Hi everyone !!!!

I am trying to install gcc compiler for my o.s. redhat 5

for this i entered following command:

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -Uvh gcc-3.4.3-3.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
cpp = 5:3.4.3-3 is needed by gcc-3.4.3-3.i386
libgcc = 5:3.4.3-3 is needed by gcc-3.4.3-3.i386

Do you mean redhat 5 or rhel5? The former is way old

Anyway assuming the latter, try

yum install gcc

This should fix the dependencies

Two questions

What is in /etc/yum.repos.d ?

and

Do you use the GUI or only command line? If you use the GUI, try using the package manager to install GCC

All you need should be on you installation discs I'd assume
