Run this

Any ideas?

Thank you

please check what directories are added to PATH (echo $PATH).

From what you posted, gcc is not found either because it is not installed or not in PATH, run below command and see what it returns:

find / -name gcc -exec ls -l {} \;

If you find gcc under a certain dir , then add to PATH:

PATH=$PATH:/path/to/gcc

You may need to reinstall gcc if the installation was not done or had issues.

this did not find any gcc
find / -name gcc -exec ls -l {} \;


When I try to install GCC I get this

 sudo zypper install gcc
Loading repository data...
Reading installed packages...
Resolving package dependencies...

Problem: gcc-4.5-19.1.x86_64 requires gcc45, but this requirement cannot be provided
  uninstallable providers: gcc45-4.5.1_20101208-9.8.i586[opensuse]
                   gcc45-4.5.1_20101208-9.8.x86_64[opensuse]
 Solution 1: downgrade of binutils-2.23.1-0.23.15.x86_64 to binutils-2.21-13.1.x86_64
 Solution 2: do not install gcc-4.5-19.1.x86_64
 Solution 3: do not install gcc-4.5-19.1.x86_64
 Solution 4: break gcc-4.5-19.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/3/4/c] (c):

What should I select?
