./configure


I had put up a post 6 hours ago. I do not find it on the list. Hence I find the need to put one again, looking at the urgency of the matter.

While loading the ALSA drivers I came across this hurdle.

./configure says

Loading cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc ... no
checking for cc ... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH


I was suggested to load some development package. On the other hand, I found a confifure file (may be of some other version) on the net.

What next.

BRgds,

Nish

just go to your package manager and install the developemental tools and make sure that gcc is checked. it should be that simple. let me know if you run into anymore problems

./configure ...gcc -v

gcc -v gives

[root@nishith root]# gcc -v
bash: gcc: command not found

You will have to install gcc then if you want to compile anything

Get the appropriate package for whatever system you've got, rpm based or whatever

Unless on the off chance

whereis gcc

or

locate gcc

find's it on your system

Unfortunately though it's not what you want - you'll have to install the packages from your red hat package manager development section as suggested previously.
