Question these commands are not working on my server (./configure, make, make install)

Dear Friends,
I am trying to install "chpasswd.cgi" for my proxy application. so when i type command "./configure" i got the following error
"[root@ns1 root]# cd chpasswd-1.9.1/
[root@ns1 chpasswd-1.9.1]# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
[root@ns1 chpasswd-1.9.1]# "

Also "make and make install" commands are not working. my server uses "Linux-9"

I tried to install some other packages from linux cd but I am not getting the "add additional components" option rather its taking me to format option.

So plz some can help me?.

It seems you don't have gcc, make, ...(all build packages) installed.

What distro are you using?

Like Jens said, you don't appear to have the build packages that you need to compile code.

I'm assuming that by "Linux-9" you mean that you are running Red Hat Linux 9? If that's the case then you should open up your package manager which you should find under "System Settings". It's the "Add/Remove Applications" application. Here, you'll want to search around for 'gcc', and 'make'. Make sure that they are both checked and get them installed.

When this is done, the configure command should get a little bit farther. If it fails again, you are probably missing some other needed packages. You should be able to tell what those are and be able to get those installed too.

FYI, RH 9 is way out of date and not supported.
It was replaced by the RH Fedora Core series, currently at v7(!).
I strongly suggest you get an up-to-date distro; it'll make your life much easier.
