Trying to install Apache 2 - error: no acceptable C compiler...

New to Linux...

Trying to install Apache 2.0 and am receiveing this error after unzipping and attempting to install: "no acceptable C compiler found in $Path."

I suppose this is obvious? I have no C compiler, but what to do now? I was under the assumption that Mandrake 8.1 would have the C compiler already.

Thanks for any help here.

The problem is that you haven't installed your development environment yet. Mandrake, like all distros, is shipped with GNU's C and C++ compiler, along with make. Search your CD's. -mk
