    I have checked the gcc with YaST, and YaST shows gcc as installed. (The package name is "cpp" and the summary says "The GCC Preprocessor") dont know if this is the ture one??

    i think you haven't installed ggc compiler.put the first cd of suse and choose update existing system.then search gcc and install it.you can also do it using yast2 by selecting sortware->install and remove software.then choose to install gcc and the other compilers too.if doesnot work though google for gcc and download it from the internet..

    make and gcc are missing or not correctly installed. Install or Re-install them both as stathisx says.

    my dear friends, unfortunately there seems no problem with the gcc. I have searched gcc and it returned "cpp" and "libgcc" packages. Is there any other?
    Does user permissions make effect? Because I am not logging as root while using the pc.
    And, I have downloaded a file named gcc-3.3.4-20040530.tar.gz but could not install it It was 27MB but after extracting it, become 119MBs.

    thank you for your help.

    all these things you should do it as root of course (gcc installation).although i don't think that gcc is that big..you may not have the appropriate file downloaded (i think)

    Dear stathisx;
    I solved my old problem but now another problem rises. My new favorite problem is follows:
    ---------------------------------------
    checking for X... configure: error: Can't find X includes. Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
    ----------------------------------------
    I searched any X free components and installed them with YaST (they were all rpms) but still I am having this headache....

    Would anyone offer a help for me????
    Thank you all..

    maybe you're missing some libraries..go to section compilers or libraries using yast2 and install all of them..

    Not fair! You didn't say how you solved it. I have the exact same problem. How did you fix it?
