Troubles with GCC/GAIM Installation


I'm completely new to Mandriva and Linux in general, but I'm learning and I pick things up fast.

From what I can discern, my issue is that I don't have a functioning C Compiler installed.

[root@localhost pidgin-2.3.1]# ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking for sed... /bin/sed
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
[root@localhost pidgin-2.3.1]#

How do I fix this? I just want to be able to compile GAIM so I can install it. Am I doing something wrong?


I've looked in my package managers under development and c and found GCC-CPp and the GCClibc stuff, and it's all installed. :/

Three things, first don't configure and build software as root. You only need to be root to install the package system-wide. Second, doesn't Mandriva have pidgin in it's repositories for you to use? Third, did you "See `config.log' for more details." as the configure script suggests?
