BlackBox Install issue

I just downloaded Blackbox-0.65.0 and I'm running into a few problems when I try and install it.
First off, I'm running Suse 9.0 on a 1 ghz AMD with 256 Mb ram, with a Voodoo 5500 video card

So as you can see it's nothing real special.

When I follow the directions I get an error when I try and run ./config

Here's what I see when I run it.

linux:/home/Doug/blackbox-0.65.0 # ./configure
creating cach ./config.cach
checking for BSD compatable install.../usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build enviroment is sane...yes
checing whether make sets ${MAKE}
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
checing for
checking for cc... no
configure error:no acceptable cc found in $PATH

any help in what I can do to fix this or to install it would be nice.

Thanks for your help.

You've to install a bunch of -devel packages. Start first with gcc, then run ./configure, see what is missing and go installing the other packages. I'm not familiar with Suse, but all those packages should be shipped within your CD's. Update us after you've installed gcc libraries and run ./configure again

Yep, like Megaman said, you're trying to compile a program from source but you don't have a C/C++ compiler installed or Make or any of the other tools necessary to build from source.

Okidokey..... I think I just installed the gcc stuff. Since I didn't know which one to install I just installed all of em.

Hmmmm, the shotgun effect?

which I may say is rather wierd. I thought I just picked, Install everything when I did the install.

Oh well go figure.
I still like Suse 9.0 over Redhat anyold day.

Thanks for your help and I'll try and get back in here in a few hours and see if I can install this now.
