What distro?

Just for your benefit, it helps to list your distro in the usercp so you don't have to specify everytime.

Thats a really good idea. I'll do that.

I am using the Core distro, wich as i understand is
really a lack of a distro :-)

I am trying to compile gcc from source (if there are any other way).

Ok, then you need one of our resident slackers or gentoo folks I am an rpm man myself so src based installs give me the creeps . Anybody here installed this from src??

EDIT: I just checked on www.distrowatch.com and it lists gcc as being 3.2 with CORE. I am a little confused as to how you ended up with a different version. I BELIEVE you, just puzzling is all.

The answer is actually rather simple:
I use an old version of Core :-)

In retrospect i find that is a bad idea,
but i gotta learn how to install gcc sometime.

Ahhh. DW only listed one release, so I rather foolishly assumed you had that one. Well gcc (and X) are tough nuts to crack...lots of deps and it can cause headaches. I'm sure you'll figure it out but maybe not before you hose your install

BTW nice sig

You cant just replace the GCC. If you have a differenct GCC than what your distro was compiled on, nothing will work.

Now, you can run the two GCCs side by side, but its a pain, and many of the programs you compile on the new one, wont work on your distro.

I suggest upgrading to a better distribution. Ive never even heard of Core, but maybe im an idiot.
