I have a RHEL 6 machine, which came with gcc but without g++. The gcc version is 4.4.4 20100726 (this is what I got from gcc --version).

How can I get g++ working? Currently, the shell just returns "command not found".

    It's called gcc-c++ in RedHat. – iamsid Nov 23 '10 at 14:32

You need to install the gcc-c++ package: yum install gcc-c++

    Thank you - but I'm getting "No package gcc-c++ available". What can be the reason? – rursw1 Nov 23 '10 at 14:45
  • Post the results of rpm -qa | grep gcc – iamsid Nov 23 '10 at 15:03
  • @iamsid rpm -qa | grep gc for me gives only these packages: libgcc-4.4.5-6.el6.x86_64, gcc-4.4.5-6.el6.x86_64 – Artem Oboturov Aug 20 '11 at 14:09
  • @ArtemAO If your server is not registered on rhn yum will not work.. You'd have to install the version on your cd. – Mike Aug 20 '11 at 16:43
