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.

first of all... if you have macos X, then install the developer tools and you will have a C++ compiler... second, install the fink package manager and you will have an apt-get package manager... macos X , especially panther has X11 as well although you might have to download that
Thank you for the advice. The reason I'm installing another C++ compiler as well as a Fortran compiler is that I'm working on a project with other people and we would like to use the same compiler. I will try using the apt-get manager to get the rpm progamr though? I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks again.
So, I found my real problem. I do have rpm installed, version 4.0.2. However, I need 4.0.3 for the compilers to be installed properly. Could someone give me some steps on doing this? I went to rpmfind.net, but I'm just lost.
I am both posting and emailing you this reply since this post is rather old and you haven't posted since and I suspect you don't check this forum anymore (not to mention the fact that I don't check this forum either. if you want to reply reply by email.)
It's also very possible you have since learned everything I'm about to tell you.
Here's the deal... the Intel compiler won't work on Mac OS X. The Intel compiler of course targets Intel's processors, ie the x86. Mac OS X runs on Apple's hardware, which uses the PowerPC processor. In other words, it just ain't gonna happen.
But here's the thing... you shouldn't be too disappointed about that. Why tie your project to a single compiler? Using and testing your project with multiple compilers helps to ensure that you are using standard, portable code. If you used the Intel compiler and got your build process and everything tied to that one compiler... well that means your project won't ever run anywhere that the Intel compiler doesn't target!
