installing gcc package

im having trouble installing the gcc package from my redhat 7.1 disks. i used package manager to install the package (after spending about 45mins trying to satisfy all the dependancies ) and when it had done it came up with a box saying 'error' and then the gcc package name and version. package manager shows the gcc package as installed but when i try to load it from /usr/bin it doesnt load up.

what am i doing wrong?? and how do i get gcc to work??

Hmm, try this, instead of telling it to install tell it to upgrade the package. Goto the folder on the RedHat CD with gcc in it and type this command gcc -Uvh gcc-xxxxxxx <== insert the right version.

My opinion is to just grab a later RPM. goto RPMfind

and grab the latest version for your specific architecture
