    slackware is NOT an beginner distro; I suggest using an more popular distro if you do not know what you are doing.

    Learn to use Google and you might be able to learn enough to use slackware.

    By default Slackware will/should already have gcc all set up to go. if the command "gcc -v" does not get you version info, then you need to check your PATH environment variable. /usr/bin is where it should be.

    Most distros use either yum/rpm (redhat derived) or apt/dpkg (debian derived) to manage binary packages. Slackware apparently doesn't. Probably if you ask here about how to install software:

    Slackware - LinuxQuestions.org

    You'll get a few quick replies.
    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

    I used to use Slackware a long time ago. They never used any package management software then, and don't know, AFAIK. I used to just download the source and check the README or INSTALL files. Usually, it's the old classic
    ./configure
    make
    make install (this one usually must be done as root)

    And be prepared to run into dependency hell.

    I haven't used slackware in a long time either but I thought they did in fact have a package manager, it just doesn't automatically resolve dependencies.

    From slapt-get - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    slapt-get builds functionality on top of the native Slackware package tools (installpkg, upgradepkg and removepkg)
