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.

I m trying to install the fortran compiler gcc-g77. I downloaded an RPM file; its name is gcc-g77-3.3.5-5.i586.rpm, which of course states the version. I know I must have the corresponding gcc package installed to install g77. Using yast, I can tell version 3.3.5-5.1 of gcc is installed, but when installing the downloaded RPM, yast says it is incompatible with my gcc.
I use Suse 9.3 downloaded from ftp and it does not provide g77.
So, how do I get a compatible version of g77? A google search for "gcc-g77-3.3.5-5.1" (which is the version of my gcc) does not bring up ANYTHING.
pd/ this post is somehow related to another one made in this same forum for an octave installation problem.
A repository is a coherent collection of rpm files put together so that a package management system (like yast) can simply connect to it and download/install all the files necessary to resolve dependencies. You can do a google search involving (repository, rpm, gcc, g77) and probably find a useable repository.
As a side note, I have found rpm files for gcc and gcc-g77, but they are only version 3.3.3
I have been looking for an rpm in repository, in fact, thatīs what I usually do, only this time, the rpm archive of g77 that SEEMS most compatible with my version of gcc (must be exact same version), is actually not compatible (according to YAST). I try to explain that in my first post (thread opener). Sorry if it doesnīt look clear.
So I tried building from source and get the error I mention in my post No. 2.
