powernowd install problem

hello, i recently switched over from mepis to suse and am having an issue. with mepis powernow d worked perfectly fine. with suse however i can not get it to install. i am using version 10.0 and the latest package from powernowd. the instructions simply call for untaring and running make then as root make install. thats it. here are my results

xemophora@linux:~/powernowd-0.96> make
gcc -O2 -Wall -o powernowd powernowd.c
make: gcc: Command not found
make: *** [powernow] Error 127

any advice? same issue if i try as root.

gcc is the C language compiler; in order to use it the programming packages must be installed. You can probably get them by going back into YaST, selecting "Software Management", then picking "Package Groups" as the filter in the popup. Look for Development->Languages->C and C++ and select everything related to gcc.

However, at a higher level I think you shouldn't need to be doing this at all, because Suse 10.0 includes the powernow package by default and should have configured it during install. One way to tell if you have it is to run this command:

lsmod | grep power

I get this:

cpufreq_powersave 1792 0
powernow_k7 8744 0
freq_table 4612 1 powernow_k7
processor 24252 2 powernow_k7,thermal

Good luck,
