Try installing it via Yum.

yum install gcc

You may need to search the forums here for configuring yum properly.

Install gcc 4.7.3

I have the same problem when I try to install gcc on suse Linux enterprise desktop11, the configure script says:
Error: no acceptable c compiler found in $PATH.
Please any help, I appreciate.
Thanks.

You should ask this question in the Suse Distribution Forum, not here.

But the generalities of the answers here apply to you also. The Suse people should supply a gcc compiler package that you do not have to configure, compile, link, and install. Instead, the compiler and supporting libraries and programs will already be compiled from source code, and you just install the executables with your package manager.

In Redhat/Fedora land the packages are called ".rpm" files (that are not ".src.rpm" files) and they are installed from the command prompt with the "yum" program, like it says in the earlier reply above. The package names and installer-program names are different in Suse, I don't know what they are. That is why you should ask this question there.

wrong forum
please use the suse forum here

but

use the suse opendatabase
http://software.opensuse.org
type in gcc and search
BUT sence this IS "SUSE Enterprise Linux Desktop 11" service pack 3 ( SELD11 sp3)
you do have the required and mandatory SUPPORT contract
https://www.suse.com/products/desktop/how-to-buy/

-- the one you are spending $120 per year on
-- you might want to use it

Thanks folks for your information. Especially John VV, these resources might be helpful, once again thank you all but SUSE is just a flavor of Linux, the concept is the same.

After posting I realized that this post refers to Fedora-Core 2 which hasn't been supported since 2005.
As a side note @jdn it's better to open a new thread instead of resurrecting an old 1. Anyyway the command I provided in my previous post is still valid.
If you still have questions open a new thread.
