Where did gcc-4.5 go?

Postby mondesser on Fri Dec 28, 2012 10:22 am

Hi,

I recently re-installed LMDE (new hard drive) and am no longer able to install gcc.4-5 from the repos.
If I remember correctly i was able to install it directly from the repos a few months ago. I need exactly this version because I have to build a kernel module for a binary kernel that was built using gcc-4.5.

Any idea where I can get the gcc4.5 packges from? I already searched packages.debian.org but they only offer gcc-4.5 for alpha, armhf and hppa architectures.

Thanks!

Any idea why it is not on packages.debian.org?
There must be some reason why they removed it.

No I haven't
And yes there must be. So be careful with it in case it has some horrible bug or security flaw.
