Unhappy One problem--About installation


Hi,great to meet you.
I had installed fc3 in my laptop,

when I use './configure' to get the makefile,

I meet a problem,

configure: error: C preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check

I use google to search it,but all their answers can't solve

the problem,can you tell me why?

ps:I have gcc-c++ installed in my computer,I think that it is not about

the compiler.

Any advice will be appreciated, and thank you.

A look at this post shows that you might need gcc, gcc-c++, and gcc-cpp. What does "which cpp" give you? Is "gcc-cpp" a choice for whatever package management program you have?
