PCLinux OS and Ktorrent
First of all let me apologize for the dumb questions I'm about to ask.
I am new to Linux so I decided to go with the most windows like version PCLinux to make it an easier transition. The problem is that I don't know any of the coding for Linux.
I want to install several things that I have found and downloaded for example:
1- Ktorrent - I have version 2.1.2 and I downloaded the source code but when I go to the console and follow the installation steps I get this right after the ./configure step:
[root@localhost ktorrent-2.1.2]# ./configure

checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu

checking for -p flag to install... yes
checking whether build environment is sane... yes

checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
This are the steps as I got them from ktorrent site:
How to compile
Compiling and installing from the source code goes as follows : (replacing X.Y by the correct version number)
tar -xvzf ktorrent-X.Y.tar.gz
The other things I would like to have on Linux that I used a lot on windows are:
3- WinAVI (This is a video converter so I can create DVD movies.)
Do they come for Linux? If not are there any equivalents?
Thank you in advance for your help with this issue.
Have you tried APT to install KTorrent?
2- Roxio -- Install K3b
3- WinAVI -- Try QDVDAuthorPut your hand in an oven for a minute and it will be like an hour, sit beside a beautiful woman for an hour and it will be like a minute, that is relativity. --Albert Einstein

Thanks a bunch. I was being stupid I guess, because I found Synaptic installed on my computer and that thing installs most of the software automatically.
Now I am really loving my PCLinux not to mention Beryl... I mean God! This looks awesome!
Thanks for your pointers regarding the other apps I will give them a try.
