How To Install GCC on Fedora 38

Install GCC on Fedora 38

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install GCC on Fedora 38. Do you want to install GCC on Fedora 38 but don’t know where to start? Look no further! In this article, we’ll walk you through the process of installing GCC on Fedora 38. GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) is a powerful compiler that supports several programming languages such as C, C++, and Fortran. Installing GCC on your system will give you access to a suite of powerful tools and features that can help you write better and more efficient code.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) on a Fedora 38.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Fedora 38.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for GCC.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install GCC on Fedora 38

Step 1. Before we can install GCC on Fedora 38, it’s important to ensure that our system is up-to-date with the latest packages. This will ensure that we have access to the latest features and bug fixes and that we can install GCC without any issues:

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh

Step 2. Installing GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) on Fedora 38.

Once your system is updated, you can proceed with the installation of GCC. To do this, run the following command in the Terminal:

sudo dnf install gcc

After successfully installing GCC, you can verify if it’s installed correctly by checking its version:

gcc --version

Step 3. Testing the GCC Compiler.

The first step to testing the GCC compiler is to write a simple test program. For example, you can create a file called ‘test.c‘ with the following code:


int main() {
   printf("Hello World!");
   return 0;

The next step is to compile the test program using the GCC compiler. You can do this by running the following command in the terminal:

gcc test.c -o test

The final step is to run the test program and verify that it works correctly. You can do this by running the following command in the terminal:


Congratulations! You have successfully installed GCC. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing the GCC (GNU Compiler Collection) on your Fedora 38 system. For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official GCC website.
