I already sort of responded in a different thread, but here are more
specifics: on kUbuntu Breezy, Adept found gcc 3.4 no problem. The only
repositories I had defined were breezy (main, restricted) and
breezy-updates (main, restricted) on ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu.
Once installed, 3.4 is available as /usr/bin/gcc-3.4. /usr/bin/gcc is
symlinked to 4.0. There is no executable called gccselect, although
there may be another mechanism available to choose between installed
version of the gcc toolchain.
