Anybody having problems with "make" in RedHat 7.3? "cc" not found ?

Everytime I want to compile a progam under RH 7.3 with the "make" command, it says "cc" not found. What does this mean?

Does this mean I have to install gcc? Well I did, and while I tried installing one of the depencies, (kernel Headers), I couldnt find it on any of the three cd's.

Can somebody help, I'm all out of ideas?

I have a feeling that RH 7.2 was better then RH 7.3? Which version do you guys like better?

Another thing that was better in RH 7.2 is that it came with Linuxconf, and RH 7.3 doesnt even have that feature anymore.

Kernel headers are too important, so they must be included somewhere. If you can't find kernel-headers package, install kernel-source instead.

Development packages, kernel source, and kernel headers aren't usually installed by default; you'll have to RPM them off the CD. On my Redhat 7.2 package, most (all?) of the necessary packages are on the first CD.

I have recently run into similar problems with Mandrake 8.2 I was fortunate enough to find them on the 1st install CD. You may have already found this, but go to /mnt/cdrom/Redhat/RPMS and there is where I found all mine. GCC et al What I did to find which RPM's I needed was use kpackage to try to install whatever it was and it told me which dependencies haven't been satisified. Then it was trial and error, more trial than error. Good Luck.
