I getting the error you must set the environmnet variable to a working compiler


I am attempting to install gcc on my hp zv5000 laptop running Fedora Core 2. I was able to untar the file gcc-core-3.4.0.tar.gz but when I attempt to install it from the :

[root@localhost gcc-3.4.0]# ./configure

directory I get the following error :

*** The command cc -o conftest -g contest.c failed.

*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler

What does this mean? And what do I need to get gcc installed? I am attempting to install nessus but when I tried to is stated that I needed a working compiler like gcc. Help please. Thanks.

You'll need to install a gcc-.rpm, probably be easiest to get it off your Fedora CD's. When installing distros I always install development tools to avoid these situations.
