Compiling C programs in Fedora Core 2


Hello,

I recently installed Fedora Core 2. I am unable to compile C programs.

Basically, I want to compile the Lex output files (which is lex.yy.c). So that I am able to do my programming with Lex.

Please help.

Cheers,

you should be able to go grab an rpm for gcc and then you will be able to compile C programs.

hello there,

firstly, thanx for replying!

I went to the Add/remove Applications of FC 2. But, still the problem persists. If you mean something else than grabbing an rpm. Please, it would be great if you explain it.

cheers,

Pull up a terminal and execute gcc -v. If you get a version number then the C compiler is properly installed. If you don't then somewhere in there, the rpm failed to proplery install itself.
