I am having a heck of time install Quanta, I'm not sure why.
I have navigated to the unpackaged directory which is:
/home/brentaserio/Download/quanta-3.1.1-kde30 (Opened Terminal Here)
I ran ./configure then it said no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
what is this about?
You don't have a c++ compiler to build the source code... I'm not a Madriva's user, but AFAIK, it's possible to use a package manager to install software... or, if that is not possible, download a RPM package and install it manually (googling mandriva rpm quanta should be enough :D )
There is no need to compile Quanta from source. Just install the kdewebdev package using urpmi (or rpmdrake if you prefer a GUI).
I dont have the kdeweb thing on that list. I also tried to search for it and could not fine it.
You probably need to enable the various main, contrib, plf and updates repos for your version of Mandriva using the instructions available at Easyuprmi.
