  • Linux Lite: 5.2 64bit
Hello,

I installed Linux Lite 1h ago and in the package manager I can see gcc 9 and gcc 10:
https://pasteboard.co/798ad879-31a9-442f-8c42-660ac1457acf

I really only need the latest and greatest not sure how or why I have two gcc.
I did try to search for gcc 10 in my system but I can only find gcc 9.

How can I just have gcc 10 and not mess anything up?

"Image not found" That img you uploaded, is not there. Use imgur https://imgur.com/ or imgBB https://imgbb.com/  https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/introductions/forum-posting-guidelines/

You can keep both, and make one the default, just type in a terminal
Code: [Select]
sudo update-alternatives --config gcc

You'll see something like
Code: [Select]
There are 3 choices for the alternative gcc (providing /usr/bin/gcc).

  Selection    Path            Priority   Status
------------------------------------------------------------
* 0            /usr/bin/gcc-8    90        auto mode
  1            /usr/bin/gcc-9    70        manual mode
  2            /usr/bin/gcc-10  80        manual mode
 
Press <enter> to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number:

Select the one you want to use and that's it.

Hope this helps! :)

Hey,

This is the image: https://pasteboard.co/JPdQnzZ.png

It seems that I don't have an extra gcc even though I am seeing one there.
Thanks for your help

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root       35464 Aug  8  2020 x86_64-linux-gnu-gcc-ranlib-9


so gcc is set to gcc9 how to I get rid of gcc9 or at least just switch gcc to gcc10 (and hopefully not cause conflicts on anything)

They may both be there for a reason. You can test your option in a VM first.

The reason is that I installed gcc10, but I was hoping that gcc10 would then be set as default :)

Code: [Select]
~ sudo update-alternatives --config gcc
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for gcc

Did you read my reply???
The accepted answer talks about update-alternatives which I've already shown says there are no alternatives.

But if this is as simple as just changing the symlink and there will be no issues sure, I'll change.

Open the terminal and run
Code: [Select]
gcc -v
And paste the output in your reply.
