kernel update error

when i try to compile new kernel, namely 2.6.5, an error message appears such as:

[root@abn134-175 linux-2.6.5]# make xconfig
HOSTCC scripts/basic/fixdep
/bin/sh: line 1: gcc: command not found
make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Hata 127
make: *** [scripts_basic] Hata 2

(i use turkish mandrake 10.0 (with 3cd); however, it doesn't matter which language i use.)
(hata = error)

if i compile under redhat 9, it's ok.

i installed mandrake almost all necessary packages.

where is the problem and how can i solve ?

you need to install the developmet tools to be able to compile the kernel.

those are probably named "kernel development" or similar.

himm.. i have only 3 cds.. can it be allowed to install during normal install (what am I saying )

i mean, when we choose the packages, does it appear among the options ?

or do I have to have 4. cd ?

what you said is necessity for neither redhat nor gelecek (turkish distributions based on redhat gelecek = future)

(i'm sorry my english)

ok, i'll install , i hope it works.. i really need to update

also i have nvidia driver update problem...


does mandrake have differences ? i didn't have problems like these; however, because i couldn't install the LiLo under redhat and as a result i couldn't update the kernel (i have instructions for LiLo, not grub loader) and i don't use redhat anymore,

anyway.. i'll try

thanks a lot
