Thnks for the rpm. I cud upgrade the RPM properly.

This still does not work. Actually there looks to be some
dependancies associated with gcc. In order to satisfy those
dependancies, I was asked to upgrade/install
binutils, cpp, and glibc packages, which again gave me some more
dependancy problems.

I think rather than upgrading/installing separate packages, I
might be better off with upgrading entire installation. I have
the PCQ CDs with me. Will this be a good idea? I can't afford to
remove the current installation, mainly becoz there're no means
to back-up the current data.
