Hi Cameron,
Thanks for your answer.
I'm a end user for FC4. The real problem I have is each time I want try some program from CDs ou DVDs from magazines, they advise to install with './configure' and 'make install'. Is there any other possibility?
TIA, Joao.

Try 'yum install gcc' as root, if you have a decent net connection.
It will tell you how much (and what) it wants to download and install.
You will probably also need various -devel packages.

They shouldn't advise to install with that method for FC4/5. Use yum, rpm, pirut, pup, yumex; they all work with RPMs and yum/frontends work with RPM repositories. Yum will use core, updates and extras by default. The fourth repository I mainly use is livna:
rpm -Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release4.rpm
Then yum will be able to install anything in that repository (packages redhat cannot distribute).
