Help Please


I see Linux is going to drive me bananas for a while!

How the heck do you install drivers in Mandrake 9.0??

Everytime I try the 'make install' command, I get Error 127 and Error 2.

Thanks for any help with this.

Full error message would be helpful...
Are you sure you run 'make install' as root?

You probably didn't install the developmental packages. Does it do checking for gcc - no and stuff like that?

Ok here's some more info.

It's a Aureal Vortex sound card driver. Here's what I get:

make install AUCHIP=AU8820
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/thomas/au88xx-1.0.5'
cc -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DAU8820 -O -Wall -pipe -m486 -I/usr/src/linux/include
-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -c -o vortex.o vortex.c
make[1]: cc: Command not found
make[1]: *** [vortex.o] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/thomas/au88xx-1.0.5'
make: *** [install20] Error 2
[root@oh-chardon1a-148 au88xx-1.0.5]#

Thanks for the help.

you don't have a c compiler installed. if the mandrake package junk is all configured properly, just run "urpmi gcc" as root and let it install everythign it needs

Or you don't have gcc symlinked to cc. Sometimes 'export CC=gcc' works (when there's gcc installed).
