XMMS install compiler question

`Hello agian!

Working on getting XMMS 1.2.10 installed on Mandrake 9.2 and I have run into a bit of a snag. This is what the Konsole gives me:

[eek@eek xmms-1.2.10]$ ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr//bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for prefix by checking for xmms... /usr//bin/xmms
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
See `config.log' for more details.

I could use the rmp, though, I would really like to do it the via the Konsole, good learning experience I suppose.

Also, because this is my first encounter with Linux I have been doing some background reading as suggested to help in the endeavor; Can anyone suggest a textbook or so that would be a good starting point, say a college level introduction-ish?

Hi revenge80200!!!

You will have a hard time fixing the dependencies . Try installing from your Mandrake CD's, gcc compiler package. The error you are getting compiling the program is because, well, you have no compiler . But I warn you, that you will have much more dependencies issues. Look at the error, then install the missing package...

Good luck!

Thanks for looking in...., I take it that this could be one of those "nightmare dependency" issues? Okay, I will go the Mandrake CD route that you suggested. Though, any thoughs on some reading material, maybe something that you were forced to use?

Thanks for the thoughts!
