from "man gcc":
.
LIBDIR/cpp         preprocessor
.
LIBDIR is usually /usr/local/lib/machine/version.


So it seems like you have somehow lost your copy of cpp. Try
`locate cpp|grep lib`, if you find it somewhere put the path
to your /etc/ld.so.conf and run `ldconfig -v`.
(Or you could re-install gcc.....)

it didnt find cpp, so i reinstalled gcc (or tried to at least) and now it will compile a c file  no problem but when i tried a simple c++ file (that just printed some text) i got this:

In file included from /usr/include/g++/iostream.h:31,
                 from test.cc:1:
/usr/include/g++/streambuf.h:403: warning: invalid type `void *' for default argument to `ios *'
In file included from test.cc:1:
/usr/include/g++/iostream.h:50: warning: invalid type `void *' for default argument to `ostream *'
/usr/include/g++/iostream.h:123: warning: invalid type `void *' for default argument to `ostream *'
/usr/include/g++/iostream.h:230: warning: invalid type `void *' for default argument to `ostream *'
/tmp/cca011651.o: In function `main':
/tmp/cca011651.o(.text+0x9): undefined reference to `cout'
/tmp/cca011651.o(.text+0xe): undefined reference to `ostream::operator<<(char const *)'  

so now what?

It seems like you don´t have libraries around or you didn´t
include them properly....
Did you compile it with g++? (g++ test.cc) If not it sure
will do something like that.
Try with g++ and if got no luck throw the code here.
