gcc library installed not found


configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

I get the above error when trying to configure xine. I know that all the c++ libraries are installed because I just installed suse and ran the update packages right after the install, and if I check in Yast for glibc, gcc etc packages it says they are there, and yet I get this message. I would try to find out where they are and put that in the $PATH, but I get the error:

. something changed during find and it stops

here is my $PATH info

PATH=/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin


Any help would be great

thanks

"configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH"

Some configure scripts refer to the C compiler as cc. Check the error messages ahead of the one you posted to see if cc is what is missing. If that is the problem then make a symbolic link from cc to gcc. You can find out where gcc is with:
which gcc
On my machine gcc is in /usr/bin so I would add cc with this command:

ln -s gcc /usr/bin/cc

Well, it is actually looking for either and it finds neither gcc nor cc. I used the find files in the menu, don't know why I didn't think of that before, and searched for gcc throughout the partition. It didn't find it anywhere. I guess I could get the rpm and manually install it, but I don't understand why Yast would say I have and it and pretend to install it if I don't. Any thoughts?

I hate to have to install all the packages manually, but will if I have to.

thanks

" I don't understand why Yast would say I have and it and pretend to install it if I don't."

I don't know what the problem with YaST might be. You can check to see what packages you have installed with:

rpm -qa | sort | less

and gcc in particular:

rpm -qi gcc | less

If rpm shows that gcc is installed then also run:

which gcc

to see if the compiler executable actually exists.

Those queries don't find gcc so it must not be installed. Glibc is. It looks like Yast is not perfect, but who is I guess. Thanks for the help. i will just download the individual rpms.
