I am running Red Hat 5.1. I wrote some code in C++ but when i went to compile it, it said it couldn't find the header files. I checked to see if i had installed them and I did. But the header files are nowhere to be found. Also, when I ran gcc it said it couldnt fing cc1plus. That is also supposed to beinstalled but again its nowhere to be found. any ideas?

All header files or just C++ header files?
Did you compile with g++ rather than gcc?
Try "rpm -V glibc-devel libstdc++-devel gcc egcs-c++"

Just the C++ header files are missing. I was able to compile it with g++ but I like gcc better. And I typed in that rpm command line. And nothing happened. I tried unintsalling and reinstalling but that did not work either. any more ideas?

Well, everything is okay then.
Disappointing as it may seem, while you may like gcc better,
g++ is the command to compile C++ programs with. The difference
is in flags. For example, g++ runs the compiler stage with -I/usr/include/g++ (that's where your C++ headers are),
and the linker stage with -lstdc++.
