What distribution do you use? Try
locate gcc | egrep gcc$
and post result. Seems like you need installing gcc.

I'm starting to feel noob :S
=========
linux:~/BitchX # locate gcc | egrep gcc$
bash: locate: command not found
linux:~/BitchX # locate gcc
bash: locate: command not found
linux:~/BitchX # egrep gcc$
===============

SuSE 10.0

Thats what i'm using

Well, try running gcc. I guess it'll not be found. So install gcc from installation CD (or download from Internet). I've never used SuSE, so I cannot give advice on YaST.

I allready did that.. it gave me some sort of devel-2 is needed but he didnt wanne install that, so i tried downloading it and installing that also.. but still same problem.. :S

Then ask a new question in SuSE distribution forum with detailed description of the problem when installing gcc.
