Installing GLIB

I'm trying to install glib, and during the configuration process, I get this error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check. What does this mean and how can I fix it? I already have gcc installed. I'm on fedora core 3 btw.

look at the config.log in the source directory. It will tell you what it was doing when if failed the check

make sure you have all of the development packages installed(autoconf, automake, libtool, gcc, g++, make, etc...) too.

thank you, I did what you said and found out I am missing cc1plus. cc1plus is supposedly included with g++, but after I installed libg++, that cc1plus file was still missing. Any clue on what to do next?
