    Mixing gcc 2.9* with gcc 3.*

    Hi all,

    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?

    TIA, rotis23

    this may or may not help...
    From what I have read it doesn't really solve it, but it does shed some light on the subject and one post got a program to work...

    good luck.
