    if i use ./configure the error is "nosuch file or directory"


    i tried to install a tar.gz file
    first i used tar -xzvf <filename>, it worked fine
    and after changing to that directory like cd <filename>.
    i used ./configure then it is giving error message as "no such file or directory".
    what could be the problem, is it with the software i downloaded? or with my compiler?
    thank you,

    There is no config file as you can see.
    So get on with
    # make
    as a Makefile is present.

    Download GCC 4.3.0 for Linux - gcc is the GNU Compiler Collection. - Softpedia
    This is the link.
    The installation procedure is same. Read the INSTALL and README files in the package.

    did you read the "readme" file?
    it should tell you how to install or where to look for information regarding installation
    Linux and me it's a love story

    Which Package are you trying to install? I would suggest you to use Package Manager for package installation.
    Which version of Fedora/RedHat are you using?
    Open Terminal/Konsole and execute this to install gcc :
    Code:
    su -
    yum -y install gcc gcc-c++
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
