I just wanted to install gEdit (my favorite text editor/IDE ) on Mac OS X and gcc44 is taking HOURS to compile. It sucks because it makes my laptop a usable stove. Not good.

    so much for 'light weight'

    just learn vim. You'll be much happier. Until you want to use an IDE or Office Suite and realize nobody supports the advanced editing controls of vim.

    "gcc44", as in "GCC 4.4", as in "GNU Compiler Collection 4.4"?

    I believe this is what he's referring to, not gedit itself.
