Some time ago, I managed to find PPA featuring g++-4.7 build. However, I had to reinstall everything on my machine and I lost name of that PPA. Could anyone point me to it? I tried to find it again, but without any luck. I'm on Ubuntu 11.10 installation.

The Toolchain test builds PPA contains many packages including gcc-4.7.



You can add the repository using



sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test


Then, to install it use



sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install g++-4.7


To change the default compiler use update-alternatives



sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-4.6 60 --slave /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-4.6
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-4.7 40 --slave /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-4.7
sudo update-alternatives --config gcc
