comment CentOS 5.5 network problem
I have installed the rpm file I found in this directory. (if you search "kernel" in that page, you could easily find it.) The new kernels that show up at boot time are 2.6.18-194.el15 and 2.6.18-194.el15PAE. (neither of them work) But actually kernel I have installed is of version 2.6.18-294. Also, that rpm file was an SRPM, it if matters..

CentOS-5.7 is last one in the CentOS-5 series. I shall install it's kernel and see if that solves the problem.

@RenanBirckPinheiro centos-5.5 is the most preferred OS for us. I need to check if there are alternatives to make the network work before giving up!

CentOS-5.5 is the most preferred OS for us. I am not sure but, does installing driver for that particular network card solve the problem? I am ready to take a beating before giving up!

comment Installing GCC 4.5 on Fedora 16
the messed up part is that LD_LIBRARY_PATH only has a single directory which I am sure does not have any gcc libraries.

comment Installing GCC 4.5 on Fedora 16
after installation, I used update-alternatives to use the newly installed gcc and g++. How could I also update the libraries similarly? It seems like my program is still using the libraries of the previously installed gcc. And it seems like toolchain was built without thread support. I am also going to use threads. – Vamsi 1 min ago edit
