I want to install gcc in RHEL 6.3, but it has cpp dependencies.
So I go to cpp rpm download page, but it has no rpm for 6.3 version:
enter image description here

Is there any other way to install cpp in RHEL 6.3?

yum install cpp. – jordanm Mar 31 '13 at 4:01
@jordanm, "no package cpp available, Error: nothing to do" – Rubby Mar 31 '13 at 4:26
8-| You can either pay for RHEL and all the support, or use CentOS/SciLinux... That's as simple as it gets. – Deer Hunter Mar 31 '13 at 13:05
By the way, the 'cpp' package you're seeing for "Red Hat Linux 6.2" refers to a something completely different than Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Red Hat Linux 6.2 was released in the year 2000. – jsbillings Apr 1 '13 at 0:08
Seems you would have started with yum install gcc and let yum resolve the dependencies, which would automatically install cpp and the other required packages if you have access to the repos. – ZaSter Apr 16 '13 at 23:07
