I am used to working on Ubuntu and am trying to get something going on a machine that is running Redhat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.4.
I want to do something that seems like it should be pretty simple - I just want to install gcc.
I started going to rpm route. Please forgive me - I am totally new to rpms. First I tried downloading an rpm file. I searched on this site:
And I wasn't sure which one to pick.
When I tried installing it I got a message that there are a bunch of dependencies I don't have. I feel like I am making this way harder than it needs to be. Is there an easy way to install gcc?
