I installed slack 9.1 on this laptop a month or so ago.
I don't have a spacious HD so I went through the 'menu' type of install, to deselect any pkg's that I feel I don't need.
Well, since I'm a n00b, there were some file that I did need.
For instance I couldn't access the man pages, talk about a catch 22.
Anyway, I've resolved most of my mistakes in regards to not installing needed packages.
I am still running into some errors when compiling C software.
I just attempted to compile gqmpeg and after executing ./configure it tells me, configure: error: no acceptable ld in $PATH.
If I knew what LD was I could probably (emphasis on probably) fix it, but I don't know what LD is to begin with.
Secondly, when attempting to compile checkbook the 'make install' process tells me I don't have any GTK+ libraries installed.
I believe there are some other issues that I have created, but I was wondering first of all, how do I get an acceptable 'ld' in $PATH.
Thanks in advance,
