Problem configuring


I just installed Red Hat 9 and I've downloaded a few programs and tried to install them, but whenever I try to configure one it says something like this...

[root@localhost gtk+-2.2.2]# ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for working aclocal-1.4... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake-1.4... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
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

I tried downloading gcc, but it does the same thing. I've also tried using the RPM off my installation CDs but it gets half way through the "Preparing System Update" process then quits. Can someone please help me?

You did not install the development environment. Open the add or remove programs installer, and install the development packages, that would include GCC (the compiler), autoconf, automake, etc.

Ok, I tried that, but it told me that it could not locate some required packages.

Unlocatable package | Required by
krb5-libs = 1.2.7-10 krb5-devel
openssl = 0.9.7a-2 openssl-devel

did you look at rpmfind.net or freshrpms? Although that is strange. Did you get the message after you tried to install the software again or during the loading of the devel environment?

I got the message when it finished checking dependencies. I tried freshrpms, but now the problem with the rpm that I mentioned in the first post is happening with all rpms. Grrrrrr.

what are you trying to install. The first thing I mean. What was the initial software pkg that gave you problems?

I haven't been able to compile anything at all.The first rpm that gave me any trouble was the gcc rmp from my installation cd. Now no rpms are working except the rpm for gaim. They all get to "Reading individual package headers" then they just quit.
