Trubble installing Emacs 21.4


Hello,

Just installed Fedora Core earlier today and must say that i am a new linux user.

Anyway, trying to install Emacs 21.4, it seams that I have some trubble with $PATH... after running ./configure i get this error message:

[root@localhost emacs-21.4]# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
[root@localhost emacs-21.4]#

I also got a simular error when trying to install Apache 2 earlier (that still remains a problem). Anyone have an idea why this might be happening?

Thank you.

You might not have installed any development tools?



Cheers,

Probably... are you thinking about any specific development tools?

Why do one need development tools to install programs in linux??

Thanks.

You need to have a compiler installed if you want to compile software. As root, do
Code:
#yum install gcc
That should install your compiler. You may need aditional packages but your ./configure script will tell you whats missing.

After reading your post again, I realised that it would be simpler for you to install emacs using yum. As root do,
Code:
#yum install emacs
You won't have to compile it from source.
