The Knoppix livecd has it... not many do other than that.

If you can dl 700 mb of a livecd fast enough, might save you..

http://www.kernel.org/pub/dist/knoppix/

packages.txt lists gcc in the packages.

distcc is a frontend for the compiler, may help.
http://distcc.samba.org/

If this doesn't help pm evilghost, I'm sure he can help you. Good luck.

distcc is only useful if you have distcc servers on the network and configured, and have a working gcc on the systems, not the case here.

I thank you all for your responses. I greatly GREATLY appreciate it.

I am currently downloading the gcc packages through YUM. I hope this will work.

I will contact evilghost if not, as recommended.

Once again, thank you all.

Just found this thread, if you still need help PM me, I can even give you access to my server over SSH and let you compile it there. The Fedora equilivent of "build-essential" is what you need. I can also give you my cell number or IM address if you need further help.

AGH!

I am an IDIOT!

Why didn't I think of a UNIX server?!
I have access to one.. not sure if I have permissions to compile though.

My god evilghost, you are a GENIUS. I am in debt with you, sire.

Will give it a try.

I think I am up and running.

Must finish code in order to see. I think it will all go to hell once I star using the fork() primitive.
Let's hope not.

Thanks again evilghost. I'll let you know how it turns out... or come running to you like a maniac if it blows up.

Project was handed in. Don't think it works properly. I hate C.
