the error ? at this time i do not know
BUT "yum install gcc" is the WRONG command

Code:
yum grouplist
-- then from that list --

yum groupinstall " Development Tools" Development Librarys " 

-- and the optional " Gnome Development "

but as to the error ?
what did you do last ? Before this started , what did you install ?

the fact you were using a proxy in the FIRST place would have been very nice to know about in the first post
