GCC & Make dependencies
Hey...I'm working on installing a NIC driver in a server at work that hasn't been touched since it got placed in the server room.
To install the driver, you need make (which I don't have).
To install make, you need gcc, or a c compiler (which I don't have).
To install gcc, you need make.

I've downloaded gcc and make, but i can't install either one because it keeps asking for the other one. Any help is appreciated.

You can get around this by specifying more than one RPM at a time with the rpm utility:

rpm -ivh <first-package> <second-package>

If this is a current version of RH then you can use up2date to download and install packages from RHN...I'd guess that it does dependency resolution, but unfortunately I haven't got a RHEL box to check just now.
