    You can always go to www.gnu.org to download the source and install from that.

    cdrom

    Ok I found the cdrom but gcc and g++ are not included?? Would it be under a different name for the Caldera distribution? Thanks

    gnu

    Tried installing the tarball from the link above. I got the following error
    when doing ./configure for gcc3.2.2

    checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly created file is older than distributed files!
    Check your system clock

    Thanks

    Could you check the output of "ls -l configure; date" (in the unpacked directory)?

    So your system clock is set to Oct 13 2002? No wonder it complained. =)
    Just set your system clock at will work better.

    I would suggest running something like ntpd. I run a ntp server and have all my other servers sync their clocks to it. Never have to worry about incorrect time.

    Exactly, I'm doing the same. See http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/ for the U.S. master clock.
