Linux noob writing..
So i have been dealing with remote servers for 2 years now.
I have run many versions of debian and fedora and managed to get everything what i needed to work with my very little knowledge, but today has been confusing.
So i received my server details, loged in via ssh and wanted to install some basic stuff with
-bash: yum: command not found
ok, i know what that might mean, so i downloaded yum from http://yum.baseurl.org/
of course i could not compile it
/bin/sh: line 2: msgmerge: command not found
that made me download gettext, that made me download C compiler (dooh!), i went with gcc, but when i try to compile gcc
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
so i am trying to install c compiler and it asks me for c compiler?
i am confused
other thing is, when i get this done can anyone point me to some tutorial where i can find how to get yum working smooth with sources and stuff.
thanks in advance..
