Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Originally posted by tgflynn Uh RPM's are binary packages. Either you're thinking of SRPM's or I'm completely missing your point.
Everytime I unpacked an RPM, I would see where it triggered GCC. That's most of why I thought that RPM's need a compiler. If you can get a binary RPM though, GO FOR IT! I think those usually have a bin somewhere in the name (IE: riodriversbin.rpm or something). ...of course, if I'm just killing my own dumb self here, take my gun away.
I get the same error " no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH" and I've found places to download GCC but they're all in "tar.gz" format. Is there no-where one can find a rpm maybe, wouldn't that help in this type of situation?
gtk, xml and xml2 are installed, but still Iget these messages:

*** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
*** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
