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.

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?

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

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

Hope this helps.

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.
