Red Hat Linux Enterprise 6.2 server evaluation version


I have installed a Red Hat Linux Enterprise 6.2 server evaluation version on Dell Desktop. It is an old Dell Desktop.
I am not sure why the package does not come with gcc, g++,
xterm etc. Would anyone please help?
Thanks.

As I know RHEL has an installable package system managed by "YUM"
Code:
# yum info gcc
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: ftp.example.com
Installed Packages
Name       : gcc
Arch       : i386
Version    : 4.1.2
Release    : 51.el5
Size       : 9.6 M
Repo       : installed
Summary    : Various compilers (C, C++, Objective-C, Java, ...)
URL        : http://gcc.gnu.org
License    : GPL
Description: The gcc package contains the GNU Compiler Collection version 4.1.
           : You'll need this package in order to compile C code.


# yum search xterm
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: ftp.example.com
=========================================================== Matched: xterm ============================================================
xterm.i386 : xterm terminal emulator for the X Window System

I'd be really surprised if it didn't come with gcc. Maybe you didn't select all the packages you need during the install?

What you might want to do is use CentOS 6 as it is a binary recompile of RHEL 6 sources. CentOS doesn't require a subscription like RHEL and so long as you use standard repositories it should be very much like RHEL 6 for your evaluation purposes.

I thought so and I re-installed again. It has never prompted me the software options.
It prompts me only configure time zone and language selection etc. It has never prompted me the hostname set up either.

As far as I know, the server version doesn't have gcc. After all, who develops software on a server?

gcc is used to compile packages when being installed from source rather than from rpm/yum. Although it was common on UNIX systems not to have more than a rudimentary compiler because one had to pay extra for a full blown one (e.g. HP-UX ANSI C) I've not run into a Linux system yet that didn't have it installed including my RHEL installs up through RHEL 6.
