    Error when Installing plugger


    Ok, I downloaded plugger-5.1.3 hoping to view quicktime files in Opera. However i get this when I start the install
    Code:
    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.
    Same problem whether logged in as root or local user. Now I'm fine when an install works, but most errors are beyond me, and this has me stumped. I don't even know how to view config.log where is it? or what command will bring it up?

    Any ideas to get this running?

    Using SuSe 10.0 BTW

    Well, it seems that you do not have gcc, you would most likely have to install it form the install cd or download it. I can't tell you how to do this because i don't use Suse, but i think you can get it through Yast or something

    you can simply call your favorite editor like this:
    Code:
    $ gedit config.log
    if you scoll the text to the end you'll see what the problem is all about in full details.

    You simply need to install a compiler (gcc in this case) to compile the program. You will be able to get it through Yast.

    Now it looks like things are getting interesting, according to Yast gcc is already installed! Therefore it won't let me try to do it again.

    config.log reads as follows
    Code:
    It was created by configure, which was
    generated by GNU Autoconf 2.57.  Invocation command line was
    
      $ /home/lisa/plugger-5.1.3/configure

    Again it says gcc isn't there yet Yast says it is?
