Installing GCC for Linux (Fedora Core 6)

Phew! Here are the steps for installing the GNU C Compiler (GCC) for Linux in Fedora Core 6 .


Download the following files :

  • libgomp-4.1.1-30.i386.rpm

  • glibc-headers-2.5-3.i386.rpm

  • glibc-devel-2.5-3.i386.rpm

  • gcc-4.1.1-30.i386.rpm

You can get the above files by searching for the above files on
Install the rpm's , open the console :

[.....]# rpm -Uvh libgomp-4.1.1-30.i386.rpm
[.....]# rpm -Uvh glibc-headers-2.5-3.i386.rpm
[.....]# rpm -Uvh glibc-devel-2.5-3.i386.rpm
[.....]# rpm -Uvh gcc-4.1.1-30.i386.rpm

Finished Installation

Confirm your installation by doing a man gcc
It should be done ....

Be free...Linux.

heh heh...this is why I use Debian. In Debian to install gcc all you have to do is

#apt-get install gcc


Perhaps a better way to check for a program would be the which command. For eg.

$which gcc
output should be some valid path like /usr/bin/gcc
The which command is used to locate a command(refer man)

If possible,add debian based tutorials too as debian based linux is getting more common than rpm...

i know much powerful element in fedora core than another versions of linux,i think this is not a good judgement when we discuse about which version has less work than another, we have to focus on which has better spite of this i prefer Windos Xp.

I already installed gcc & cc. When I run find -name gcc return nothing. What does it mean?
