Re: [linrad] linrad installation problem

Did you download the gcc source or a binary?

Look for Suse's (I think I remember that right) package management
system.  They should have a way for you to add the gcc package to your
system.  Since I have not used SuSe I don't know their system.

Time to start looking at making my bootable CD again.  My CD-R does not do
CD-RW so after making 10 test CDs I stopped....

							Later, JOSH
