I still have a system running on Dapper Drake which i don't want to update. Now i have to install gcc-3.4 on this system but the Ubuntu repository is shut down and removed.

Is there anyway to get a precompiled package?

The packages you are looking for are still available at packages.ubuntu.com as far as I can see.

Update: packages from old releases may now be found at: old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool –  anol Mar 24 at 10:24
