    MPlayer and dependencies


    What is an accpetable C Compiler? I've noticed it come up in a couple of programs I've tried installing but that would come up as my error. Most recently, I was trying to install guile-gtk-1.2-0.31/ for the MPlayer-1.0pre7.tar.

    Code:
    [josh@localhost src]$ tar -zxvf guile-gtk-1.2_0.31.orig.tar.gz

    guile-gtk-1.2-0.31/examples/tictactoe.scm
    Well, that went fine, so I decided to continue on:

    Code:
    [josh@localhost src]$ cd /usr/local/src/guile-gtk-1.2-0.31/
    [josh@localhost guile-gtk-1.2-0.31]$ ./configure
    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 gcc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cl... no
    configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

    So what do I do? All I wanted was a quicktime player! :P

    in all likelihood, when you installed Linux, it asked you if you wanted to be able to do programming and development, and you declined (I'm only guessing here). So, see if you can use your original CDs (DVD) to install the programming stuff.

    You don't mention which distro you are using, so I can't be more precise than this.

    I'm on Mandrake 9.2 Downloaded edition.

    When I installed for some reason, I could only install the first of 3 discs. Right there I'm sure thats a problem, but it wouldn't let me use those 2 discs. So is there any way I could download what is needed for this?

    Search for "easyurpmi" or something similar on google and get urpmi setup correctly. Then use urpmi to install stuff like gcc, and probably also gmake and similar.

    Code:
    Password:
    [root@localhost josh]# urpmi gcc
    Some package requested cannot be installed:
    binutils-2.14.90.0.5-2mdk.i586 (due to unsatisfied libopcodes-2.14.90.0.5.so)
    gcc-2.95.3-1owl.i386 (due to missing binutils-2.14.90.0.5-2mdk.i586) (Y/n) y
    [root@localhost josh]#
    Hmm, for some reason when I press Y and enter, nothing happenned. It just brought me back to the comand line again. Any reason as to why this might happen?

    or go to http://rpmfind.net and put in "gcc" as the search. Then download the rpm file for Mandrake (you'll want the one that is for the "i586" and not the "src" (source) one.

    Then open a terminal window and type :-

    sudo rpm -ihv filename.rpm

    -where filename.rpm is the name of the file that you downloaded.

    to install it (the password requested is your PC's root password).

    But I'm not convinced that you don't already have it. So, in KDE (the GUI) try selecting the start menu followed by system, followed by configuration followed by packaging followed by Browse or Install (will need root's password). And then see if you can find (within the Rpmdrake program) the "gcc" C compiler.

    Failing that, try looking in your install CDs for a file called "gcc-???????????.rpm" (where the "?" will be numbers and "mdk") and then use either Rpmdrake or the rpm command to install it.

    ps. just saw your latest post (done while I was writing this) and you seem to have an aweful lot missing. I wionder if you can do a refresh from your install CDs?

    Hrmm, how would I go about doing that? I've probably installed Linux around 7 times and each time (I've tried both 9.2 and 10.1 of Linux) both disc 2 and 3 don't work. It worked on a friends computer so I think it just hates me. Is there any way I could do it all in one go without the discs. Or maybe they will work now that the system is up. So how would I go about doing a refresh?

    Update: I reinstalled Linux using a different CD drive and I got everything installed. Problem Solved! \m/
