total noob compiling error


Yo.

Okay so I'm attempting to compile Xine after unpacking it, I cd to the directory, do ./configure, but when it searches for c compilers it says:

checking for style of include used by make... GNU
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.

Where the hell do I go from here?

Please help and take pity on the (very) noobie.

it could be that you have it but it is not in the PATH.
there should be a gcc in /usr/bin.
try
which gcc
if it doesn't give anithing you'll have to install a gcc compiler.
if it gives gcc you should add this line to your .bashrc file:
PATH=/usr/bin/:$PATH. depending on where it says the gcc is you'll have to put something else instead of /usr/bin

cool, okay....I'm running Redhat 9, and in usr/bin I have gcc296...I think thats the conpiler I'm looking for. I found the bashrc file under /etc, but where in bashrc do I fit that code "PATH=/usr/bin/:$PATH" in?

hi,
you can create a .bashrc file in your home directory, if you haven't one, and add there that line.

Anyway, thinking about it, it could be that the problem is that to do ./configure, you have to add a line to tell it where the compiler is.
something like
./configure --gcc-path=/usr/bin/gccWhatever.
try ./configure --help to see the options.

good luck.

actually, if you go in your home directory /home/*user* and type in the name .bash_profile (it's not visible but is in this folder). after you open it, you will see the PATH line and maybe others.
