    RPM question - Please help


    I've been working through a book on Linux and recently installed Red Hat 8.0. Following a lab in my book I installed the apt package manager with the Synoptic GUI front end. Using Synoptic/apt I upgraded my Kernal and all the installed packages.

    Now, in a later lab I am learning how to compile and install programs from source code. Everything goes along great until I execute the "make" command and an error occurs telling me I do not have a suitable "C" complier installed. My lab procedure tell me I may encounter this error, and if so; go back and install the Developer tools off the CD-ROM.

    Problem: When I go to install the Developer Tools off the CD-ROM, the installer flags about 8 dependencies that are needed. In checking my packages I find that I have all the programs identified as dependencies, just newer versions. (I guess they where all upgraded when I ran the apt/Synoptic utility).

    How do I install additional RPM's off the CD after upgrading existing dependencies?

    Find the newer version rather than using the one in the CD.
