    You'll need to have GCC (the c compiler) installed. You'll probably find it on your installation CDs.

    The command to unmount is "umount". And, no, I have no idea what disk it is on. I've never used Mandrake, sorry.

    Doesn't mandrake come with a installation program? In there, you should be able to just check development tools or something like that.
    If you can't find that, these are the packages that I think you will need:
    • gcc
      gcc-c++
      glibc-devel

    You might need some additional *-devel packages depending on the program in question. They will probably complain about it so that you will see it.

    How do you mean "isn't working"? In what way doesn't it work?
    Of course, you can download GCC from GNU's home page, but that won't do you much good, since you will need to have it installed in order for it to compile itself. That's why you need Mandrake's binary distributions of it, which is in those RPMs.

    hi,

    most probably you will need gcc,ar,make and nm...these should have come in a package called libutils or somethg..I'm not sure...a friend of mine was facing the same problem and he installed one package with all the utilities and he was all ready to go...

    Oh yeah, that's right, of course. You'll need binutils as well (not libutils).
