Problem installing GCC with mandrake


Hi, I have mandrake 9.0 and I used that install utility that is a part of the control center to install GCC 3.2 and the packages it requires and it seems like everything went okay, it said "installation successful" and I can find parts of GCC of my HD but I'm having problems. First, I can't find GCC in my list of applications on the Linux equavalent to the windows start menu. Second, I have found parts of GCC on my hard drive, but I have no idea how to get it to run. How do I get it on my appliactions menu and how do I get it to load up? I'm sure this is a super newbie question but hey, that's what I am. Any help is much appreciated, thank you for your time.

Well GCC is a compiler, it has no graphical front-ends except IDE (intergrated devolpment environment applications - separate applications that use gcc to compile your own code), to check that gcc is working is to compile a simple C, C++, etc code. As for verifying the version of gcc installed run in console
gcc -v

I was wondering, can you suggest any good IDE programs where I could use GCC? See I would test C or C++ code in there, but I don't even know where I would begin to enter it in or anything. When I had redhat 7.3, I could just load up GCC and type in code and it worked fine, but I have no idea what the "IDE" was or anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for your time.

Anjuta is one commonly used, but if you search you will find a load of them.
