Hi,

I'm trying to install in Debian a particular version of GCC. I've downloaded from GNU the file gcc-3-3-1.tar.gz. In "/root" I created a directory called "temp" where I placed the file. In "temp" I run the command "tar zxvf gcc-3.3.1.tar.gz" that extracted all the files to the directory "gcc-3.3.1". In temp, I created a new directory called "obj". In "obj" I run the command line "/root/temp/gcc-3.3.1/configure". The program started to run. Then I run make.The problem is that it gave two errors at the end. Then I ran install, and it gave error again. I think I made all the right steps - I followed the manual: created a separate dir for the GCC to be built; didn't define a target so it assumes the host=target, etc...

What am I doing wrong? Did I dowloaded the wrong package? Is there some other command option I should have given?

I'm struggling against time friends. Can someone help me please?

Regards,

Kepler

GCC is a very large application, not the kind of thing you want to be manually compiling from source. Since you're using debian, see if you can use apt-get to install it.
