Or you could get this rpm off the rpmfind repositories: here

Does yum work at all? It looks like yum can't connect to the fedora repository. Try "yum repoinfo Fedora" and post the details.

There is no need to use rpmfind. Please use the official Fedora repositories.

Just pointing out that that isn't the command to install gcc. The command would be sudo yum install gcc. glibc is a different package.
