installing hp deskjet 3845 on mandrake 10.1


I am having problems installing the Hp driver from following the instructions from the hp web site (hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/install.php#download_install). Everything seems to work ok untill I get to "./configure --prefix=/usr" on step 2 number 6 when I get the error message:- (Sorry its a bit long!)

[simon@skay hplip-0.8.4]$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for chkconfig... found in /sbin
checking for install_initd... no
checking for rpm install... no
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating Makefile
configure: configuring in prnt
configure: running /bin/sh './configure' --prefix=/usr '--prefix=/usr' --cache-file=/dev/null --srcdir=.
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c

configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing
checking for gawk... gawk

configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for prnt

Can anyone help?

By the way my printer is connected through the USB port.

Thanks

You need to install the GCC compiler... you are trying to compile a program with no compiler!

Use your package manager and install GCC and its dependancies and then it should work...

If you type in `gcc` as a command to you get any output at all?
