    I was reading some articles and I thought that I have to download the latest GCC so I installed the following packages: cpp-mainline-3.4.1-1.1.i586.rpm, gcc-mainline-3.4.1-1.1.i586.rpm & glibc-devel-2.3.3-98.i586.rpm but I till getting the same error. I also download this TAR File gcc-3.3.4-20040530.tar.gz but I don't know how to install that. I not quite sure if i even doing the right thing... I'm desperate because I have about 4 days reading forums but I haven't find a solution yet.... I'm new using Linux... Can someone help?

    It's much easier to install it with YaST.. If you're using Personal edition, you have to change the Source of installation to a FTP mirror (http://www.suse.com/us/private/downl...t_mirrors.html) and then do the Install and Remove software. gcc can't be found on the personal cd, so that's why you should change the source from cd to ftp.
