Dear my mentors :D

I'm currently doing some experiment, and need specific version of GCC and other things.
Just wondering if I can install lower version of GCC and use them while booted with LIVE CD.

The problem is that the packages which I'm looking for is quite old.
(Binutils as 2.12 or lower than 2.24, and GCC as 4.1.2 or lower than 4.8.3)

Yeah you're right, now I'm building CLFS and want to make it gentoo alike.

So are there any ways to do that? or should I use installed versions?(on LIVE CD)


[EDIT 0]
CLFS Host System Requirements
Below is a list, I selected what is an issue for me.
<Binutils-2.12(<2.24)>
<GCC-4.1.2, G++(<4.8.3)>
<Glibc-2.2.5(<2.19)>

These three packages are the issue for me.
Want to install them and use them.

[EDIT 1]
(BTW, Sorry for too much editing, but I found some resource again.)
I found that I can download and install those packages from GNU.org or elsewhere.
But How can I use them instead of pre-installed version.
And If there is a good resource to look for while installing specific old version?(such as walking around dependency, library issues?)

whjeon,

You cannot slip such old packages under a current Gentoo.
They no longer support a the way things work today.

If you know how Gentoo works you can install a whole old Gentoo.
All the ebuilds that were ever in the portage repository are available either from git or cvs.
Getting sources may be a problem. They won't be on the Gentoo mirror system any more.

There are some old Gentoo bits and pieces online that you can start from.
Humm binutils-2.12 goes bacx to April 2002, that's just before my first Gentoo install.

I agree with NeddySeagoon.

You could try to install these old packages manually. Unpack source files to '/usr/local/src' and try to configure, make and install using '--prefix=/usr/local' and '--exec-prefix=/usr/local'. It won't be easy... Make sure that everything you do is restricted to /usr/local and subdirectories. If you overwrite any of the files in / or /usr (and subdirectories), you'll be lost...
