Asus Eee 901 linux problem


Hi, I've had a load of trouble trying to install GNU g++ or any C compiler for that matter. I have been trying to install things left and right and have always been road blocked. I've downloaded .tar.gz packages from the appropriate sites. I just need help figuring this out. Thanks.

Sticking Point? Sorry, I'm not sure what you're talking about specifically.

After I run ./configure, it says, "configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH"

How would I add it to the path?

'echo $PATH' yielded '/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin/X11'
