FC4, gcc/g++ dependencies problems
I'm new here, and I'm new to linux. Unfortunatly/luckily I've had my brother helping me earlier in my linux-career, but now he's far away from me, and I have a problem.
I've googled, I've searched these forums, I've looked hither and dither, but I can't quite find the information I need. (Though I've seen similar problems been posted.)
The thing is that I wanted to install an xmms plugin - but to do that I of course had to make my tar.gz2 into the real thing. Well, normally, I don't have any problems doing that. I got an error saying something about C++ failing the sanity check, I googled and saw that that probably meant that I didn't have g++ installed.
So, I went looking for some g++.rpm to install. The install packages-prog then told me I missed some packages - and some more googling lead me to believe that I should install gcc first. Well.. I tried that, but gcc wanted cpp and binutils.
The problem comes here: when I downloaded and wanted to install these packages - the system told me that I already have them.. Now googling didn't help me much anymore - and I turn to this forum for some help!
What do I do? How do I make the system realize that it doesn't make sense to tell me that I don't have them installed one minute, and then tell me I do have them installed the next?
Please keep it in .. plain text. I do know some of the things you should know in linux, but I've only had it installed for a month - and I'm still very.. newbie.
Thank you in advance.
