    Compiler Issue GCC


    Hello Guys,

    I've got my SlackWare box up and running this evening using the Newbie install to try and keep things as minimal as possible, and everything seems to be running nicly.

    One problem i have is when trying to run ./configure to compile my programs i get the following error.

    'Error: C Compiler cannot create executables'

    I have the GCC package installed so i'm not sure what is causing the issue, does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    You would need to install a package called "glibc" or something similar, as well as "binutils" if you didn't already installed it.

    Thanks for that buddy, i'll give it a go.

    Do you per chance know where those packages are stored on the installation CD? Section A, AD, N, K ... ?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    I guess it should be in the "D" section, or perhaps the "L" one :
