Healp missing some compilers


I have recently throwed out microsft system and went ower to the linux system

But now for the problem, its seams that my system is missing some important compilers like binutills, gcc , automake and some more to install software.

Does any one have a compiler package containg all the nessecery compilers or a guide?

Running Arklinux Alpha 10.1

A linux neewbie

well, im kinda certain that gcc is there on your machine right now. the error msg there means that it's not found in your path.
have you installed gcc before this on your machine? (there should be a gcc on your machine after you installed ark itself.)
im assuming u cant even do "gcc -v" cos it's not in your path?

ok, then stop trying to install anything.
you will need gcc and binutils for EVERY install you do.
get the gcc rpm (or whatever is the package system for ark), and install that first.

This is getting more confusing

[root@localhost arklinux]# rpm -ivh gcc-c++-3.3.2-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies:
gcc = 3.3.2 is needed by gcc-c++-3.3.2-1
[root@localhost arklinux]#

hmm ... i think you will need some -dev packages - i dont see them on that page u have mentioned (and im not on linux right now either to check which one.)
maybe u can check that config.log file, and figure out which particular dev package it's talking about (if indeed, that is the case.)
look for something of the like "libxxx-dev"

and hey, in this case, looking at that page of yours again, it only mentions "Standard C++ library development files". we want the "Standard C library development files"
