make & C Compiler?
 
Hi,

I gotta say I love Incognito so far. I have created a bootable USB stick and its working fine.

My problem is that I need to install a patch for my wifi driver. I need to run make and when I try I am told its not found in my path. I looked and I could not find make or the GCC C Compiler.

Am I lost, insane, all of the above? Anyone who could give me a pointer in the right direction would be much thanked!

thanks,

Roy

probably doesnt come with it just like DSL linux
try opening a terminal and type apt-get install gcc
if that doesnt work try apt-get install gnu-utils








if still no go download the binary version of the gnu-utils from gnu.org

There is no compiler, headers etc. included on Incognito, so compiling is impossible. All that is stripped in order to reduce the image size. Since Incognito is a LiveCD, our aim is to make it self-contained, and nothing like what you want to do should be required in order to get basic stuff like that to work.

Incognito is based on Gentoo and thus doesn't use APT. The next version will, however, be based on Debian and will thus use APT, which also will be included (so then you'll be able to install stuff much more easily compared to now).

That might work with some hacking. Most of the root system, including /usr, is write-protected, so gcc, libraries + headers etc. have to be installed into the user's home directory.

Yeah I figured it was a trade-off of size vs features. I just need to compile and install drivers to get my wi-fi card supported and was hoping it would be simple to do on the machine itself. Definitely not worth the trouble of installing the compiler since I won't be using this as a build machine anyways.

I'm just going to connect it to my server running SlackWare and do the building on that machine.

thanks for everyones help!
