Sound not working realtek


I'm trying to install either realtek or standard debian alsa

Code:
root@Them:/home/muammar/Desktop/realtek-linux-audiopack-5.17/alsa-driver-1.0.25# ./configure
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: in `/home/muammar/Desktop/realtek-linux-audiopack-5.17/alsa-driver-1.0.25':
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
from the log:
Code:
configure:2734: checking for gcc
configure:2764: result: no
configure:2827: checking for cc
configure:2874: result: no
configure:2930: checking for cl.exe
configure:2960: result: no
configure:2984: error: in `/home/muammar/Desktop/realtek-linux-audiopack-5.17/alsa-driver-1.0.25':
configure:2987: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
For this error the guide says
Quote:
You don’t install the compile application. Go to install development tools.
I do have gcc intalled.

I have linux headers.

Really lost here. Can't get alsa or realtek to work

Code:
root@Them:/# alsactl init
alsactl: init:1743: No soundcards found...
Code:
root@Them:/# cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [Generic        ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic
                      HD-Audio Generic at 0xf7e60000 irq 17
I have realtek alc898

a few things
one is this Ubuntu12.10 ? or debian stable ?

second it is never a good idea to run "configure" as root ( can cause problems down the line)

Third it is also not a good idea to save software to the "Desktop" .It is a "special" folder and trying to build source code from there can cause problems

are you 100% sure ?
the error is rather clear, it is not installed .

if you did , then exactly How did you install it ?

Debian 6.06
So anywhere besides the Desktop? Home folder?

gcc is installed by default in debian afaik. If I search gcc in the software centre there are a dozen or so packages installed already.

I think it just cannot find how to use gcc.
For this reason

gcc has a lot of parts
it is a suite of programs
gcc,cpp,g++ are the common ones
they also have "aliases "
gcc =CC
c++=cpp
i am betting the configure script is looking for "CC"

is gcc linked to CC in /usr/bin


the home ( ~/) folder is fine
the "Desktop" folder can sometimes cause some unexpected problems

Hey muammar, it would be great that you post how you got it working, so everyone who pass by here finds some useful information.

PD: I, personally, am having a similar trouble.
