c compiler not found


sry for doulbe-post but i couldn`t get help in the newbe section and everything i found was about desctop systems so this is my last hope
the problem is that the gcc compiler cannot be located although it is installed. i wrote everything in this topic.

i set up a new root server with SuSE 10.0. as i tried to compile the source for some programs i got following error message "configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH" but the gcc compiler IS installed under /usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/4.0.2/
i couldn`t even reinstall it due to the fact i didn`t find any .rpm packeges and everything i found was about desktop systems with YAST.

would be nice if anybody could help me

From the command line issue:

rpm -qa |grep -i gcc

that will tell you if you in fact you have gcc installed.

If it isn't the you will have to install. I'm not familiar with SuSE, but with most Linux distros you should be able to use whatever package management solution they provide, you mentioned YAST. Does YAST have a section called "Development" or something similar in it?

If you absolutely can't get gcc from YAST then try downloading the rmp from SuSE's repositories and installing on your system with the "rpm" command. Again I'm not familiar with the distro but most Linux variants have an online repository.

If you have the original installation CD's check to see if gcc is included. If it is upload it to an ftp or web server and snarf it from there onto your server.
