    How To Install GCC?

    I'm a linux newbie and I was wondering how to do it. I'm running Fedora core 4. I can't compile the source code because I don't understand how to configure it. I was reading on it but it is way to comicated to understand. I tried a already compiled binary from openpkg but after I installed it I tried to compile something but it said gcc wasn't installed.

    Try configuring yum and doing
    # yum install gcc
    You can also install gcc from the Fedora Core CDs.

    What application are you trying to install? I'm sure there's probably a precompiled package available.

    Yeah, there is a pre-compiled package available but there are other applications that only put out source code so I need it. It is on my Fedora Core 4 dvd because I had it installed before but forgot to install it when I was installing Fedora (If that makes sense). How would I go about installing it from the dvd now?

    Ok, I found the following gcc files on the disc, which one should I use?

    Ok figured that out but now I have an error when trying to 'make" when compiling something.

    Are you trying to install xmms? If so, is it not available through yum? Try (as root):
    yum install xmms
