Fedora 13 gcc dependency frustration
 
I have no means of interface with the internet on the machine in question until gcc is available to compile the drivers for my abhorrently incompatible wireless. My router only supports local connection via Ethernet. I have been hunting down dependencies for the past few hours and have come to a dead end.

By my current path
Code:

<could not do simulate: Can't install <filepath>/glibc-2.11.2-3.x86_64.rpm as no transaction >
is giving me trouble

I don't particularly care what version within reason, I just need a list of specific packages and locations to get gcc running without yum or equivalent means of downloading to the machine itself. Alternatively, a solution to my current error looks promising as I think I have all of the compatible packages for this one.

here are the packages on the flash drive I have been using
Code:

the big problem is that fedora and yum use a groupinstall for gcc and all the autotools
{ yum groupinstall "Development Tools" }
IF at all possible string some cat5 cable and use yum

it is possible off line using a second computer and a dvd BUT it will take a very long time ( days and days )

BUT WHY did you not install all of that from the fedora 13 install dvd -- it is on it - that is why it is 3.3 Gig's

I used an install CD. I did not know gcc was not on it, nor did it occur to me that it would be needed to compile the wireless driver so I could use yum. I guess I'll just use one of my last two DVDs and reinstall.

what wireless card is it
make and model

there have been new ones added to the kernel , but a boot option might be needed

have you searched over at "fedoraforum " for wireless ??
http://www.fedoraforum.org/?
without knowing what your card is ... a guess

re: John VV
 
If I recall correctly it is a dell 1397. Broad com has released code from which to compile the driver. The only modification needed is an inclusion of linux/sched.h. Ubuntu 8.10 and 10.10 are the only distros which i have had support it out of the box.

I did my usual:
edit source
make
place .ko where appropriate
blacklist b43 and ssb
remove ssb because it still interferes

This has worked every time i have had to try it. If you know of a better way I would be happy to learn about it.

I tried to get help from LQ before I developed this system and would like to clarify something people couldn't figure out. NO, RPM-FUSION DOES NOT PROVIDE WHAT I NEED HERE.

Edit: My wireless is now working after the install from dvd since gcc was available.
