no acceptable C compiler found in $path
 
Whenever I try to configure a program after untarring it I receive this error.

See `config.log' for more details.

How do I get the C compiler into $PATH

I am using RH9

Is it installed?

gcc --version

No it appears not to be.

You can"t use something unless you install it, I presume you know.

So True
 
Uh, Sometimes I tend to overthink things.

Now I feel like a supernewbie.

Thanks for pointing out my brain fart.

Thanks

I had the same problem, but I installed gcc (though it was without Internet and some problems with fiding files on disk were occurred)...Now it writes

What does it mean and what should I do? Pleace, help me !

pixellany 10-28-2008 04:47 AM

On the surface of it, it means that make is not installed. Since you say that there were issues installing gcc, the first thing to try would be re-installing gcc.

lomza_t 11-16-2008 12:05 PM

OK, I re-installed gcc and...NOTHING! Exactly the same! Oh Gosh! I'll better die!

stuart_cherrington 11-17-2008 05:51 AM

So, is the command 'make' in your $PATH?? if you run 'which make' does it display the full path of the make command? If not, you'll need to find the command (look in /usr/bin or /bin) or use 'locate make' (if locate is installed) and add this directory to your PATH shell variable.

Stuart.

On a seperate note, you would have been better off starting a new thread as the one you just updated is 5 years old!!!

OK I assumed too much.

Is the 'make' package installed, as said previous, if itsnot installed you can't use it.

check with 'rpm -qi make' if its not, then install it.

1. this is 5 yrs old. Ask the mods to move this to a new thread for you via the Report button.

2. we'd need to know what distro and version you've got
Code:

cat /etc/*release*
uname -a

3. in any case, as it says, you've not installed the dev tools, inc the gcc compiler.
Do that before you try building stuff
