Question Unable to install GCC ????????


Ok, I,ve got RHEL 5 and I am unfamiliar with it.After some peeking i tried to install wine on it. But got an error that " NO ACCEPTEBLE C COMPILER FOUND IN $PATH ". Now I stuck in installing gcc.I,ve downloaded gcc-4.4.0.tar.bz2.After unziping and running the command " ../gcc-4.4.0/configure --prefix=/opt/gcc4.4.0 "
it shows "configure: error: NO ACCEPTEBLE C COMPILER FOUND IN $PATH ". Now what i am supposed to do ? :
[ In the package manager on searching gcc it shows libgcc-4.4.1-52.e15.i386, libgcj - 4.1.1-52.e15.i386 and libstdc++ - 4.1.1-52.e15.i386.]
Please help me to get out of this.

Either switch to Centos (the free clone of RHEL) or use the Centos repos. After you have the Centos repos set up, yum install gcc.

If you have got rpm package for it then you can install it with rpm -ivh <packagename>.rpm.
But most of people would suggest that even if you can not move out of RHEL5, you can enable the repositories for CentOS 5 on your system so that you can use yum to install packages.

Where did you install gcc? Is that directory in your $PATH environment variable. You need to edit it to get the path correct.
