Hulo All, Linux newb here. I just ssh'ed into my first shiny new CentOS virtual server to install a LAMP stack. No yum, so I had to install yum. Yum needs gettext, so it got gettext. Gettext ./configure fails because gcc's not installed. All the directions I've found so far indicate that I should use yum to install GCC. Am I missing something here?
Apparently I got what I paid for when I asked for the minimal service. What's the approach here for getting things on track so that I can follow basic LAMP installation instructions?
Links to web pages are gladly accepted.
cat /etc/issue replies:
CentOS release 5.3 (Final)
Kernel \r on an \m
But this site says that my VServer can't be CentOS if yum is missing. It might be a Plesk VServer.
