It's not the rpm I think that is at fault, I can't rpm anything

It's the SuSE 9.0 rpm.

yea i know, justed want to see where it installs the binaries
make sure its gcc-3.3.1-29.i586.rpm, and that you executed the rpm2cpio command as root in the root directory ( / )
you also need binutils and glibc-devel installed

"Make" doesn't seem to exist in SuSE 9 in that it appears to conflict with some of the gcc packages already installed. My distro, via FTP, shows that they are installed but "make" is nowhere to be found.

The reason for this appears to be that the 'make' command is replaced in SuSE with "pkgmake". Type "pkgmake info" for more information.

Here are the switches:

pkgmake extract package
pkgmake compile package
pkgmake install package
pkgmake diff package
pkgmake remove package

Hope this helps. I'm a newbie too.
