trying to install a media player..


i am currently attempting to get a media player up and going on my redhat 9 system. The problem is after i cd to the directory of the software i want to install; and type ./configure or sh ./configure, i get an error which stops me from installing the software.

this is the error i got when attempting to install Xine:

[root@localhost xine-lib-1-beta12]# ./configure
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 whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
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.

please help. this is really bugging me.

you don't have a C compiler on your system, install gcc from your distro cd's.

With redhat 9 is there no listing of software that you can install from the cd's?

Under mandrake, I can look at a list of available software that can be installed from the disc's and I just select what I want and it will either prompt for a disc or download from the net. Maybe you have a similar facility with the redhat???

Just a thought.

regards

John
