    Fluxbox and FC2

    I downloaded and installed GCC 3.4.3 yesterday because I kept getting errors saying GCC wasn't installed when I tried to install fluxbox. Well, it said 3.3.3 was already installed. Great right? wrong.

    Today I downloaded fluxbox (fluxbox-0.1.14.tar.gz) and unarchieved it. That went fine. When I typed in ./configure it went throught this big list checking GCC(c++, etc) and said nothing was there, so it ended up with an error. Here is the whole thing:

     [root@localhost root]# cd fluxbox-0.1.14/
    [root@localhost fluxbox-0.1.14]# ./configure

    SO what do I do? Everytime I try to install GCC again, it doesn't update to the newest version. DO I need to uninstall the 3.3.3 and than install 3.4.3? If so, how do I remove it?

    I really want to switch to fluxbox cause I've used it else where and I ove it more than kde and gnome.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. btw i am a noob

    then reinstall gcc

    Well GCC is working fine now.

    But now I apparently need X Window Libraries and I'm gonna look up fluxbox with google and see if any site has the packages I need.

    Update, Fluxbox is installled via yum installation.

    Now how do I set it so I can see the Gnome icons in Fluxbox? How do I set it as default session?
    And next, im off to getting a new, cool theme.
