gcc is included in the SUSE distribution. Go into YaST (or YaST2) and go to Software Selection and find gcc - put a plus sign (+) in front of its entry and then Accept the change. Should load it from the install media.

Hi, bryanchellen,

As PsiCop said go into YAST and select GGC or tick the development tools and let SuSE install and configure it all for you.
