I can't ./configure! :(


Hmmm how can I fix this? Everytime I try to install something from source I can't even get over ./configure...

Here's what happens

          Possibly configure picks up an outdated version
          installed by XFree86. Remove it from your system.

          Check your installation and look into config.log

You don't have any developer stuff installed, most notably gcc(C compiler) g++(C++ compiler) and associated packages. If you have a download edition of libranet, it probably doesn't come with this stuff. You can't compile code w/o a compiler.

I call that either Fedora or Suse botched up installation .

What kilgoretrout said. Also an easier way: if you have the harddrive space, go to package manager, equivalent to add/remove programs, its in yast in suse, and i don't remember what's it called in Fedora and select EVERYTHING, then let it install. that way you won't have to worry about ./configure failing again.

libranet does come with development packages, but you probably didn't install any:
Code:
jeff@moe:~/dload/progs/aterm-0.4.1 $ ./configure
configuring for aterm 0.4.1
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for executable suffix... 
checking for object suffix... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for mv... /bin/mv
checking for rm... /bin/rm
checking for cp... /bin/cp
checking for sed... /bin/sed

[etc.]
did you install apt? i can't remember if that comes with libranet or if i installed it later, but that would probably be an easy way to get what you need. if not, i think you can install programs somewhere in the adminmenu (it's been over a year since i looked at a gui on that box ).

yeah I have apt installed... been using it all the time, and this is the first time that I have to install from source...

Hmmm strange, I'm pretty sure that I have gcc, etc installed tho... here's part of my package list..

Code:
ii  g++-3.2        3.2.3-0pre6    The GNU C++ compiler
ii  gaim           0.81-3         multi-protocol instant messaging client
ii  galeon         1.3.11a-1.0.li GNOME web browser for advanced users
ii  gcc            3.2.3-0        The GNU C compiler.
ii  gcc-3.0-base   3.0.4-7        The GNU Compiler Collection (base package).
ii  gcc-3.2        3.2.3-0pre6    The GNU C compiler
ii  gcc-3.2-base   3.2.3-0pre6    The GNU Compiler Collection (base package)
ii  gcc-3.3-base   3.3.4-6sarge1  The GNU Compiler Collection (base package)
the "ii" corresponds to installed right? I don't get it why it's not found during ./configure
