    PPA for modern GCC?

    Hi,

    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).

    Regards,
    akuda

    Unsupported & unmaintained for various technical reasons, but try https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-toolchain/+archive/test

    great, thanks

    but it lacks of C++ support. I tried with gcc -x c++, and it says that it mises cc1plus. Any clues?
