I am trying to have a C++11 compiler that works.
It seems (if the publicity is right... and typically it never usually is!) that gnu g++ 4.8 might be it.
So I installed Ubuntu 12.04 read the instruction on multiple sites, did EXACTLY as it was said, got (obviously) errors, repeated again, got the same result, tried different ways, etc.
Typically I get completely cryptic errors such as:: error 4 or error 2 WITHOUT any sort of error log available nor information to consult (this is very very typical of my experience with gnu).
This is extraordinarily frustrating.
How does the community cope with this? Are you all saints and fabulously resilient to continue working in those conditions?
So I ask: has anybody ever succeeded in building/loading/using SUCCESSFULLY g++ 4.8 on a Ubuntu computer?
Then in what mysterious ways have you been able to achieve this monumental achievement?
