gcc / cc etc not found !


hello,

Error Message after doing "./configure":

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I did not find (locate) anything cc/gcc/cl etc on my system.

Should not be one of these compiler already installed on all systems in order to boot up at all??? I am just a bit confused.

Any help is much appreciated.

Realos

You don't need gcc, automake or autoconf to run linux, only to compile source code, install them from your distro cd and you should be ready to rock.

Heres a gcc RPM I found: ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/5....3-14.i386.rpm

You also MAY need these rpms but proberbly not:

ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/5...2-6.noarch.rpm
ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/5...3-2.noarch.rpm
ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/5....12-9.i386.rpm (try ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/6...4.0-5.i386.rpm if problems arrive)

Those RPMs should work on Mandrake or Red Hat

You should edit your profile and add your distro realos, it makes it easier for people to help if they know what your using.
