GCC and XAWTV


I'm trying to install my camera driver, from what it's saying in the terminal I need GCC and XAWTV. I know XAWTV is an application for a tv tuner card, which I can't find a link to download it. Now, the GCC, I found a bunch of these on soundforge. What is this stuff and where can I get it?

GCC is the GNU Compiler Collection, gcc is the GNU C
compiler from that collection. It should be part of most
distro's (excluded from a few live-CDs and SuSE
personal, for example).

http://linux.bytesex.org/xawtv/ - not sure how you
managed not to find that one :)


Cheers,
Tink

I'm using Mandrake 10, should I have to install GCC? My Konsole is warning me during installation that GCC is missing, what should I do?

Thanks

having problems installing XAWTV. keep getting an error

Oops: (n)curses library not found. You need this one, please install.
Note: to compile stuff just the library packages are not enougth,
you need also the *-devel packages.
make: *** [arch-i686-linux/Makefile] Error 1

What does this mean??

Exactly what it says:
you don't have the development libraries for
ncurses installed. Find them on your CD and
install them.

damn....What name are these going to be under? I found ncurses-5.3-1.20040125.4mdk.i586.rpm but they were already installed... Is there anyway I could have all these installed when I reinstall Mandrake.

I don't use mandrake, had bad experiences in
the past ... I don't know whether it would install
all dev-libraries by default if you re-installed it.

Just search for ncurses-dev on rpmfind.net

Got the ncurses installed now it's giving me:
Oops: jpeg library not found. You need this one, please install.
Note: to compile stuff just the library packages are not enougth,
you need also the *-devel packages.

Seems like there a part of the ncurses. What should I do at this point, I have no idea what -devel packages are?

Tinkster, your the sh*t
I do see the pattern here, thanx to you, just didn't know it started with LIB then jpeg-devel. Thanks for everything, I hope I just don't forget everything I learned in the morning. This is alot of stuff to learn. I'm sure I'll have many more errors before it's over. lol

That's the beauty of it :)
Linux keeps me learning, every day I learn more.

As for the memory: just remember the website and
your nick, and the seach will bring it all back ;)

Man, I'm almost there but can't get past MAKE INSTALL. ./CONFIGURE works fine but when i put in make install it gives me the following:

/usr/bin/install -c -d -m 755 /usr/local/bin
/usr/bin/install: cannot change permissions of `/usr/local/bin': Operation not permitted
make: *** [install] Error 1

Does this mean it's installed (configured) in the wrong directory or am I not the administrator or what? I was almost there too......

I almost feel as though I should be paying for this service.
