Apollon install help with problem

I've been trying to install apollon for a while, on redhat, and it never worked, now I'm using Mandrake 9.2, and it isn't working, which I figured. Anways, I got the scrip to run, after screwing around with it. (I'm still somewhat new to linux, I've been using it for a few months and bought a sams book) But when I run the all in one installer off their website, i get an error of "The arkollonrc file in this directory is invalid". So I tried to download off a different server, and get the same error. Is there something I'm doing wrong?? I tried to do it seperate by installing gitt, then apollon, when I try to install gift, i get this:

[root@nick gift-0.11.6]# ./configure
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 whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
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.
[root@nick gift-0.11.6]# make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
And thats as far as I get, I'm not able to do make or make install. And I don't really understand the checking for gcc... no, cc, and cl. Are they libraries or dependencies that I need?

Any help would be greatly apperciated. Thanks.

gcc is the GNU C compiler, pretty essential is you want to compile some C code

i'm going to assume that there's a few standard devel rpm's for mandrake, and gcc will certainly be the first thing they install. find the gcc rpm, and install it. chances are you're going to have to install quite a few dev rpms in order to compile something useful.

oh, and i wouldn't run a configure script as root, 'make install' is the only stage that requires root perms.

my two cents

I still have not been able to get apollon to work, but I'm getting closer...
I installed mandrake 10.1 community... and it came with


The errors I received had to do with g++ not being found, when I finaly got it, it would not work because I had the wrong version...

Here is what worked for me, I'm still having problems with missing libraries but this should get you started.

These are the exact packages I had to install from:
