Package management

Im still learning about managing packages. I downloaded the latest version of XMMS since the other had no MP3 support, and I was hoping that this version im trying to install fixes that. I first tried installing the tar packaged and this is what I got.

[ultima@pcp04137489pcs Downloads]$ cd xmms-1.2.9
[ultima@pcp04137489pcs xmms-1.2.9]$ ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for prefix by checking for xmms... /usr/bin/xmms
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
The second package I tried was the RPM package that redhat was suspose to detect and automatically install, but when I double clicked it, it asks for my root password. I enter it in and nothing happens.

EDIT: Solved.

You should post the results or your findings on your fixes. It helps other members browsing to find solutions if they encounter the same problem, etc.

And with XMMS for anyone who doesn't know.. with Redhat you need to install mp3 support with the mpg321 package.

And for that error you were getting, its just clearly stating that you don't have a c compiler installed on your system.
