Installed GCC, but not working


I am using featherlinux, which is knoppix remaster.

First I was facing problems regarding cyclic dependency in debian packages related to GCC. With the help of this forum I was able to install GCC 3.5 successfully, there was no error while installing with dpkg. I installed more than 34 packages in total.

But now when I try to invoke gcc it says command not found. In fact there is no gcc executable on my system. I tried to compile a Hello World program with g++-3.5 but it stops at the error message

linux/limits.h file or directory does not exists

Do I need to install some other packages for that ? Which one ?

Hi there.

Let's *bumb* this accidentally up ;)

""" ... I was able to install GCC 3.5 ... """

I think the latest stable!! release of GCC is 3.4.3

Of course you need the executable binaries in /usr/bin and sometimes even somewhere in /etc/x, where x could be alternatives or so... don't know about Debian?! So, I'd say you need to reinstall the compiler-package from

My 2c, x86h ;)
