Unhappy How do I Install the new version of Apache?


I went to the apache.org website and followed the instructions on how to install it. Well I downloaded the httpd-2.0.47.tar file and then I succesfully untarred it on my machine. Then I proceeded to type ./configure but this is what came up:

[root@luckyclay httpd-2.0.47]# ./configure
checking for chosen layout... Apache
checking for working mkdir -p... yes
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld

Configuring Apache Portable Runtime library ...

checking for APR... reconfig
configuring package in srclib/apr now
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
Configuring APR library
Platform: i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for working mkdir -p... yes
APR Version: 0.9.4
checking for chosen layout... apr
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
configure failed for srclib/apr


What is this C compiler? and if so how can I obtain it to install this new version of apache?

So if anyone can help on this matter I will be gladly appreciative

you must install the gcc in order to compile any C program, specially program sources. You can find it in your distro installation cd-rom.

GCC-3.3

Now I downloaded GCC-3.3 and now im trying to configure it this is what happens:

[root@luckyclay source]# cd gcc-3.3
[root@luckyclay gcc-3.3]# ./configure
Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld host.
Created "Makefile" in /opt/source/gcc-3.3 using "mt-frag"
./configure: line 8: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler.

Now what does this mean?

You can download an apache rpm file and install it. It's a lot easier than compiling it from the source. You can find it at:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i586.rpm.html
