GCC compiler


I'm fairly sure this question has been asked but I can't find an answer for my own problem.

Whenever I try to configure any Tarball on Mandrake 10 I seem to get the same response, despite the fact that I seem to have GCC installed. (... see the last command lines)

Can anyone help?

It seems that you have the C compiler installed (gcc) but not the C++ extension for it. This should be on the Mandrake CD's, under Development Tools (Or similar).

I hope this helps

Thumbs up

Thanks for the advice, the GCC C++ package was not installed, so
I reloaded the MDK10 setup disks, found the package and installed from Disk 1 & 4, I also ran ldconfig after seeing it suggested elsewhere.....what does this actually do?

Ta again,

Tom

man ldconfig
man ld

It configures the dynamic linker, ld.

Cheers Ian must check that out,

Here's the latest,
Tried to install the Gimp2 tarball but found there were several other 'dependencies' to install first.
Downloaded these (pango, ATK etc) but after installing the Glib tarball, I don't seem to be able to configure pango etc.....tells me there is a problem with Glib!
Feel like I'm running in ever-decreasing circles!

Have to say that Linux keeps you on your toes.

Tom
