*** Please downgrade/upgrade C compiler to version gcc-2.95.x or

You are not using a supported compiler. We do not have the time to
make sure
everything works with compilers other than the ones we use. Use
either the
same compiler as we do, or use --disable-gcc-checking but DO *NOT*
REPORT BUGS
unless you can reproduce them after recompiling with a 2.95.x or 3.x
version!

Note for gcc 2.96 users: Some versions of this compiler are known to
miscompile
mplayer and lame (which is used for mencoder). If you get compile
errors,
first upgrade to the latest 2.96 release (minimum 2.96-85) and try
again.
If the problem still exists, try with gcc 3.x (or 2.95.x) *BEFORE*
reporting
bugs!

GCC 2.96 IS NOT AND WILL NOT BE SUPPORTED BY US !

I don't think you installed gcc. In RedHat 8 the compiler is gcc version 3.2 which according to your errors should be fine.

run "gcc -dumpversion" and that will tell which gcc you have. Perhaps you didn't install gcc, look for it on your install disks rather than downloading...should be easier/faster

it has not been installed. when i try to install it with package management i get a error that says package not found krb5-libs = 1.2.5-6 is required by krb5-devel. that happens when i try to install the development tools i looked for krb5 package everywhere in the package management but i cant find it anywhere.

Yup, that's RPM for you. gcc requires quite a few things as I recall, and each dependancy may have it's own dependencies until you work backwards so far you don't remember what you were trying to install in the first place.

This is bunk windows advice, I know, but if your install is reasonably fresh it may be easier to reinstall, and include the development tools (gcc,glibc, a thousand others...). If you set /home as a seperate partition then you can leave it, and only format your other partions. Otherwise you can backup your /home directory to a CDR, or unused partion, and drop it into your new install, thus keeping your personal files and settings intact (create the same username/password as you have now).

Of course you can just try to work through the dependencies, but it may take a while...

Installing

I'm having the exact same problem, except I can't get to the "Nevermind, thanks" stage. I try to install GCC and get the 'unlocatable package' error for krb5-libs. I download and try to install that and I get a message saying it's already installed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
