Looking for C++ compiler... none found!

Looking for C++ compiler... none found = that pretty much says it all!!!

I installed Debian woody 3.0r1 4 days ago and I really like it, apt-get spoils you and getting a minimum install was just great (except this problem ) I initially had troubles with everything... x didnt like my gforce4 ti4280, sound support was there, debian even figured out which driver i needed for my sound card but it didnt install it (?) my mouse didnt work and getting swedish keyboard support wasnt the easiest BUT everything do now more or less work !!! It took its share of googling, yanking my old gpu in and out and so forth, fiddling with kernel-headers but I finally got to play enemy terriotory again, which probably is enough for my computer needs...
Now after this rant about how proud I am not beeing so much of a newbie I once was:
since apt-get cant make me breakfast for ever and no one survives without a compiler...
I installed gcc 3.0 (also required by the nvidia drivers, well you know that!).

I really hated my old gcc version... 2.96... redhat... couldnt compile most of the stuff i wanted because of this lousy thing so WOW 3.0 YEAH!!!
Running ScummVM configure... (yep, its time for Beneath the steel sky)
Looking for C++ compiler... none found!

gcc is in my path and google didnt give me anything, neither did LQ.

Cheers, Klod

gcc 3.0

if you do
apt-get install gcc-3.0-base
what does it say?

i've upgraded to unstable and when i type
gcc --version
it tells me i'm using 3.3.2
how 'bout you?

you might want to dist-upgrade........

Hibedihub? I already got the base package so I went ahead getting the g++ package and that sorted everything, however it now says im using 2.95... which is fine I guess, but why is it not using 3.0?
$gcc -dumpversion
gcc 2.95.4

Penguin_warrior, I just might upgrade to unstable (thats sid, right?) but chanses are im trying out gentoo soon. My harddrive has just started to sound funny (its pretty old...) so a new will probably host a few distros!!!

Anyway Thanks for your help!!!

Cheers, Klod
