Choosing gcc compiler

Hello I would like to compile a program and it’s failing, I’d like to try and compile it with the 3.3 version that also comes with Suse 12.1 instead of the default 4.6.2. How can this be done, could someone please advise me?. Thank you.

Try this first;



export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-3.3
export CXX=/usr/bin/g++-3.3
