Please be sure to read Upgrading Fedora using package manager for an overview of the entire process as well as the release-specific notes for upgrades between the oldest supported release and the current release.

You should seriously consider stopping now and upgrading to Fedora 17 using the installer.

Whether it’s Fedora 11, 12, 13 Alpha or Beta, the repo will detect what needs to be installed / updated based on $releasever from the repo configuration files.It IS possible to upgrade to the new versions without doing the OS upgrade, but you'd have to probably commpile and package it from the source.The process for each is documented here: Note that you will not be able to upgrade directly from Fedora 12 to Fedora 17 in one go, at the very least this upgrade path is untested.So if you absolutely must have GCC 4.8.1 now (which seems unlikely given the age of your distribution), then you'll probably either have to find a third-party package or build it from source yourself.Regardless, I'd still recommend upgrading Fedora to reduce dependency complications.
