How do I install a Gcc compiler on Puppy Linux?
 
I tried to compile a source but it doesn't find a compiler during the ./configure command. What should I do? Thanks.

You might want to have a look here: http://www.murga.org/~puppy/

Puppy has gcc-3.3.1
Either try another way of installing like here
or find out if the install is compatible or read the 'README'.
BTW, what are you installing?

First I tried to install Wesnoth :), but it dosen't find a compatible compiler.

Hey guys,
Just wondering if someone might wanna do the world a favor and get rid of all these non-functioning murga linux links. I'm sure the site was/is awesome, but now its in the way on just about every pertinent puppy question.
thnks

Hehe - I did that once and immediately after deleted all the links used.It's a Pita to get installed and then it doesn't work most of the time because of missing libs.

Don't they have a wesnoth package somewhere? Really,believe me you don't want to use compiling and Puppy and the same sentence :p

Exactly, at least not from source. You can, however, find in the Puppy docs how to convert and install .deb packages. :cool:

Hope this helps.

Just noticed this thread is 1-1/2 years old...:redface:

Doesn't matter - still can't get gcc to work with puppy and converting .deb's is also hit and miss plus I don't get reply messages from the forums :-)

Yeah, and I also noticed their repos are a bit lacking, although that's not such a big deal- it has everything I need in the initial installation. Pretty damn fast too, I might add. It'd be nice if someone would support it a little better... Hell, it might could even bump Ubuntu off the chart! ;)

Never was very reliable and a mess repo-wise.
Which is sad because it was one of the few distros that did someting else (besides changing the Ubuntu theme) with the possibility to write your session to the CD/DVD you booted from - was just what I needed for a laptop with a broken hard drive a while back.

But people tend to not know that there is no way to have a dev-environment on 120 mb disc space and a bunch of apps on the side.
