Problem at compile time!!


I've got SuSE 9.0 installed on my system.

I downloaded a tarball with the sources of XMPS (mpeg and
DivX video player for Linux), and I unTARed it succesfully
onto /home/juanja/xmps-0.2.0. XMPS is 'X Media Player System'.

First step to compile the sources: type './configure' and shows:

Code:
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... no
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking host system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking build system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking for ranlib... ranlib
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

I assume I've probably got no gcc and no cc installed at all.

How could I solve this? How can I install the compiling libraries?
Any idea?

Do you have internet access? Try:

Code:
apt-get install gcc
You might have to do that again only with g++ instead of gcc. That should install gcc and if you need g++. If it doesn't post the errors, or check the manual pages with:

Code:
man apt

You need to use YAST in SuSE - but it has the same effect.

The same effect as what??

I ran setup tool in SuSE (alias YaST) under 'manual installation' and found Ive got
gcc under status 'installed'.

If it tells its installed, then why the messages??

What to do then??

By the same effect, I meant that it downloads, installs and resolves dependencies. Just like APT.

Go into YAST, go to Add/Remove Software. Do a search for GCC. Which version do you have installed?
