Firstly I have NAS with linux installed. It is a 586 and the linux came from the vendor nicely packaged without an RPM or a C compiler. So I am in the same boat as the original post.
How can I use the "toy-compiler" you touched on? And which file would I compile to re-compile it all with =)
I've got gcc-4.3.3 version unpacked on my box... just not compiled =)
I really appreciate your help,
You guys need to be telling us what Linux distributions you are using.
All the (main-line) distributions I've used allow gcc to easily be installed through the package manager that came with the distribution (apt, synaptic, and assorted graphical GUI's). Figure out how to open your package manager and do a search for 'gcc.'
If you don't know how to use your package manager, tell us which distro you are using and we'll tell you how to access it.
(Of course, I recognize that there are a few freaky mini-distributions that don't have package managers or on-line repositories.)
