Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I installed gcc as described above it installed pretty well, but when I call gcc -v it just shows the former version gcc4.6.3. I do not know where to find the installation so that I can make a link to call it. Any help?

tar xzf gcc-4.6.2.tar.gz
cd gcc-4.6.2
cd ..
mkdir objdir
cd objdir
$PWD/../gcc-4.6.2/configure --prefix=$HOME/gcc-4.6.2 
make install

All were done from my home directory.
