Read the README and INSTALL files, check you have the stated compilers, run the stated commands, use new program.

Welcome to LQ.

You can find general instructions here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ticle&artid=15

However you should really read the specific instructions that came with the software you downloaded.

Ok I untar and then cd to the directory, then I type ./configure in the root console. I get this error

configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details

What now? is this source incompatible with suse or something?

you didn't install the development tools when you installed... install gcc and all it's related packages from your distro cd's.

according to Yast, The GCC preprocessor and c compiler runtime library are already installed.

the config.log file should be in the same directory where you
performed the compilation or in your home directory.

Aranilion, if gcc is installed then it is not in your PATH - post the output from:
echo $PATH
find / -name "gcc"

hi there...

with Suse 9.1 personal comes nothing of development tools...
you need to download that by yourself... the Yast dependency check can help you ...
like acid_kewpie said you need all related packages to gcc..

regards
