More disappointment with Suse 8.0

[ #4579 ]
Last night I discovered that Suse 8.0 Personal edition does not come with a C compiler! A "which cc" followed by a root-level find revealed nothing. I check the 3 CD's to see if there's a package somewhere - nope.

So, uh, anyone know where I can get a copy of cc for Suse Linux 8.0?

  • ... did you try which gcc? And maybe even egcs? This may be a little akin to asking if the machine is plugged in. But sometimes you check and you find out it isn't. :)

    • Yeah, I tried a 'which gcc'. I didn't try 'egcs', though I'll admit I've never heard of it. Assuming that it's not there, what do I do then?
      • Look around on the net for a binary gcc that'll work with SUSE. (Maybe one for another distro will work, if you can extract it from the package and get the right libraries.) Once you get one, get the gcc source and bootstrap compile your own so you know for sure it'll work with your setup.

        A good place to look for a binary might be the official gcc site, but your mileage will vary.

        You can use any gcc that'll run for bootstrapping, but the source tarball you want to compile will probably be 2.95. 2.96

  • Sorry this is a bit late, but I've been moving to a new apartment closer to work, and been busy. Checking suse's website, under package lists for personal edition, I found this [www.suse.de]. It seems weird it was not installed by default.
    • Odd, I don't seem to recall ever being given an option to install it during the initial installation, nor was there an option to add it as a package after the fact.

      Perhaps I was dozing. Ah, well. I'm using Mandrake 8.2 until it irrates me enough. I've still got Suse laying around if I ever want it.
