You could always remove the package and try reinstalling it? Or force an upgrade:
Code:
rpm -U gcc-xxx-xxx.rpm
Where xxx is the filename of the package from the redhat CD.

This is a bit off at a tangent, but... if it helps ease your frustration any, you know that there is a RH9 package (rpm) for licq don't you?

http://www.licq.org/download.html
you just need the one called licq-1.2.7.i386.rpm (4th link on page; 1st link in RPM section)

and if gcc isn't working it's clearly not installed properly. If I was you I'd fire up the package manager, and then select all the development packages (I can hear people cocking their flamethrowers as I say this ) - but if you don't know that much about linux, you might find it easier to have a full complement of development language compilers installed for when you need to install things from source. (otherwise your next post will be 'what's fortran77 and why do I need it????' hehe )

I agree totally. When I started with linux I just said "yes" to the whole kit and kaboodle of devel packages because I didn't know what I would need.

Now I'm able to select just those that I know will be used.

And I'm still waiting to be surprised by a program that needs Fortran 77
