You were almost there, in order to install bittorrent, you need python, but in order to install python you need to download and install a c compiler (cc). Once you do this, the ./configure command should be able to find it and will continue.

Not sure what distribution you are using (there is usually always a .deb or .rpm or distribution specific package for the c compiler) but as a last resort it can be downloaded from the gnu gcc home page

i got the c complier but now i have this prob
configure:2339: result: conftest.s
configure:2344: checking whether the C compiler works
configure:2350: ./conftest.s
./configure: line 1: ./conftest.s: Permission denied
configure:2353: $? = 126
configure:2362: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
See `config.log' for more details.

Seems to me that you're likely going to more trouble than you need to-- there are few, if any distributions where you need to compile python from scratch, and the fact that you are doing so makes me suspect that you are starting off on the wrong foot.

What distribution are you using (please fill it in in your profile as well)?

And Python doesn't exist in YAST? Have you configured YAST to point to your nearest SuSE online repository (since if you're using SuSE Personal, it's probably not on the CD's)?

If you don't know how to add sources to YAST, take a look at these threads:

SuSE Linux Forums > Adding Http/ftp Install Sources In Yast
LinuxQuestions.org - Sticky Request: YaST Update sources

(first two hits on a Google Linux search for 'add sources to YAST')
