From the Zug How-to's
Note that many of the newer distributions now use GCC3.2 or later as their default compiler. This means that when compiling for the desktop it will not be able to link to the sdk files as they were created using GCC 2.95. To fix this problem you need to install 2.95 for your distribution.

Does anyone have, or know of a simple how-to for installing and using multiple versions of gcc on a linux box? I was looking at graft... but there must be an easier way?

I have a little extra time during the Holidays and would like to try some things without damaging my current setup.

Talking about cross-compilers? They should end up in seperate directories anyway so it should be fine, then just source a script to alter $PATH accordingly.

That said, if you're talking about OZ, download and use OE - it sorts out the GCC 3.x.x toolchain for you (the 2.95 toolchain is only needed to compile kernels)
