    Most distributions do not come with build tools by default. You need to install them with Mandriva's package manager.

    Apparently mandriva packages are .rpm files. It looks to me from their website like "powerpack" is a paid item that includes support, so you should contact them and ask for instructions on where to get the .rpm file and how to install it.

    Also, there is a mandriva forum at LinuxQuestions:
    Mandriva - LinuxQuestions.org
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge

    You need to open a terminal (In KDE it's called Konsol), and type that command in.
    Also, 'gcc' is just GCC, if you want C++ support too, download the 'gcc-c++' package.
