    Help installing linux


    Hello, I'm new to Linux of course and I'm running Mandriva 2006. I'm trying to install apache and I follow the steps in the INSTALL file, and I get the following error.

    checking for chosen layout... Apache
    checking for working mkdir -p... yes
    checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
    checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
    checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

    Is there something that I'm doing wrong, or maybe something that I missed? Thanks in advance for the help guys.

    You need the gcc package. I'm not sure if Mandriva uses a package manager but if it doesn't you can get it here http://gcc.gnu.org/

    It would also probably be a good idea to install the make and glibc packages while you're at it since it looks like you're building apache from scratch.
