    [SOLVED] fc9 wireless problem


    just got fc9 installed on my laptop, but couldnt get the wireless internet to work. looked around and found this website:
    b43 - Linux Wireless

    wget http://bu3sch.de/b43/fwcutter/b43-fwcutter-011.tar.bz2
    tar xjf b43-fwcutter-011.tar.bz2
    cd b43-fwcutter-011
    make

    was doing fine till I got down to "make" where I got an error message:

    [root@armisael b43-fwcutter-011]# make
    cc -Os -fomit-frame-pointer -std=c99 -Wall -pedantic -D_BSD_SOURCE -DFWCUTTER_VERSION_=011 -c -o fwcutter.o fwcutter.c
    make: cc: Command not found
    make: *** [fwcutter.o] Error 127

    cant really figure out what I did wrong, any help would be great, thanks

    Which distro are you using?

    It looks like you don't have a compiler (which is normal for a lot of distros), but it will be an easy enough job to fix that. Just let us know which distro you're using, and we'll see if we can help.

    hi,


    install gcc. run the following command
    Code:
    su -
    yum -y install gcc gcc++
    i supposed that you have a repository that contains development tools. if you dont have any valid repository you can add Livna by going to the next page
    livna autoinstaller and click "Fedora 9 repository RPM"
    Linux and me it's a love story
