to see what version of gcc is installed (I'd refer to it as <gcc_version>). Then go over to rpmfind.net and get the following packages libstdc++-<gcc_version> and libgcc-<gcc_version>.
[Randy@localhost Randy]$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/specs
gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-98)
I found libstdc++-2.96-98 on rpmfind.net
I did not find libgcc-2.96-98 on rpmfind.net
does it matter what directory I run the rpm --rebuild gcc-whatever.src.rpm command in. I am assuming the rpm will install the files in the right directories regardless of were I run the command from.
also, If you have the time could you tell me how you knew what rpm packages I needed?? I am trying to learn all I can.
Thank you again for your help.
