OK, redhat 7.2 and 7.3 are distributed with gcc 2.9*. redhat 8.0 is distributed with gcc 3.2.
Now from my experience, and research, you cannot mix libraries that are compiled with 2.9* with libraries that are compiled with 3.2* (because of differing paths and symbols); particularly c++ libraries.
Is this true?
Is there any way that you can link with 2.9* libraries whilst using gcc 3.2?
Is it undesirable to mix?
