Compiler in mandrake 10


I'm having trouble installing xine-lib in mandrake. Here's what I do to install it. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

[drew@localhost drew]$ cd xine-lib-1-rc7
[drew@localhost xine-lib-1-rc7]$ ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
[drew@localhost xine-lib-1-rc7]$

If it is not me then what do I need to do to get a comiler. I tried installing one in SuSe personal and it was hell so I gave up on it.
Thanks

Mandrake has a package manager somewhere so use that to install gcc, it'll install all dependencies for you and then you'll be right to go

It appears that you do not have a compiler installed.
Install gcc from your distro disks.

In Mandrake install the C development enviroment and I think that you will have everything.

You need gcc.

And no it is not hard to install it. In Mandrake go to the package management tool and instal gcc. It will take care of all of the dependencies.

If you get tired of waiting for the package mgr to config itself you can allways install .rpm packages manually.

as root
and you'll need to be in the directory
rpm -ivh packagename.rpm

look at the man pages for rpm

Good luck

When I try to add gcc packages from the package manager it asks for disk 4 but theres only 3 disks for mandrake 10.

I was looking at the requirements for gcc and it needs gnat and gzip and all this other crap. How are you supposed to compile those without a compiler in the first place?

I'm not sure why you are having probs. I've installed Mandrake on 3 different machines with no prob. I'm not near one now, sorry.
gcc is on disk 1 of your Mandrake install cd's. I just looked at mine. That is Mandrake 10.0 official.

Here you can get all of the .rpms for mandrake that you could ever use.
http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/

And here
http://plf.zarb.org/packages.php

Are you using an old machine with limited HD space? Installing everything on the Mandrake distro only takes up about 3 GB or so.

Let me give you some more links that might help.

http://tldp.org/
http://www.hk8.org/old_web/linux/lnut/
http://www.linuxprinting.org/
http://www.mandrakelinux.com/en/ftp.php3

I think that I installed the C development enviroment and got all the tools needed for writing and compiling C.

Good luck.

Thanks so much for the help. I'm gonna look into those links you gave me when I get home.
The PC doesn't have limited harddrive space, I have a dual boot with Windows and 6gigs for linux. I should have just installed everything possible in the initial setup.
