Is there a configure script in the directory??? Is it chmoded??? Does the source code have a INSTALL or README file. Reading that file might help you compile and install the program.

-Tux,

Edit: Found a thread which has the same problem...looks like you have some gcc stuff missing.

Read the README or INSTALL file first .
Maybe you can find the answer.
In my opinion, the most possible reason is that
your system has no right c compiler which is requested in the configure file or you can't install this software through classical steps (such as ./configure make&make install ) at all.

You look as though you are running as root full time. ./configure and make should be done as the regular user. Make install is done as root.

To get gcc installed on Mandrake:
1) http://easyurpmi.zarb.org and setup access to the software repositories
2) System->Configuration->Packaging->Install Software
3) Type in gcc and click install. Also try typing in whatever you where trying to compile - its a lot easier to install stuff if you stick to the Mandrake packages.

I have the same problem.checking for C compiler default output file name... configure

I'm using Ubuntu and I have the same problem. When I try to compile programs I'm getting error Checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables. I have no idea how to tell the compiler the default output file name.

And as I was compiling one program made by my own I got a message

error: stdio: No such file or directory.

It looks like I have to edit some path where GCC is looking header files. But I'm just so newbie that I don't know how to do that.

The ubuntu software install system is Synaptic. Use that to install gcc and gcc-c++ and then see how you go.

I tried to use Synaptic but that did not solved the problem. It looks like I have to edit those header file paths manually but I have no idea how to do that.

Can you post the full error message? What header files are missing?

If you've already got gcc you'll still need to install the -devel packages for whatever programs/libraries the program you're trying to compile is trying to link against.

Error messages

OK, I installed every gcc-related packages I found, but when I compiled with command

> gcc eka.c -v

I got the following messages

I think you've got 2 seperate issues here:
Quote:
eka.c:1:19: error: stdio.h: No such file or directory
Make sure you have the glibc-devel package installed and check that there is a file /usr/include/stdio.h. If the file exists and you still get this error it may be the way you've written the include, my c/c++ is a little rusty but I think it should be
Code:
#include <stdio.h>
or
#include <stdio>
Quote:
eka.c:2:19: error: conio.h: No such file or directory
conio.h is for an old non-standard Borland-proprietary console library for DOS/Windows. The Linux equivalent is the curses library, and you'll need to rewrite your code to use that if you want the program to work in Linux: http://cboard.cprogramming.com/showthread.php?t=69433

I think this is really a programming question so you'll probably get better help in the programming forum on this site.
