installing gcc 4.0.1(binaries)


gcc is not installed in my system;so i got from a CD-> GCC 4.0.1(gcc-4.0.1.tar.bz2);
bunzipped it(in /home/naveen/as/gcc-4.0.1).
Now I am not able to install it; when i type ./configure --prefix=/usr/local,
it gives error 'building in source directory is not supported in this version'.
Please give me the descriptive steps to install it.

Why not use an rpm?

For FC4, gcc-4.0.1-4.fc4.i386.rpm is available at :

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...pdates/4/i386/

or from one of the fedora mirrors:

Angry

the rpm you said i downloaded it ;now it says it cannot install because it cannot find glibc-devel 2.3.5-10.
Should i install it to;what additional thing i need to install.
Also is the rpm---> glibc-devel 2.3.5-10.i386.rpm different from glibc-devel 2.3.5-10.3.i386.rpm.
Plz explain

Why not let yum do the heavy lifting?

Try:

yum install gcc*

If yum runs into an unresolved dependency problem, then use yum to install the dependency and then use it to install gcc.
