Question what compilers/libs/make/development tools do i need to...?


Hey every1, I would like to know which compilers, libs, automakes, perls, or anything else I would need to be able to succesfully install programs. Right now I am on redhat 9.0 and I didn't install any compilers or anything under the "Development" section under the GUI install.

How and where can I actually download and install these files I need myself? For insance I tried installing checkinstall.. needed GCC, got GCC needed "./configure: line 8: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler. " i tried to make GCC then got "/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `cd' "

what I am trying to do is get to the dreg of this problem and find out what i need to install GCC, then find out what I need to install check install. and work that way instead of just installing everything and not knowing what anything does. so the last 2 errors from gcc, ill just retype them in:

[understandlinux@localhost gcc-3.3.2]$ ./configure
Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnu host.
Created "Makefile" in /home/understandlinux/Source/gcc-3.3.2 using "mt-frag"
./configure: line 8: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

and im not sure how to install tar's n stuff so i did ./configure and beneath i did make (although i am pretty sure the order is ./configure then make)

[understandlinux@localhost gcc-3.3.2]$ make
/bin/sh: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `cd'
