Thumbs up gcc upgraded but not showing

I use RH9.0 and have upgraded my gcc from the given gcc along with it more than an year back.
I am trying to install an rpm,and it gave a "Failed Dependencies because of gcc.

[root@localhost root]# rpm -ivh gnofract4d-python22-3.0-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
gcc >= 2.95 is needed by gnofract4d-3.0-1

Let me know what I can do to help this rpm recognise my latest gcc

thanks in advance,

RH9 shipped with gcc 3.2 so the version of gcc shouldn't be a problem. What does rpm -q gcc show?

If you compiled a new gcc (or anything) from source or installed it via any means other than RPM, then the RPM database won't know about it.
