I'm gonna compile Rodinia benchmark on Gem5-gpu simulator, when I make it complains for gcc-4.4 and give me following error:

make gem5-fusion
make -f Makefile.gem5-fusion
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/hodjat91/Desktop/gem5-gpu/benchmarks/rodinia/backprop'
gcc-4.4 -DOUTPUT -O3 -I../../../gem5/util/m5 -I../../libcuda  -I/usr/local/cuda//include -I/home/hodjat91/NVIDIA_GPU_Computing_SDK/C/common/inc/ -L/home/hodjat91/NVIDIA_GPU_Computing_SDK/C/lib -g -c facetrain.c -o facetrain.c_o

make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/hodjat91/Desktop/gem5-gpu/benchmarks/rodinia/backprop'

I have gcc 5.3 on my system.

Getting g++-4.4 / gcc-4.4 : gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Then add two new lines to the file :

deb [URL] trusty main universe
deb [URL] trusty-updates main universe

My example :

deb http://dk.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty main universe
deb http://dk.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates main universe

Run sudo apt-get update, and you can install gcc-4.4 : sudo apt-get install g++-4.4
