Okay, this might sound a bit ridiculous for experts, but I'm a Windows-Slave, so please have a heart and help and don't just laugh;)

This is my source:

---
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{

    cout << "Hello Glossary" << endl;

    return 0;
}
---

Easy, huh? I type in

> gcc hello.cpp -o hello

and all I get is...

/tmp/ccUgIjOM.o(.text+0x14): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `std::basic_ostream<char, std::char_traits<char> >& std::endl<char, std::char_traits<char> >(std::basic_ostream<char, std::char_traits<char> >&)'
/tmp/ccUgIjOM.o(.text+0x21): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `std::cout'
/tmp/ccUgIjOM.o(.text+0x26): In function `main':

/tmp/ccUgIjOM.o(.text+0x8b): In function `__tcf_0':
: undefined reference to `std::ios_base::Init::~Init [in-charge]()'
/tmp/ccUgIjOM.o(.eh_frame+0x11): undefined reference to `__gxx_personality_v0'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status


What is missing? What do I need to install (keep in mind: I'm just a "Windowser", so speak SuSe RPM with me ;)

With g++ I get

/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-suse-linux/3.3/../../../../i486-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lgcc_s
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Maybe this might be interesting to help solving the problem:

Oki... Finally:

Your (sunnycoder) suggestion solved my problem which lead my to another one, which I meanwhile solved myself.

Means: You get the points ;)

And for everyone else, who might have the "ld: cannot find -lgcc_s" problem:
http://lists.debian.org/debian-gcc/2001/debian-gcc-200106/msg00079.html

The file libgcc_s.so (/usr/lib/ in my system) links to the latest version of the file - or at least it should do so. It pointed to nowhere, so I had do fix the link to point somewhere more useful ;)
