SUSE Newbie


I am trying different distos and the latest for me is Suse 9.1 PE. I really like it but am having trouble installing programs (This was KDE games). When I run ./configure I get the following message:

checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for -p flag to install... yes
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking for kde-config... /opt/kde3/bin/kde-config
checking where to install... /opt/kde3 (as returned by kde-config)
checking for style of include used by make... none
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

What is going on? What does "No acceptable C Compiler found in $PATH mean?

Thanks for any help,

Rick

Suse personal has no compiling tools. Personal was intended as a small ready-to-use linux desktop system. You can have a grasp on what should be using a linux computer to do daily things, but you can't compile programs and do geek stuff on it.
Of course, you can install all needed tools. I mean, Personal won't install by default.

Suse Compiler

Thanks for answering. Will 9.1 Professional have it?

9.1 pro does have compiling tools as well as a big load of programs. Its a very comprehensive collection of software.
Why don't you try to install gcc in personal? Its quite possible. Go to rpm.pbone.net and search suse rpms. They exist and are a lot.
rpm.pbone.net (choose advanced search)

I am using Suse personal right now, it took me some time to get all the libraries and applications that I needed to get it to the point to where I could install most appplications easily. The way to I was able to do so was from Suse's FTP site. They have all the packages you need, check it out.
