cc:Language Optional Software Package not Installed on solaris

I just fresh installed Solaris and am having trouble with
running cc:

When I try it, it sais:
/usr/ucb/cc:  language optional software package not installed    


Now I installed lots of different packages already. However,
in the man page it sais, that cc is part of the SPROcc package, which is located in SUNWspro.

However, on the installation CD I don't see neither one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, since I am stuck,
because I can't compile anything.

Thanks.
Brag.

Look to see if there is cc in /opt/SUNWspro/bin.
You can test it by running %/opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc
If there is one, make sure /opt/SUNWspro/bin is in your path
and that it is added before /usr/ucb (In fact, keep it first
in the path list)....or try hiding /usr/ucb/cc by renaming it as
/usr/ucb/cc.original

If there is no cc in /opt/SUNWspro/bin
    1) Purchase and install the Solaris C Compiler package.
    2) Get gcc !!

Good luck,
Jayesh

Try compiling a very small program (hello world type)
and see if it succeeds. Use the following syntax:

gcc -o <outputfilename> <inputCprogram>

then run the <outputfilename>

Also how did you install the gcc?

Thank you Jayesh.

I have downloaded from www.burn.com.The file name is
FSFgcc.gz.

After that I uncompressed that file using gunzip -d <file> .(it gives FSFgcc) .Then used pkgadd -d FSFgcc.
---------------------------------------------------------------
I compiled  this program: gcc -o x.out x.c

/* x.c     */
#include <stdio.h>
main()
{
printf("hi");
}

gcc: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected

What hardware platform are you running things on?
Are you sure you got the gcc binaries for the right processor?

Try visiting the following site and choose the
correct platform and OS (sparc/intel   solaris2.5/2.6)
smc.vnet.net (I have nothing to do with them....standard
disclaimer...your own risk..etc etc)
Get the latest gcc and they also have comments and some
instructions on gcc....

good luck,
Jayesh
