gcc error when installing usb wireless for redhat 9


When i make all, i encountered this error:

make [3]: gcc: command not found
make [3]: *** [callbacks.o] Error 127
make [3]: Leaving directory `/usbwireless/atmelwlandriver/src/usb`
make [2]: *** [rfmd] Error 2
make [2]: Leaving directory `/usbwireless/atmelwlandriver/src/usb`
make [1]: *** [all] Error 1
make [1]: Leaving directory `/usbwireless/atmelwlandriver/src/usb`
make: *** [all] Error 1

However when i do a search my i saw two files in /usr/bin:

I tried to rename the above to gcc, now there is not such error as above but there was a compliation error.

So do i need to install another version of gcc for the compilation for work for the installation of the atmel drivers?

Can anyone please help?

hmm... instead of typing make all, try doing:

make CC=/usr/bin/i386-redhat-linux7-gcc all

the CC flag tells make which C compiler to use.

I'm trying the same thing cept on Debian.

What I noticed about yours is the 'gcc not found' line. Make, to my knowledge, is looking for the gcc. I went through a process of uninstalling my 2.95 version of gcc and installing version 3.0.4. Well, make could not find gcc. No wonder, the command was gcc-3.0 so I renamed it to gcc and ran make again. That worked. Still getting all the same parse errors as I did when I originally started trying to compile the atmelwlandriver.

What the hell is a parse error anyway?
