Why don't you do a yum install gcc from the console instead by this way ?

You can't access Internet well ?

If you specify the.rpm extension too you can make things more difficult than they are

I have Always used only the livna repos,they're better than others,don't make you run in deps conflicts and problems and are very big so at the end you could back up and uninstall yours,install livna ones and try again to see if you can resolve this.

I think Fedora uses GNU gcc version 4 or higher. Use uname to figure out what GNU gcc version the kernel is compiled with. A GNU gcc version 2.95 is known to be stable, but rarely people are using it. Majority are using GNU gcc version 4 or higher.

I saw yum so thought it was Fedora..anyway,try this way:

1)run your packet manager
2)update everything from there-otherwise,you could do a yum update by the console-it's so in Fedora
3)look for gcc 3.3 or 3.4 or 4.1
4)install the latest you find by here;it should resolve dependances by itself-and so would be for cap
5)update everything again

I hope it works ! in Fedora it would of course work so !

Bye and good luck !
