I am a software developer, presently porting a game engine from Visual Studio to GCC. I'm working on LTS 10.04.
The project uses C++ lambdas, and I really would like to keep it this way. Therefore, I need GCC >= 4.5 to compile it.
I wouldn't like to reinstall entire OS, or to have to manually update this single program every time.
Is there an option to update it from 10.10 repositories, pointing out, that I need only this package (and it's dependencies)? Or is there any PPA that does the trick for me?
Generally, the entire packaging system of Ubuntu rocks, as long as I can find up-to-date PPAs of all packages I need to have in recent versions (like mono).
