For a project I have to run Redhat 9 as a virtual machine (I'm using VirtualBox). I also need to be able to write and run programs on it, so I need to be able to compile and run a C program. I know that in usr/bin I have gcc269, however when I attempt to compile a simple hello world program I am told that the gcc command does not exist. I am not particularly experienced with Linux, and the only compilers I have used have already been installed on the OS (mac basically), as such I don't know how to install a compiler by just downloading the tar ball. Basically, how do I install or get a gcc compiler working so I can run C programs on Redhat 9?
