    ubuntu .configure


    Hello, nice site and everything.

    I would like to know when I type in the terminal .configure it gives me this:

    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for gawk... no
    checking for mawk... mawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking for gcc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cl... no
    configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
    See `config.log' for more details.

    What's wrong?

    Thank You =)

    Firstly, welcome aboard.

    That error means you are lacking a C compiler. You need to install something called GCC. You can open up something called Synaptic and do a search for it.

    Alternately (and quicker), open a terminal and type 'sudo apt-get install gcc'

    Your welcome.

    Assuming you are still using Ubuntu (I notice your distro says Suse), you should look at this page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AptGetHowto?...ct=AptGetHowTo

    Apt will make installing programs much much easier.
