problem encountered on installing qpopper


Here how i started, i downloaded the file qpopper4.0.5.tar.gz from qpopper.org. I also downloaded the guideline on installing and configuring qpopper. i did the symbolic links from /usr/mail to /usr/spool/mail. after that i extracted the qpopper4.0.5.tar.qz. then procede to tar qpopper.4.0.5.tar. these is what i encountered on installing, on the command ./ configure these errors came out.
./configure
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

What could be the problem there?


Thx

you don't have a compiler installed, pop in the disk for your distro or use an rpm installer and locate the gcc package, install it and all of its dependent packages and you should be able to compile.
This is almost certainly the problem.
