Ticket #34598 (closed defect: duplicate)
gcc44 installs correctly but default gcc is still used
|Reported by:||JosieZiegler@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
This is probably a very unix newby question so I'm sorry to ask it, but I can't find a good solution in the current tickets, guide or via googling...
I followed this guide (http://jswails.wikidot.com/mac-os-x) to install macports, and use it to update to v 4.4 of the gcc compiler. Note that I am not doing this for the purpose of using the program that the guide-maker is trying to install (amber). I need gcc4.4 for another reason entirely.
Everything appears to be installed properly based on the output when I run "install" and "select" again. However, when I run gcc, it's clear that gcc 4.2 (the default for me) is still being used (see below).
How do I get my computer to actually use the ported version (gcc4.4)?

$ sudo port select gcc mp-gcc44
Selecting 'mp-gcc44' for 'gcc' succeeded. 'mp-gcc44' is now active.
