installing new g++


When I installed redhat 8.0 on machine A, g++ version 3.2 was automatically installed.
However, it seems to have problem compiling some C++ programs. These programs compile OK on another machine B running redhat 7.2 with g++ 2.96

I was wondering : what can I do now? Can I just download g++ 2.96, untar it somewhere in machine A, edit my personal path... so that whenever in my user account, when g++ is called, version 2.96 will be invoked?

Are there any complications?

Yee Seng.

I think that redhat 8.0 also installs the gcc-2.96 packages,or at least they are on the cdrom,
try gcc-2.96 on the command line,
I hope that you could carry on from after this,coz this is not the newbie forum ,right?
