No "gcc" could be found on

Asked by AN

I've tried to figure out what GCC versions are available in various versions of Ubuntu, opened page, entered 'gcc' in the search string, chosen 'all' in "Distribution", and got the following:

You have searched for packages that names contain gcc in all suites, all sections, and all architectures. Found 2 matching packages.
Package gccxml

    quantal (devel): XML output extension to GCC
    0.9.0+cvs20120420-3: amd64 i386

Package libgccxml-dev

    quantal (libdevel): Libraries for building extension to gccxml output
    0.9.0+cvs20120420-3: amd64 i386

Where all gcc gone? Or is it an issue of the search system on

PS: I have Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty" installed, and I have gcc-4.4 and gcc-4.5 installed, so should give at least these package names in search results for sure.

PPS: What are plans about packaging of gcc-4.6 and gcc-4.7?

Perhaps scroll down to the list there. (or just click on overview on top of this page)

For example 4.4.6 and .7 are there.

Anyway atm package search works again.

Hiccup of search function already reported. bug 996784

Thanks, the problem with packages searching looks solved.

Also thanks for info about default GCC versions.
