Hi I am having a problem installing RPM find in REDHAT 9

this is the error i am getting:

[root@redhat1 rpmfind-1.7]# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH



i just switched from windows recently so i am still new to this, any help is appreciated.

It simply means that you need to install a compiler - eg gcc.

If you are using an rpm based distro - just download the gcc rpm and install it - eg:
rpm -ivh gcc-xxxx.rpm

You need to install the gcc (GNU C compiler) off the Redhat disks. It's kind of hidden as part of the developer package set, but you'll need it to compile anything from source.

ok i updated the gcc compiler and now i have a new one

[root@redhat1 rpmfind-1.7]# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking whether ln -s works... yes
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for rm... /bin/rm
checking for mv... /bin/mv
checking for tar... /bin/tar
checking for gzip... /usr/bin/gzip

checking for xml-config... no
rpmfind needs libxml(2) to be installed
On Linux you will need the libxml(2) and libxml(2)-devel packages
You can find them at ftp://xmlsoft.org/
[root@redhat1 rpmfind-1.7]#



but it seems i have this installed as well

root@redhat1 rpmfind-1.7]# apt-get install libxml
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
libxml is already the newest version.
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 removed and 0 not upgraded.
[root@redhat1 rpmfind-1.7]#

what do i do?

Try installing the libxml2 package as well. If that doesn't work, you might have to feed the location of libxml to the make command as an option.

sometimes when installing packages from apt-get and rpm - they may not see each other's dependancies as they sometimes install in their own locations which the other installer may not check.

try installing an rpm version of that dependancy at www.rpmfind.net

Also some tips are ~
try to stick to one package type if possible.
document what you install.
rpm will document all the rpm's.
apt-get documents it's own as well.
tar files are not documented by the tar facility.
compilations are not documented either but I believe there is a way to tell whats installed>> anyone know for sure?
