Installing Gcc Compiler on RHEL 4


Hi

GCC Compiler 3.4 is certified on RHEL 4 version. Can we install GCC Compiler 2.96 on RHEL 4.

Currently we are on Linux 2.1AS with GCC 2.96 with lot of complex code. Hence after upgrading to RHEL 4 we are not sure whether the GCC 2.96 compiled code will work fine in higher GCC Version.

Thanks in advance

For most RH based distros there is compat-libstdc++-296 and compat-libstdc++-33 for the C++ compatibility. compat-libgcc-296 and compat-libgcc-34 for the respective versions.

You can install the older versions but it is usually a major PITA. I have not heard of any programs that have not compiled using the compat libs.

If you are just installing RHEL4 for this, I would skip it and go to RHEL5.

Good Luck
Lazlow
