    ./configure failure


    checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
    configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check

    That is what I get with the ./configure for Xchat and KVirc both. Am useing Mandrake 10.1 I have checked to see if cpp is in the /lib directory and there in a link to another folder that links to another folder that has cpp in it. Any ideas on how to resolve this?

    why don't you remove the intermediate link from /lib/cpp to /link/number/one to /real/cpp/location and just do:
    Code:
    rm /lib/cpp
    ln -s /real/cpp/location /lib/cpp
    also check your configure.log for further details

    I didn't resolve my problem but I did find a site that had a few rpm's I could use for what I wanted at that particular moment. I would still like to know what was going wrong on my attempt to configure... Didn't even get to the compile, heh.
