don't really need cpp-3.4, do I?

understand this right?
Sure, if you want to program in C without ever using any header files
with #include. [No programs with printf(), scanf(), or any other
useful library functions that you are probably taking for granted.]
In short, you do NOT understand that right.
Yeah, I read more about these packages and that cleared that up. Thanks
for the info through.
it would seem that you should be having 3.4.6-8 show up in your
package manager. If not, consider switching to a different mirror
I am not sure yet, I use some FORTRAN libraries for which I need the
libg2c0 package. That package appears to be marked for removal with the
new gcc version. But I see your point, I will have to look at all the
factors before letting the older gcc packages to be upgraded.
