Unhappy Don't have internet connection: need to install g++ command to use C++ and start coding

I am a Linux newbie...

I don't have an internet connection, therefore I can't use yum to install g++. What I am looking for is a way to install the compiler g++ on my machine, which runs Fedora12, without using the internet. I am currently using internet access from my school account.

...please help...

You might try getting the RPMs for gcc and all needed dependencies while you're at school, and burn them to a CD/DVD. Then install them at your home computer. This link might help:

Download GCC at school ( Put it on a flash drive or cd, and install it on your offline machine. Of course, you will have to download any dependencies also.

If the computer does not have an internet connection, I assume you installed Fedora using a burned CD/DVD?

If so, check the installation disc(s). I would be shocked if the installation discs did not have a RPM for gcc on them.

I don't use Fedora, so I can't say where those RPMs would be stored or what commands to use for installing from a file. Those answers could be found with some Google searching.
