    ./configure dun work


    i am a newbie in linux, in fact i just started today using fc3. i was trying to install a xine when i got the below errors
    checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
    checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
    checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for gawk... gawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking for style of include used by make... GNU
    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.
    does this means tat i have to install gcc, cc, cl? in fact i found with most stuff tat i downloaded from sites, i could not do the above if the instructions requires me to..
    i just downloaded the gcc, but it seems to take forever to extract.. is there another way? or am i doing it the wrong way?

    Yes you do need to download gcc, I recomend downloading gcc as a rpm and installing it that way.

    To install a package:
    Code:
    rpm –ivh
    ex. rpm -ivh somepackage.1.1-4.i386.rpm
    replace the package name with the gcc package name

    FC3 CDs should have gcc RPMs.
    Just have to install them.

    Install them all as
    Code:
    #rpm -ivh gcc*.rpm
    This should take care of the dependency problems.
