I want to make a database program so I figured I'd use mysql++ with a mysql database, only when I go to get the mysql++ libraries I see it is very limited on what systems can use it:
Where it says:
Patch for GCC 3.0.
Is that what I'd download to beable to use mysql++ on my slackware 10.0 machine?
Have you tried the first option of downloading the source? I think that would be your best bet. You should be able to compile that on your computer. When you get the source, there will likely be some better documentation about what patches (if any) you will need for gcc. What would have been cool is if they had supplied a little more info on the download page, but I don't seem to see it there.
