2016-10-11 08:30:27 -0500 commented answer Fedora 24: How do I install and change the default gcc compiler version?

Why is that needed though? In what situations would a program fall back to a link with lower priority?

Thanks for this - can you explain what the arguments to update-alternatives do? I assume the final number is a priority or something? What is this for?

2016-10-05 03:43:55 -0500 asked a question Fedora 24: How do I install and change the default gcc compiler version?

I am attempting to install some software using a fork of Linuxbrew known as Cadfaelbrew. (It is used primarily in the HEP industry.)

Unfortunately there is a bug which means Cadfaelbrew does not recognize gcc version 6.2 as supporting c++11.

However Cadfaelbrew does work with gcc version 4.9 on CentOS. (Which is a very similar OS to Fedora, as both are Redhat like OS's.)

To sidestep this problem (I cannot fix the bug myself) I would like to install gcc version 4.9 on my Fedora 24 system (using dnf, probably?).

I then need to change the default gcc compiler so that the command gcc/g++ point to the gcc/g++ version 4.9 compilers rather than the version 6.2 compilers.

How can I do that?

In addition, I would like to know how to revert the changes so that I am able to use gcc/g++ version 6 by default in the future.

Yeah that worked thank you

2016-08-27 16:19:43 -0500 asked a question How to set the keyboard delay and repeat rate in Fedora 24 Workstation (gnome)

Simple question, hopefully a simple answer.

I have not used gnome shell 3 before but notice many things seem to be missing from the settings gui editior.

The super slow repeat rate and super long delay are currently making everything about gnome 3 difficult to use. Can I edit these and make my life easier?

Okay thanks how would I do that?

2016-08-25 15:52:38 -0500 asked a question codelite 9.2 and Fedora 24

I have installed codelite 9.2 according to the steps described at http://codelite.org/LiteEditor/Reposi...

From my command line history:

13  sudo rpm --import http://repos.codelite.org/CodeLite.asc
20  sudo rpm -Uvh http://repos.codelite.org/rpms-9.2/fedora/codelite-9.2-1.fc24.x86_64.rpm

When running codelite I get the following error. (Run in terminal)

codelite: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I tried installing sudo dnf install SDL2.x86_64 however this did not help...
