    The program you probably want to look at is called urpmi. It works like this:

    Code:
    urpmi install gcc
    Or something to that effect. Mandrake folks, please correct me if my syntax is off. I assume it's similar to apt-get in Debian.

    It is urpmi <package name>. So I assume in your case it would be:
    Code:
    urpmi gcc
    Check out this link for more on urpmi: http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/walte...rpm-howto.html
