Fix a path problem
 
I tried to install C++ compiler on to Madrake 9.1 using rpm, but the system can't find the c compiler. I think the path is wrong. How do I go about fixing the path or figuring out where the compiler is?
Help!

i have no much idea on mandrake and i use redhat
but since rpm is the same in both i suppose i can help


1. find out where the c compiler is installed. This can be done by using rpm

say ur package is xxx.i386mdk.rpm
then issue command

rpm -q -l xxx

this will give u all the files which belong to that rpm. Find out where is the cc or gcc is installed

after this say it is (mostly will be installed in /usr/bin )
installed in /opt/bin, edit a file gcc.sh in /etc/profile.d

and type the path there

PATH=$PATH:/opt/bin

this will get sourced when a login shell starts -
and if things go right then u will be able to get hold of
gcc in that path !


u can also do a verify if there are some files which are
missing in the installation using


rpm -q -V xxx
