Installing gcc and g++ from the source


Please, can you give me a step by step installation of the gcc and g++ compiler from the source (I gain nothing from the GNU compiler homepage).

Thanks,
Tunababa

Look harder.

My strong recommendation, however, is: "don't."

You should find that "gcc" components are already available as packages that you can install on your system in whatever is "the usual way," and you should do that.

Reason: the "gcc" suite is used to build both itself and everything else. More importantly, the "glibc" libraries are used by everything else. Including the most-fundamental software components of the entire system.

Yup.
