Unhappy Getting worried Need HELP... GCC3.3


I downloaded the GCC3.3 files and in a terminal I di the following

Code:
./configure
make
It's half an hour later and still going. Do I need to do a make install next?

Have I totally buggered up my system now?
Can I delete the millions of files it's creating?

Help cos I'm getting worried I'll have no HD space left or ruin my setup

GCC buil takes much space...Yes, you need make instal next. Then you can delete the whole source directory, in fact.If you feel you need the source, use 'make clean' after 'make install'. It will delate all compiled files (leaving source).

Hi Mike,
Press CTRL+c to stop the compile. then type "df" to see how much disk
space is left. If you want to finish the compile type "make" again then
"make install".

Michael

Thanks for the replies, It took over an hour and finally ended because of 'memory exhausted'

I deleted the source folder to frre up the diskspace again and will try again tomorrow.

Is there a way to compile and save some memory? I don't really understand what's going on.

Well I used DJGPP c compiler in win xp and I'd like to carry on with a good c compiler. I read that GCC is very good. So if it's there I'll use it.
This way of installing app's is VERY foriegn to me.

Mandrake 9.1 already has 3.2.2 so I was wondering why you wanted to risk breaking your entire install to upgrade to 3.3. I just wondered if you knew a specific reason why you needed to go beyond 3.2.2.

Actually Proud in his similar other post I was suggesting the same thing. There is no need to compile a compiler when one is readily available:
urpmi gcc

As root of course. When prompted for discs, feed em until it's content. Don't mind the roar, it's natural.

Cool
