GCC compiler issues redhat 7.3
I'm a super duper newbie at this so be kind...
I've installed RedHat 7.3 and I'm trying to install a couple other programs. I get to the configure part and it tells me that I don't have a compiler. So I'm hunting for the GCC compiler. I've looked on the RedHat RPM CD and found the GCC source RPM, but it isn't letting me install it (rpm -ivh gcc-2.96-110.src.rpm). I get an error about cannot create %sourcedir /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES. I am logged into root. Is there some other way to install a source rpm? Any other easier ways of getting GCC installed on my system?
