help installing gcc


I have just installed Mandrake 9.1, and don't remember if I installed the development packages when I initially installed the operating system. I installed C and C++ compilers using the control panel, I think it is called rgpm. But once I installed it I don't know where to go from there. How do I check where it is installed, and how to use it. I need it install other software, called gd library. When I try to install that software it cannot find any c compiler. Do I need to fix the path name?

Try
> which gcc

If it doesn't find gcc then you have path problem.

$ which gcc

/usr/bin/which: no gcc in /usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/oracle/bin:/opt/oracle/product/9.2.0/bin)

You may install gcc in couple of ways.
1. use RPM to install packages, just download (or use CD) and install...
2. use binary archive of precompiled gcc for your system, information about those can be found here.

Hm, maybe it is installed in different directories than your $PATH... /opt?

Since RH9 is end of life and you can no longer use UP2DATE I would suggest installing apt-get.

Once you have that up and running (I'm assuming the box has an internet connection since you want to run an ftp) simply type

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install proftpd

It will install any packages you to solve dependency issues.

It could help you if your using RH9, as its stopping being supported.

You can just directly install the latest GCC by typing:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install gcc

W: There are multiple versions of "httpd" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
option in your configuration file:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated { "^httpd$"; };

To disable these warnings completely set:

RPM::Allow-Duplicated-Warning "false";

W: There are multiple versions of "libpcap" in your system.

This package won't be cleanly updated, unless you leave
only one version. To leave multiple versions installed,
you may remove that warning by setting the following
