I am trying to install programs on my Aspire One
When I typesh ./configure to compile the package I get the message
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error:no acceptable cc found in $PATH

What could be the matter?? Any help appreciated.

You need to install the compile dependancies of your program first. It looks like it needs a c compiler, and probably the make command too.
I believe you can use yum on your aspire one: type that in the terminal (as root):
yum install gcc make
By the way, what are you trying to install?
Do you know about the package manager?
You should use the package manager when possible instead of downloading and installing software all by yourself.

# yum groupinstall "development tools"
when you excute your script its looks for gcc compilers and make but its no on your system. So just run that command and it should install.
