Installing gcc on Fedora

I am trying to install gcc4.8.2 on fedora but have encountered problems.

This is the error I got when running configure

configure: error: Building GCC requires GMP 4.2+, MPFR 2.4.0+ and MPC 0.8.0+.

So I went along to install the three of them

I installed gmp-4.3.2 which went ok

However when I got to install mpfr-3.1.2, I did "make check" after doing "./configure" and "make".

"make check" reported the following error and I am now stuck

ERROR! The versions of gmp.h (4.3.2) and libgmp (4.3.1) do not match.

Why are you installing gcc by hand? Surely Fedora has packages for it. Installing things by hand doesn't inform your package manager and can cause awful errors and conflicts.

What things have you installed manually so far? I foresee problems...

There must be another libmpfr already installed on your OS, and I assume you're building from source so package tracking has been skipped.

What I meant was libgmp

If you like to compile a compiler by hand you'll be compiling almost the whole toolchain. And you're never sure it'll be stable enough since you're building a completely untested toolchain

Yes I foresee loads of problems
My system was changed to Fedora 13 ant am stuck with gcc (GCC) 4.4.5 20101112 (Red Hat 4.4.5-2)
This is too old for what I want to do and am insalling gcc4.8.2

How can I clean up libgmp so I can install it again?

When doing "make install" on mpfr-3.1.2 I get the following error. How can I remove this problem?

ldconfig: libraries and in directory /usr/lib have same soname but different type.

Idid ls and got the following:

ls -l /usr/lib/libgmp*

By 'cleaning up' you run the risk of wrecking your one good compiler, which would be a disaster... My advice, leave it alone, install everything separately.

./configure should be doing that by default, actually, it should put everything in /usr/local/...

You may need to use custom options to tell ./configure to search in /usr/local/ for libgmp and such, and need LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib" to find the right libraries when you run them, but this will allow you to get a new compiler working without replacing parts of your old one..

Need some guidance through installing everything separately.

I have downloaded what I need,

What, exactly, have you been doing?

./configure should have been installing in /usr/local/, not /usr/, unless you gave ./configure PREFIX="/usr".
