Installing GCC for the first time


i'm trying to install GCC on a brand new install of Fedora Core 3 (ultimately so i can compile my video card drivers) and i'm having issues with it. the help files tell me to run ./configure but it fails because i don't have a working compiler (hence installing gcc....)

what gives? what can i do to solve this?

any help is greatly appreciated!

You might want to install the binary RPM's to begin with

- Have a hunt on your local mirror.

Cheers,

Wooaahhh!

Unless I'm missing something here (and I may well be - I'm really only a newbie myself) GCC is installed by default in FC1,2 and 3.

Check to see if it's already there by opening a terminal and typing gcc --version. If you get anything other than an error you have GCC already installed.

If you don't have it installed go back to your FC3 installation CDs / DVD and install it using the menu option whose name I forget for the moment (sorry I'm at work on an XP box at the moment).

Hope that helps

Mark
