gcc 4.5 Packages for Ubuntu Lucid

Thursday, 14 October 2010

Ubuntu Maverick was released earlier this week. Amongst other things, gcc 4.5 is available in the repositories, whereas for previous versions you had to build it yourself from source.

In order to save you the pain of compiling gcc 4.5 for yourself (which can take a while, and overheated my laptop when I tried), I've built it for Ubuntu Lucid, and uploaded the .deb files to my website. The .debs are built from the Maverick source packages for gcc 4.5.1, binutils 2.20.51, cloog-ppl and mpclib, and I've built them for both i386 and amd64 architectures.

Enjoy!

Why don't you create your own PPA in Launchpad and build packages there? There are a number of advantages: - it would save you bandwidth - Launchpad automatically creates Packages and Packages.gz for apt (no need to dpkg -i packages) - it's searchable

Here's a backport of gcc 4.5 to Karmic:

I might well do that, thanks for the suggestion. In the short term it was quicker to upload here, but in the long term a PPA would be better.
