Re: Compiling nmap on Red Hat
From: Rob Nicholls <robert () robnicholls co uk>

I went for a Desktop installation of Centos 6.2 (effectively a rebranded RHEL) the other day, then added some additional packages for development, clients etc. and I was able to compile Nmap okay (equally, I've never had trouble with building Nmap on Fedora in the past).

A "yum install gcc" might progress things slightly for you, as IIRC g++ is part of gcc. You probably need to install several other client and development packages to get other parts of the Nmap project (e.g. Python) to work though.

Basically, you should be able to compile Nmap on Red Hat, you just need to make sure you have all the development packages you need if you want to compile anything (including other tools) on your host. An alternative might be to install a binary version if you just want the latest stable version of Nmap (and aren't compiling from SVN): http://nmap.org/dist/nmap-6.00-1.i386.rpm (I haven't tried this myself).

It looks like you might need the install media, but not being a RHEL
person myself, this is as far as I can go. However, it looks like
you're not alone in this problem.

I'm pretty much a noob at Red Hat and much prefer Debian (and I'm not
   that great at Debian either).  In any case:

   [francois () cerberus nmap-6.00]$ sudo find / -name g++ -print
   [francois () cerberus nmap-6.00]$ sudo yum search g++
   Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
   Warning: No matches found for: g++
   No Matches found
So it appears that I do not have an executable named g++ anywhere on
   my system and searching for g++ in yum returns nothing.
Surely someone else has tried to compile nmap on Red Hat before...
   Thanks,

Looks like you need g++ installed, or if it is, put it in your
     path.

There should be an RPM you can install. If you have yum installed,
     you could do yum search g++.

     Let us know if that helps.
