Unhappy I don't even know what to name this one!


Ok, I was told I couldn't get my packages to compile correctly because I was missing Kaccel. So, I found it at KDE.org, cut and pasted to an editor...now what. How do I get this thing to work. Where do I save it to, etc...

huh?

Who told you, and what are you trying to compile? If you just cut and pasted a link to Kaccell (whatever that is) that's not really gonna help...

Can you give us a bit of info, maybe even what distro you are using?

Cool

Kaccel is part of the kde libraries. You shouldn't cut and paste the file but rather it should be installed from the kde libraries package.

MasterC...Mandrake 8.2, KDE Desktop, The problem is I'm trying to install some silly little game. It keeps giving me the following message..."Configure: Error: no acceptable cc found in $path".

Crash...I don't have my disks anymore..I can't explain why it wasn't installed in the first place.

Oh well thats a different story then. It can't find your C compiler. Do you have a C compiler installed? Is it in your path? Is this just going to spark more questions from you? Yes, I believe it will.

So far, the only thing in my path to computing bliss is this version of Linux...;-)

Seriously, how can I find out?

just run "urpmi gcc" and mandrake should install the compiler just fine for you, asking you to inster the right cd's etc...

but you proabbly don;t want to be installing from source quite yet, install from RPM when possible

whereis gcc

whereis cc

whereis MasterC's house

whereis will look for binary executables. This helps to look for those instead of locate of find that will produce anything with the letters gcc or cc in them. To see if they are in your path, find the path they are with the whereis, and then:
echo $PATH
And see if that location is listed.

MOST LIKELY however, they are not installed. They are part of the "development" portion of the install which confuses many people (including me when I ran that distro). You can install via RPM from your discs if you had them, or via an ftp mirror for your distro's release:
ftp://ftp-linux.cc.gatech.edu/pub/ma...drake-old/8.2/

Find the GCC packages (all of them, or urpmi them and add that ftp mirror to your listed sites) and install it.

Cool

That means it cannot find gcc, in other words, it's not installed. If it was it would say:
gcc: /usr/bin/gcc

So go ahead and get it installed

Cool
