/lib/cpp fails sanity check?


configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check

That's what I get when trying to configure an app. What does it mean and how do I fix it?

cheers.

Mainly it means you don't have the gcc compiler installed.
or you don't have all the required libraries and/or development packages
installed/updated...

apt-get install build-essential (if you're running debian - but if you're not then there should be some equivelant)

good luck.
