Gcc -v ?

Hi there

I'm running mdk 9.1 and I want to compile bahamut.
But for some reason, who only knows why, it won't compile with gcc 3 or above.

I had a look at gcc --help and it mentions;
gcc -V <version> Run gcc version number <version>, if installed.

I'd like to try and compile bahamut using version 2.xx

I'm just curious if someone can tell me exactly how it works, heh, I've tried every combination of switches I can think of, and no go.

Help muchly appreciated!

"gcc -V <version> Run gcc version number <version>, if installed.

Do you have version 2.xx installed? If so then you can simply use the full path name for the alternate version of gcc, i.e.

If you want to install an old version of the compiler then you will probably also have to install the corresponding version of glibc.

Also I recommend gcc 2.95 as being an excellent release of gcc.

Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
