Unhappy How to add a C/C++ compiler or developtment IDE


Hello,

I just downloaded and ran this nice Linux on my little laptop (first of all
thanks for whoever contributed to this projects :-) ), but I couldn't find
any C/C++ compilers (like gcc).

Does anybody know if I can get a package for a development IDE with
the compiler and how to install it on top of the Amigo Linux.

Thanks :-)

Itay

The Amigo web site says it is fully compatible with Slackware, so check the slackware repositories for what you need!

Thumbs up

I followed the link you gave and downloaded the gcc packages for C and C++
for the current slackware distribution, I will try to install them.

Thank you very much for your help :-)

actually for amigo 2.0 you should use slackware 9.1 packages, current packages are probably not going to be compatible.

forgive my ignorance, I downloaded the file 'gcc-3.2.3-i486-2.tgz', but how can
I install it in Amigo (I see there is a 'doinst.sh' script in the install directory,
but how should I uncompress the tgz file so all the files in it would be copied
to the right locations (and then maybe I will be able to run this 'doinst.sh' script).

Thanks :-)

as root go to the directory where you have the package and do installpkg gcc-3.2.3-i486-2.tgz

or do pkgtool and follow the menus.

You need gcc, gcc-g++, kernel headers, make and binutils minimum to compile stuff. You'll probably want perl, m4, libtool, and autoconf also.
Use pkgs from slackware 9.1.

Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate it, I will try what you suggest and let you know.

I downloaded the gcc and gcc-g++ and binutils packages from the slackware repository for slackware 9.1, but what is
the name of the make package, and
(ignore my ignorance again) what
is 'pkgs' ? (and what is the package name
that contains it).

Thanks :-)

pkgs is short for 'packages'. All the packages are located in the /d folder of any slackware mirror:
.../slackware/slackware-9.1/slackware/d
http://ftp.scarlet.be/pub/slackware/....80-i386-1.tgz
Always check the /patches folder for any critical updates.
