when you installed rh9, what sort of installation did you do?

did you install everything? from within your installation class (ie: workstation or server)

well which ever install you chose you obviously did not install any development tools, esp gcc. two options:

1) only use rpms (blackbox is readily available as an rpm)

2) install gcc and all other required packages. (my vote)

just say gcc and it will probably install other essential packages e.g glibc-devel, or at least tell you to install them

use the balckbox rpm...or better yet use apt

go here:http://ftp.freshrpms.net/pub/freshrpms/redhat/9/apt/

and dl this to your home dir:[RPM] apt-0.5.5cnc5-fr2.i386.rpm 16-Apr-2003 12:11 853k Binary x86 rpm package

then open an xterm and

#rpm -ivh apt-0.5.5cnc5-fr2.i386.rpm

then run:

#apt-get update
#apt-get install blackbox

follow the prompts. It will resolve all the deps for you and then when you log in choose blackbox from the one menu (I am at my RH8 box and can't get to the 9 one to figure which menu it is but it is one of them on the bottom of the login screen)

good luck

Thank you, very much...I like to help when I can but it's also helpful to me b/c there are lots of people here that help me to. So I kind of owe a bit 'o debt to others who may not have heard of an easier way. Apt rules and I hope you have a lot of fun with it

Good Luck with the config. Don't for get to read as much as you can on BB. Also look into bbkeys I believe it is a config program for BB.
