compiling without root
For starters, I've only been using linux for about a month...
I have a redhat linux 5 (not sure how to view the exact version number) box that was pre configured and I don't have the root password for it, my problem being the machine has no pre-installed compiler, preventing me from installing MTOOLS to recover it.
Having full access to my /usr/home dir I figured it would be easy enough to install one but I can't seem to get it to work. I've followed the instructions from the thread discussing installing development tools and still can't get it to work. I don't have an installation CD as the machine I recieved came pre-configured. Any help is appreciated.
