How am I supposed to install xmms


Well...I'm back again

Anyway, I want to install xmms

I extract the tar.gz to my root folder and I get another folder called xmms-1.2.10
I open up terminal and go into that directory using cd and then I type ./configure
Then I get this message:
[root@localhost xmms-1.2.10]# ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for prefix by checking for xmms... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

It has an error apparently........what's wrong?

You have downloaded source package of XMMS and u need a compiler to compile it (Compiler just makes executable binaries)

Download and install gcc (it is also definitely on your linux installation cds)

you don't have a compiler, just install gcc.
