Installing GCC


hey friends,

i need help installing gcc to my system. (FC4) (well actually i need help installing most things)

i ran this so far:

Code:
sudo yum install compat-gcc-32
i thought this would install gcc. I run a whereis gcc and i get a directory but no executable gcc. So either its not installed or i can't find where it is to add it to environment variables.

can someone help me?

what exactly are you trying to do? I believe gcc is installed by default with fedora

i thought so too. I'm a c++ programmer who predominantly has (till now) resided in windows. My need to understand the linux filesystem is dire, but some basic things like how would i go about finding gcc if its already installed will just have to come first.

how would YOU go about finding gcc if you thought it was installed?
