Fedora always keeps up with the latest and greatest. This is really ironic - a "scientific" OS falls way behind wrt compiler updates. Also, the upgrades are not frequent enough (based on what little I know about it), so even if a newer version becomes available today, I'd have to wait much longer for the next update. Finally, I am by NO means even at the entry level when it comes to OS stuff - I really just want to focus on my work using something I feel very comfortable with by now (because of the regular updates and improvements)
Ahh, so you have something that needs a newer version of GCC. Makes sense. does CentOS 6.3 have it by chance?

So, I'm still stuck and the saga continues :)

Sorry I haven't been more help.
