Description treuhaft 1999-01-17 02:24:58 UTC
/usr/bin/gcc (from gcc- knows to invoke cc1plus
when compiling C++ source files (namely, files that end in
".cc").  However, cc1plus is not included in this RPM, with
the result that "gcc main.cc" responds with

	gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `cc1plus': No such
file or directory

I can compile successfully with "g++ main.cc", but the
behavior and installation of /usr/bin/gcc are, by all
rational standards, broken.

gcc is supplied with Red Hat 5.2 mainly for the purposes of
building 2.0.x kernels. C++ development should use egcs for
C++, and programs that mix CC and C++ code should use egcs
