Intel motherboard on-board sound (i810?)

Linux newbie here. I recently installed Red Hat 8 (included with linux for dummies book). I've tried several things to get the sound working based on other posts. I downloaded the alsa drivers, but errors occur after I type ./configure.

[root@localhost alsa-driver-0.5.12a]# ./configure --with-cards=intel8x0
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

What does this mean?

To answer the specific question, /usr/bin/cc is a link to /usr/bin/gcc, it can be made thus "ln -s /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/cc", IF gcc is installed of course. ./configure CC=/usr/bin/gcc etc., etc. also would work.

If this doesn't do the trick:

modprobe i810_audio

Then you probably have one of those weird newer cards that isn't covered by the kernel and you indeed need to install ALSA. Right now you did a vanilla desktop RH install. RH being weenies, don't give you a compiler by default... but the alsa RPMS should be on that CD somewhere, as well as gcc, cc and a bunch of other stuff. You can go either way, compile from source, which means you're going to have to rpm on a lot of compiler/tools, and then compile alsa, or find the RPMs for alsa, I think they still package that as an option...

Regardless, take a look at the graphical package managers you have on board.
