needed by gcc-3.2-7
gdb < 5.1-2 conflicts with gcc-3.2-7

How to make way out of it now ?

Try downloading and installing apt4rpm. This is a port of Debian's apt-get for RPM based systems, and automatically resolves dependancies.
When you have downloaded and installed it, type "apt-get update" and then "apt-get install gcc"
This should install gcc, along with all the required dependancies.
