I see what you're saying, but when I use rpm -q to see what versions I've
got, it's glibc-2.1.92-14 and gcc-2.96-54. Should I still try using
gcc- ? Do you mean, as the compiler, or as the thing to be
compiled? Clear as mud, I'm sure.

Thanks for replying so swiftly, are you in the USA? I won't be able to
return the favour as it's 3:30am here. Yawn. See ya in a few hours...
