GCC not installed by default in SUSE 10.1?


Hey there

I've not used linux before - please bare with me! I'm pretty ignorant

While trying to set up my modem (speedtouch) on SUSE 10.1 using the script from sourceforge.net, I got an error saying I needed to install gcc. I tried using yast, which kept asking me to insert the suse disk 2, even when it was already inserted. So I looked online and found the GCC rpm (here) and downloaded it. There are a load of 'required' packages which I assumed I needed too. I've been unable to download one of them - the libgcc file for my version of SUSE. Would it be okay to use an older one?! (for 10.0).

Or is there a better way of going about installing GCC? (I don't have an internet connection in linux , obviously).

Thanks for any advice. I really don't know a huge amount and so am muddling my way through here, but I'm willing to persist with stuff so long as I know I'm going in the right direction.

Cheers

Xenny

Hmmmmmmm... I would say the best way would be to use the CD or an online repo.. but if you don't have internet or disks.. the best way would be to find what dependencies it had.. download gcc and all depenencies then be done with it..

Gcc isn't installed by default if I can remember correctly.

You need to install it manually with YAST/ZEN/RUG/SMART.
- Use the cds/DVD
or
- add a internet installation source and use it

Please dont use older gcc version, suse 10.1. has been compiled with gcc4.1 and suse 10 uses gcc4.0
