Head over to gcc's homepage and download a newer version. Read the README directions once or twice, the FAQ, any INSTALL files you might find and have a go at it.

As a tip.... have the new gcc or your old gcc binary renamed so you don't wack over your old one.

Good Luck

It's not that hard.

Awwww come on man.. Now your realy being lazy.. A quick search on this forums will show you how to.. Try searching for a change .. Here is the answer anyway.

1- Open a console
2- I hope you know to what directory you downloaded the rpm to lol
3- cd to that directory
4- rpm -ivh whatever.rpm

Thats all
