i just installed the latest version of gcc and make via rpm yesterday. I am running Suse 9.0 pro and in order to instal my video card drivers i need to install the kernel source. i found the source for my version but when i try to install via rpm it says not to install because there is no c_compiler.

no c_compiler

Check to see that you have glibc installed as welll, this is important for the gcc compiler. If not, try a site like this one , and navigate to the the appropriate directories for your distro and architecture. There should be an rpm in there somewhere.

Hope this helps.
