Angry installing ALSA


I'm really sorry but im a super n00b and i dont know what i am doing.
I can't get my sound to work in red hat 7.3 (it worked in mandrake but not in red hat) so i thought i would install alsa but i seem to be having problems doing that.
anyways i have everything extracted into the proper dirs (i hope) and i go
/configure --with-cards=emu10k1 --with-sequencer=yes;make;make install

here's what i get
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

Please, run configure script as first...

make dep
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.5.12a'
make -C utils update-deps
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.5.12a/utils'
Makefile:8: ../Makefile.conf: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `../Makefile.conf'. Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.5.12a/utils'
make[1]: *** [cards.config] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/alsa/alsa-driver-0.5.12a'
make: *** [include/sndversions.h] Error 2

what am i doing wrong?

you haven't got gcc installed. install the package, and it's dependencies from your distro cd's.

also, that line you're using is very silly, at the very least you must replace the ; with &, but you should split it into three seperate commands, like you're meant to.

and howabout a slightly less objectionable name?

I'm the super noob here, and having problems with my sound. I NEVER used linux and now i'm using red hat 7.2

Can any1 tell me how to get my sound working?
I downloaded some unofficial drivers, but they didn't work, al i got was some error messages, but i'm not sure what they were (cause i wrecked my whole linux and did not install it again).

I read somewhere i needed to mak a boot loadable module, any1 know how to?

Of course we do

But a good thing for us to know to help would be what soundcard you have Type this into a terminal:
su -
enter password
lspci (LSPCI lowercase)
And paste the output. To paste from a terminal, highlight the text, and then press the middle button/scroll button or if neither exists, both mouse buttons together into the message body.

Cool
