Angry Why For this no work


Ok i have Red Hat 7.2 and it uses a compiler that needs to be set to gcc 2.95.x . So i extract it then i did.
./configure then i got this is what i got
Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld host.
Created "Makefile" in /home/angomeka/gcc-2.95.3
./configure: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

So how do i fix this guys?

OK, so you probably don't have cc installed. I think you just need to do
Code:
export CC=gcc   for Bash
or
setenv CC gcc   for csh
That might not be it exactly, but it's something like that.

if you do have cc running on your system, try "./configure --cc=/where/oh/where/is/cc" or whatever

you should also be able to use an older rpm for gcc from rpmfind.net

thanks for the tip. I was wondering if there was a RPM finder.
