Ummm ... RH 4.x didn't have yum. Just use rpm or
I tried up2date, but it isn't installed. Rpm is installed. From what I understand, I need to find an rpm that is compatible with my system, right? Do you know how I can figure out which version of gcc-c++ will work on my system, and how to find the right rpm for it? Sorry to have to ask these basic questions, but I'm a Linux newbie (hence why I'm posting here ). I've tried to do this, but I can't figure it out on my own.
If you have RHEL it should be on your install media. Or you should
be able to use your RHN credentials to download it from the redhat
site directly if the media (w/ remote host and all that) poses to
much of a problem.
I checked with the hosting company, and yum was definitely not installed, nor could it be (or so they said). The good news is that we figured out which version of gcc-c++ would be compatible (version 3.3.2), and located an rpm and got it installed. So it works now!
Thanks again for your help!!! I very much appreciate it, and I'm super happy to have this issue resolved. It really makes me appreciate the newer distributions, that have things like yum.... would have been sooo much easier.
