I just checked my system's packages and the version on it. The version
of binutils and GCC  is higher than recommended.

Binutils: (GNU Binutils for Ubuntu) 2.20
gcc (Ubuntu 4.4.1-4ubuntu9) 4.4.1

One option is that I uninstall them and reinstall the earlier version.
But as I am not very experienced I am not sure how much it will effect
the system. Is there an alternate solution. Presently I am using
Ubuntu 9.10

And how do I make sure about symlink for

The output of version  check is as follows. I guess every thing else is fine.

bash, version 4.0.33(1)-release
/bin/sh -> /bin/dash
