YAST2 crashing with gcc rpm! HELP


After I downloaded a compatible .rpm version of gcc 3.3.5 I tried to install it with YAST2 but it it gets to the installation point then the whole window disappears.

I tried installing a source version of gcc but I cannot ./configure it since I don't have any other compiler, so now I'm stuck.

Is there any solution to this prob?

Thanks in advance

Don't try to install with YaST, but from YaST. Go to YaST->Software Management (or Install Remove Programs for SuSE versions earlier than 10) and search for gcc and install from there.

No, j-ray. For rpm still YAST is the tool, since it calls the appropriate config tools in a SuSE. Just do a
yast -i gcc3.3.5.rpm
from the command line as root.

nectron101, you are aware that gcc is now somewhere at gcc 4.x.y, I assume, and you need this version. Uninstall the newer version first like chief_officer suggested.
