installation error


I am an idot... Don't even know what I am doing. I am trying to do my first installation on Mandriva 2009.0 after 25 failures on different attempts with different software. I am trying to install wine-1.0.1
I unzip it using ark. launch konsole and path my way to the folder containing the config file. now I'm stuck with the same error message after running this command ./configure Why couldn't it be all rpm. (lol)

Running configure...

checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

Configure failed, aborting install.
[linux@localhost wine-1.0.1]$

so I change to super user

Configure failed, aborting install.
[linux@localhost wine-1.0.1]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost wine-1.0.1]# ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
[root@localhost wine-1.0.1]#

same result
and yes I am a lifetime windows ID10T... Now I want to be a man... (lol)

gcc


gcc is a package that was not included when you installed Mandriva. I assume you used a live-cd to install. There is only so much room on a CD and choices were made. Mandriva has a way of updating and installing additional packages, and you should find gcc for your Mandriva there. Also google for gcc to find out what it is and does.. A hint, it compiles. There is of course a "man gcc".

I will throw this at your feet. Many have found it helpful.

By the way, you may well be an idiot. You misspelled idiot, not a good sign. Welcome anyway.

Why would you want to compile wine if you can install it straight from the mandriva repositories???

Just go into the menu to the thing that looks like a box that says install & remove software. In the bar at the top type wine and hit enter. If you then scroll down you'll see that the mandriva repos currently have two versions in there. Install the newer of the two. It should download and be ready to run in a few minutes. Don't bother compiling and trying to install a version of it unless it is the new one which isn't even tested yet and you shouldn't need it anyways. It looks like you are building 1.0.1 and that version is older than what is in the repos.

How do I find my book markers in firefox. I would like to back them up.

Where is my desktop config file? I would like to back it up.

How do I add users to my login screen? I used BearShare in windows. Do you know if wine will allow me to run it on linux?

Thorkelljarl sorry about my horrible spelling.
