Well, I'll fess up to the fact that I'm an idiot at this.

I can't find an executable. I ran "tar xvfz gcc-3.3.1.tar.gz" and it dumped all of the files into the /usr/bin/gcc-3.3.1/ directory, which includes a /gcc-3.3.1/gcc directory, but no gcc executable as far as I can tell.

I've added PATHS to both directories in the blind hope that I'm missing something, and when I run ./configure I still get

checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

This may not be something you can tell, but am I missing some key files? There's a ton of files in the /usr/bin/gcc-3.3.1. and /usr/bin/gcc-3.3.1/gcc, but no gcc executable as far as I can tell.

The best thing to do would be to install a version of gcc from binary rpms first. Also chek around a package may already exist. gcc can boot strap it self to compile, but your into diffcult territory, its not something I'd look forward too.

Ahhh, shit. So basically you're saying I need a compiler to set up the compiler.

Yeah, doesn't sound like fun. Maybe the best thing to do is get my SuSe disks back and run it off the CD.

Thanks for the input.

Try here for suse 3.3 packages

http://sdb.suse.de/en/sdb/html/gcc33_release.html

Hope this helps.
