Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

First check if you can run gcc. Just try 'gcc'. You should get something like: 'gcc: No input files'.
If it works run 'export GCC=gcc' and 'export CC=gcc'. If not run 'whereis gcc' and use the path it gives you: 'export GCC=/usr/bin/gcc' and 'export CC=/usr/bin/gcc' (an example). Try the script again. Many configure scripts use GCC or CC environmental variables as location of the compiler (using the viariables you can also add extra option to nearly every compilation, for example optimization, but that's another story).
Huh..I don't get it.
whereis gcc, whereis cc both show nothing. Just gcc:, and cc:
could it be named something else?
I don't have the installation CDs so I can't look there for them.
If I can find them in RPMs, would that work?
Where could I look besides rpmfind.org, they don't have them.
Well then 2.95 is just fine (no?). Really suggest using urpmi to install it though. It's going to alleviate alot of the headache you will get from trying to install 1 package at a time (since you'll meet the dependency queen- gcc).
