First, thanks for being there to help out us newbies. I'm not a programmer but I've picked up a little experience navigating around Linux systems over the years in a terminal/console window and am able to do a few basic tasks.
I've been trying to follow a tutorial here
to get Unison, a file synchronization and back up tool, installed on my host provider. I got past the first stage yesterday and successfully have SSH running, now I'm trying to install Ocaml but have a problem.
When I type:
$ ./configure -prefix ~
...it returns the message:
Configuring for a x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu ...
Unable to compile the test program.
Make sure the C compiler gcc -O is properly installed.
I don't know if it helps but I tried:
I'm out of ideas now. Prior to this point all went exactly as indicated in the tutorial.
Please let me know if you want any more info. My host provider is HawkHost in case anyone knows them.
Really appreciate any help, thanks all.
