    Are you logged in as root?
    If so:
    Looking at the problem it states is that 'There is no C compiler on $PATH'
    Run a whereis or locate on GCC.
    The enter set path=$PATH$:"the path of GCC from the whereis command" (No quotes)
    To make sure that it isn't already on the $path type just type 'set' and look for path. (I'm not sure but I think 'set path' shows the path but because I haven't tried it I wouldn't recommend it)
    You must do this from the command line.

    Chance are the gcc lib isn't installed. Wasn't on my RH. Suggest use your package manager to load it on.

    There's a way to rebuild the rpm database that should fix the crash - anyone?

    rpm --rebuilddb

    my guess for the firs tthing is u dotn have gcc isntalled. type
    rpm -qa|grep -i cc

    and check that gcc-versionnumber and libgcc-versionnumber appear

    Thanks. Lol, now I can't even get into linux. It says I have some kind of kernel error. I assume that is pretty serious.

    Can you tell us what the exact message is, and what you did before it happened? If you can remeber it, that is

    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    make install


    but now how do i open it?
    Supposing you did the stuff you was supposed to do, just "xine file". Like, "xine Free-Software-Song.ogg" would start to play that file. Just like that would you open most media files.

    Good luck
