Problem installing Bison 2.4.1 on Suse 11.1


I need to install Bison. I downloaded the tar, unpacked it and tried to install it, starting with ./configure , like described in the INSTALL file.

I get the following message:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking wether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking wether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See 'config.log' for more details.

Has anybody an idea what I can to?

Thanks in advance!

Hi and welcome to the forum.

You can install bison in openSUSE, by doing the following as root
zypper in bison
If you want to install it from source like you were doing above, you first need to install glibc-devel using zypper (like above).
