no acceptable C compiler found in $path


Whenever I try to configure a program after untarring it I receive this error.

[root@localhost mc-4.6.0]# ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

How do I get the C compiler into $PATH

I am using RH9

Now I feel like a supernewbie.

Thanks for pointing out my brain fart.

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.

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
