i've been using emacs under red-hat linux on the campus where i go to school. now i've put ubuntu on my home machine and i need to get emacs and gcc working on it.
there's a big complication, tho...i don't have a network connection on this machine.
i got the emacs22.1 TAR file from FSF and used my thumb-drive to transfer it to my machine. however, when i ran ./configure, it said that my C compiler cannot create executables.
is there a way that i can get gcc working, and thus emacs, without using a network connection?
thank you so much for any advice you have
