Thread: Problems with GCC-4.3

    Question Problems with GCC-4.3

    Hi Guys,

    I'm using opensuse 11 with KDE 3.5 and I would like to change my gcc version to an older version (4.2) because I'm having some problems with gcc4.3 when I try to compile, for instance, NVIDIA-Cuda.

    Is it possible? If yes, how can I do it?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I guess downgrading is not possible because all programs were build and linked against the new gcc version. But as far as I know it is possible to have multiple gcc's installed ad the same time. There is a howto on the gcc site: GCC Frequently Asked Questions - GNU Project - Free Software Foundation (FSF) .

    hope this helps

    What problems are you having? Often it's easier to resolve the problems
    with the source code, than to replace / downgrade gcc. And installing
    multiple versions of gcc gets confusing quickly.

    Actually, a quick search gives a solution which would help you, from the
    NVIDIA Cuda forums, 'Cuda on Linux', third item from the top...

    "Success on OpenSuse 11"
    http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?s...howtopic=72500

    And from that article, the detailed description of how to achieve "Success
    on OpenSuse 11"

    http://www.acooke.org/cute/GPGPUNVidi0.html

    Give those a try.

    Okay....

    Actually the problems are very easy to solve...I have to include some header files...but, the question is that I don't want to do it.

    Anyways, thanks for your help!
