Beginners Question: Redhat 4 AS EE - I need to install something called gcc-2.96
Posted on 2006-06-23
I am an absolute beginner to Unix/Linux and thus my apologies if this is a very basic question.
I am in the process of installing Oracle software onto a Linux VMWare machine. The OS seems to have gone on okay but I am having trouble installing anything else on top of this.
The problem I have that I cannot seem to find a definate answer for is my Oracle Installer says:
Checking for gcc-2.96 not found
Now, I understand this isn't the latest version but I presume Oracle is only looking for the version that was around at the time of the release.
Please can someone tell me (in laymans terms) how I can install this component easily and as quickly as possible?
