Error trying to install GCC with YUM in RHEL5

Hopefully someone can help me out here. I'm trying to install gcc on a brand new install of RHEL 5 (more specifically Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.5 Beta (Tikanga)) and I'm getting an error I can't figure out

Should I go back to a non-beta release?

 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
 You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
                        package-cleanup --dupes
                        rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
==============================


Any ideas?

Thanks

I've had nothing but issues with the beta testing with RHEL. Go back to stable!

Hi,
   The yum error is that it is not able to find the glibc-2.5-42.el5_4.3 rpm and the cpp-4.1.2-46.el5_4.2 rpm, which is strange. As alienvoice suggested, going back to stable could be a good idea and could save you headaches later.
   However, there is a very good possibility that the Installation media that you used for installing RHEL 5 already has all the packages that you need.
   If that DVD contains the above mentioned glibc and cpp rpm, you can go ahead and install those rpm's manually. Then do a yum install for gcc (or again install it from the DVD).
   See if that works for you or not.
