Installing tar.gz


I want to install a newer version of digikam and attempted to do it using urpmi, but it wouldn't do it. Downloaded a rpm and thought it was installed, but it's not. Thought I'd download rpmfind for use in cases like this. The version of my CD won't install - says it needs librpmio.4.0.4.so which is not on the CD.

When I use ./configure I get this. What now? I feel as though I am going around in circles.


[rosemary@localhost rosemary]$ cd rpmfind-1.8.0/
[rosemary@localhost rpmfind-1.8.0]$ ./configure
creating cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... found
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for ranlib... ranlib
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
[rosemary@localhost rpmfind-1.8.0]$

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

You need to install 'gcc' and 'make' - look for them on your CDs or from URPMI.

You'll also want to install the source for the kernel you are using. Mandrake includes all of this on the install CDs. You'll just need to choose and install them using your package manager.

If you select "development" options you'll get the compiler tools you're looking for

I went back to the package manager and it told me I had installed all needed. I suspect it is because i have downloaded some unstable stuff! I know - I "no-no" for newbs!

Will see what happens.
