yum install for gcc-c++ doesn't work


I'm trying to get g++ installed on my FC4 box using yum, but for some reason, I'm not making any progress:

Code:
[root@localhost mythtv]# yum install gcc-c++
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
Parsing package install arguments
No Match for argument: gcc-c++
Nothing to do
Any ideas on what might be wrong?

I try to get info on it:

Code:
[root@localhost mythtv]# yum info gcc-c++
Setting up repositories
atrpms                    100% |=========================|  951 B    00:00
Reading repository metadata in from local files
And search:

Code:
[root@localhost mythtv]# yum search gcc-c++
Searching Packages:
Setting up repositories
Reading repository metadata in from local files
No Matches found
But no luck.

I finally gave up on yum and just used apt-get:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install gcc-c++
