FC4 /lib/cpp failed sanity check - now Resloved


I'm trying to complie "rhythmbox 0.9"
Quote:
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
There's a lot of output in the config-log and nothing looks specific to this problem. If someone can suggest what I should be looking for in the config.log I'll post it.

This is a new installation of FC4 and updated. It is a desk top installation. This did not include the gcc compliler. I subsequently installed the gcc compiler. In reading through the archives on related problems to mine I've seen reference to now have the c++ processor install. I've tried to "yum" gcc-g++ but this didn't find anything by that name.

Is my c++ compiler installed? I don't know ad I don't know if this is the source of my problem.
