Question setting to work with older GCC!!

Hi Everyone

Im new in using linux and im using FC5. I have choosed to install the legacy gcc-3.2 along side the development package (inculding gcc-4.0).

gcc-4.0 is the version in function now, how can i set my CC & gcc version to the older version, gcc32 & g++32 reside in usr/bin. Im interested to use the older version permanently.

Thank you very much.

Tweak it in your build system...

For example in make....


or whatever you want. That's what I do.

Any particular reason for using the older version?

Last time I rolled a large software system forward to gcc-4 the new warnings it coughed up were actually all real problems that needed fixing.


fc5, gcc
