Compiler problem..?
 
Well I have an Asus eee pc...

I am trying to install Wine but I got the error saying I need a C Compiler...


So I downloaded Gcc, unpacked it, and ran the Configure file..

I got this:

Code:

checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether ln works... yes
checking whether ln -s works... yes
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.

Now I get the error but not exactly...

I need a c compiler to compile a c compiler...........?


Gosh this is so confusing..


Well my error is above.. What files do I need, how can I get them, how to I install them? All I want to do is run Wine.

Welcome to LQ!

But you are most likely to find the answers to your questions about your EEE on these EEE-specific sites:

For HOWTO's:

What distribution of linux is running there?
Almost every distribution has some kind of package management through which you can install software for your distribution.
On most distributions you don't need to compile software yourself - you just install it from your distributors repository.

Xandros with KDE.


But I'm still confused.

I know, but I don't think you have had the time (all of 5 minutes!) even to look at the links I gave you (see above).

I was/still am... I can not find anything useful.

I'm bad at searching ;)

I found this link:
http://support.xandros.com/desktop-faq.php#EeePC
Quote:

Does Xandros Provide Support for the Eee PC?
No. The Eee PC is an ASUS product and is solely supported by them, including Operating system issues. The Operating System on the Eee PC is not a Xandros Product. While Xandros may have aided in the development of the Eee PC OS, it is owned and supported by ASUS.

Please contact ASUS support at http://support.asus.com/ for all Eee PC related questions.
Therefore - since I don't know the specifics of xandros or even xandros on eeePC I suggest you follow the advice tredegar gave.

(...if you cannot find some method or tool to upgrade/install software on any of the menus on your desktop - as is common in most distributions.)

No. You are just idle and lazy, and expect someone else to do your basic homework for you.
Just this once: http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:wine
and never again ;)

Thanks but uh-oh.

I got to step 10 then this showed up:

Quote:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libwine_0.9.25-2.1_i386.deb: failed in buffer_write(fd) (10, ret=-1)

And the terminal popped up and said:

Quote:

(synaptic:10254): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_tree_view_unref_tree_helper: assertion `node != NULL' failed
Any help or am I screwed?
