Err: 'No Acceptable C Commplier.....


Hi guys,

I get this error when trying to ./configure in the wine20031212 directory. Why is this?

The Error: 'configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH'

Hi again AppleMan!

Do you have gcc compiler installed?. That is an ultra important package and is surely shipped with most of Linux distributions. You might want to install them from your CD's

Lemme know your distribution and version if you cannot find them.

Regards!

Ha ha,

Well, Megaman, I've got yellowdog linus install, the latest version. 3.0.1 sirius. can I download a gcc complier? if so how would I install that? I seem to be getting an awful lot of installation errors when I try and put something new into the system. Is there a program out there that makes installing programs simper? I may be being as clear as mud again.

Ok, google looked messy so I jumped at libranet irc channel and it seems a couple of guys are familiar with Yellow Dog and Macs. It uses, apparently, a package manager called yum. Try to find that program and install gcc (GNU C Compiler) from there. Looks like Yellow Dog is Redhat based too, so it should be capable of installing rpm's(?). Try looking at yum first

I really should be getting myself a nice new chair from IKEA or something given the ammount of time I spend on my computer. I mean, I can spend anything upto 10 hours per day messing arround with new projects on my computer. Is anyone else got the same problem? It's difficult waking up in the morning on workdays though

Right, can't find yum. So I'm downloading GCC 3.3.2 from www.tucows.com .

What are the normal ways of installing software? i.e. Mac and Windows users are used to a GUI explaining what is going on, how does linux manage this?

Cool that you mention IKEA. I'm in Sweden by the way . Anyway, I found this on google for you:

http://www.yellowdoglinux.com/suppor...eral/yum.shtml

looks like all you've to do is to type:

yum install gcc

That's a difficult question to answer. Every Linux distribution seems to have a way of installing packages. With Redhat and Mandrake, you can pretty much install everything using GUI's. It really won't matter the distro you use, sooner or later it's back to the command line . Like the old times... which I personally think it's great. I'd suggest you to stick with the command line...

Next Error: (getting a little closer now i think)

root@localhost gcc-3.3.2]# ./configure
Configuring for a powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu host.
Created "Makefile" in /root/Downloads/gcc-3.3.2 using "mt-frag"
./configure: line 8: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.


What is this telling me?

I will play clean with you for me it does not say much, ghehe. But as always, I've found a link for you here and see if it helps. You could also try to install wine through yum:

yum install wine

maybe?...hmmmm....
