Authors/Port authors:

Ports of GNU GCC 3.x and 4.x, which ensure 100% compatibility with ANSI C/C++. Starting from 3.3.5(CSD4) release, introduced new features: fork() support, symlinks, chroot support, and many new functions.

For the old 3.3 version you can also look at , while on OS2site all the versions are stored:

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.
