No GCC found, no cc found

I am new to Linux. I Installed Red Hat Linux 8.0 on my Intel Celron System. The installation seemed fine. I wanted to write a few c programs to test. But when giving the 'cc' command i was giving the erro message as no cc found.

Please help me out. I am also trying to install PPPoE, which also is asking for GCC and CC.

It looks that gcc is simply not installed in your system. It is on your installation cd, so you can easily install it. Use redhat-config-packages program to do this.

Before augmenting RedHat 8, you may want to consider a more current distro. If you like Redhat, the try Fedora.

Execute the command locate cc. If it returns the path of the cc then the compiler is already installed and all you have to do is to add the path of the cc in your PATH environment variable. If locate command doesn't return anything then it means the compiler is not yet installed and you can download it & install it or you can install it from the installation CD itself.
