How do I install GCC and GCC-c++ in SuSE 10.1?

Hi,
I need to install these 2 compilers in order to install a vmware any-any patch for wmware workstation 5.5.2. I also need to know where the kernel-source and make are as the patch will ask for those locations, I think. I am brand new to Linux and struggling to get vmware up and running as a linux host. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Why don't you simply install it over SUSE's YAST ?

YAST --> Software --> Software Management:

Filter: Package groups --> Development --> Language --> C and C++:

In list of packages, select the gcc and gcc c++ and off you go, system will
tell you which source to use and what to do next.

OK. I got the compilers installed. When I run the patch I get the question What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running directory? When I take the default I get the response:  The path /usr/src/linux/include is not an existing directory.

Any idea on how to continue with my compiling this patch?

Sounds a you don't have the kernel source package installed.
You should do this first (same procedure with Yast, only this time
from package groups select - - > Development - - > Sources:
and from the list select: 'kernel-source'.

The kernel source will go into /usr/src/linux

For next steps to consider please see point 22 on this site:
