yet I do have gcc installed

Code:
[jeremy@OzzyLinux amsn-0.98.1]$ sudo yum install gcc
Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package gcc-4.4.2-7.fc12.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
I think I had this problem before but I just reinstalled to fix it. Any ideas that could be causing this? I tried removing and reinstalling gcc but that didn't seem to resolve it. I'm running Fedora 12.

Thanks,

yum search g++

?



I can't believe it won't pick it up - it's SO commonplace.
What distro is this?

It's running Fedora 12 - I agree, quite perplexing

Are you trying to cross-compile, or is this some funky development
platform?

Try
yum install avr-gcc-c++
if that's the target platform for your aMSN.

I downloaded and installed the avr-gcc-c++ but it still won't compile, same error message.
Strange, it's installed, but it's just not finding it.

Not sure what cross compiling is so I'm going to go with negative for that answer.
As for development platform? Shouldn't be, downloaded it from fedoraproject a few weeks back.

Oh well, if another reinstall is needed no big deal.

Well ... that seems a bit over the top. What does
uname -a
tell you about your system, what does your repository list look like?



Cheers,

1) su

2) yum install gcc-c++ tcl-devel glibc-headers

.. provides the c++ / g++ compiler + required headers
.. and provides the " tcl shell " = 'tclsh'

.....
