    Here is my error. I saw someone corrected this with yum gcc, but I can't get to the internet on the linux machine. So How do I fix that>

      I'm new to Linux and getting same error - missing gcc.

      So how do you install it from yum please ?

      I struggled with the exact same error message until I realised that I didn't have gcc installed. It is normally part of the distribution so can be installed using the same utility - for example YUM in FC3 or YaST in Suse. Once you have gcc installed you shouldn't get those errors.
