Kernel 2.6.6 config error


Here is the error I get when I try to config the 2.6.6 kernel:

[joseph@69-169-5-12 joseph]$ su
Password:
[root@69-169-5-12 joseph]# cd /usr/src/linux
[root@69-169-5-12 linux]# make xconfig
HOSTCXX scripts/kconfig/qconf.o
/bin/sh: line 1: g++: command not found
make[1]: *** [scripts/kconfig/qconf.o] Error 127
make: *** [xconfig] Error 2
[root@69-169-5-12 linux]#

Has anyone else gotten this error?

have you installed GCC? (or g++ since some distros has it on a separate package)

I went to see what was installed for GCC and heres the packages:

Installed:

gcc-cpp-3.3.2-6mdk

Not installed yet:
gcc2.96-2.96-0.83mdk
gcc2.96-c++-2.96-0.83mdk
gcc2.96-cpp-2.96-0.83mdk
gcc-c++-3.3.2-6mdk
gcc-colorgcc-3.3.2-6mdk
gcc-doc-3.3.2-6mdk
gcc-doc-pdf-3.3.2-6mdk

gcc-gnat-3.3.2-6mdk
gcc-gpc-3.3.2-6mdk

Is the right package installed? or do I need to install a few of these others?

I think the "gcc-c++-3.3.2-6mdk" may be what you need, but the authoritive source is your 'Changes' document included with your kernel source code. Go to the source directory, then to the 'Documentation' directory, and you should see it. Usually, you can do this in the command line with:

cat /usr/src/linux-versionnumber/Documentation/Changes | less

This will give you not only the required versions, but ways to test if they're installed. It's a good idea to do so, even during what might be minimal upgrades.


--------
Edit: You might need an older version, which may seem odd, but not if you consider that it would be painful if everyone had to upgrade their system to the newest software everytime Linus decided to.
