bad interpreter / not enough cc in $PATH


Hi there !

I'm like a BIGTIME Newbie with linux so be very explicit please.

I tried installing AMSN on LindowOS 4 (which is the same as Mandrake 9.1 i guess). When installing it ./amsn in the directory that i extracted it, it said "/usr/bin/wish bad interpreter" . So i guess it's cause of tcl thing.

So i tried to install tcl8.4 but it says "not enough cc in $PATH".
What's that and what should i do ?
What do i have in my path that i don't have enough ?

Thanks !

In a true linux installation, that means that you didn't install the developmental packages.

# Guides to software and installation and uninstallation
LNAG - How do I install a program I downloaded from the Internet?
Rute Guide's software explanation
You might want to check out CheckInstall to manage source code installations/uninstallation

# Mandrake links
Mandrake home page
Mandrake Users website
Easy urpmi config for Mandrake
urpmi mini-HOWTO
Easy software management: Red Carpet
Maximum RPM
rpmfind
You didn't install the developmental packages? As root, command:
urpmi gcc

urpmi mc

Ok Thanks but one thing though. I have problem with compiler right !?!
I've downloaded gcc and when i write ./configure i get this :

/usr/local/gcc-3.3# ./configure
configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld host.
created "Makefile" in /usr/local/gcc-3.3 using "mt-frag"
./configure: line 8: 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 configure it to a working compiler ?

You have to install gcc after downloading it. Since you don't have a compiler, you obviously can't use source code to compile it. Look for a binary package built for LindowOS 4. It should be on your install CD.

Do you have any idea of what LindowOS 4 uses for a package manager? Have you attempted installing using that?

If you can't find it that way and if you can handle rpm, search rpmfind for it.

indows OS 4 uses the same thing as Mandrake 9.1 but i don't know what you mean by binary package. When you say package manager, i don't know if RPM v.4.0.4 is that but it seems to be installed there.

I have 1 install CD, and 2 CDs with a bunch of RPM files like KOffice, OpenOffice, gtk, etc but i don't know which one you r talking about.

I am not familiar with Lindows, but I understand that it is purchased and you probably are limited to it's Click and Run packages.

I don't know anyone that runs Linux on a Windows filesystem and can get it to work like Linux.
