GCC 3.4.2 on SuSE 9.1


Hi everyone,

I am trying to install gcc3.4.2 because it is required by another applications.

When I try to run the "configure" script, however, it tells me that I need an environment variable for a C compiler (which is exactly what I am trying to install...). What am I doing wrong??? Must I have a previous version installed?

There's no gcc in /usr/bin?

as suse 9.0 comes with gcc 3.3.1-24 - suse 9.1 will certainly offer a newer version of gcc anyway. take a look at yast -> software and type gcc into the search box and install that first.

To add on to this, it seems strange at first, but you need a C compiler to compile gcc. If you don't have one currently installed, you'll need to install from binaries as specified above.

I had already done that, but on the software search at YAST all I get is a libgcc, not the compiler itself

u can modify the search function in yast->
selections->C- and C++ Compiler and tools
it should be there but if i type gcc into the search box it shows up, too. so i dont know whether or not your distro is simply incomplete...
good luck
j.

The personal edition of SuSE 9.1 doesn't come with gcc.
You'll have to install it from ftp in Yast.

Can you give me an alternative FTP to download gcc from? I can't connect to the default one because "too many users in my class" are online

This distro almost feels like a demo version

i believe using apt-get for suse you can upgrade to pro.
