    compiling

    OK guys, heres another 1

    Was lookin at wine (for curiosities sake) so downloaded the latest source, or so it said.

    copied it to /tmp, unzipped it, went into the directory, typed ./configure and this id what i got.

    [root@Ezekiel root]# cd /tmp/wine-20020710
    [root@Ezekiel wine-20020710]# ./configure
    checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
    checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
    checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
    checking for gcc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cl... no
    configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

    ok so I gather im missin something? what and where and where/how can i fix it?
    I got all 3 rh7.3 disks. Is it something on there?

    or should i just use rpms lol :

    Well Cheers again friskydrifter

    Re:compiling

    First:
    Is gcc/g++ in your path? Type:
    whereis gcc
    and see if it's on your system.
    If that doesn't work, these may find it:
    locate gcc
    which gcc

    If it isn't on your system, you need to install it from the
    CD's that you used to install your system. If it is on your
    system, you need to add its location to your $PATH
    environment variable.

    Example:
    $>whereis gcc
    /usr/bin/gcc
    $>echo $PATH
    /bin:/usr/local/bin
    $>PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin
    $>export PATH
    $>echo $PATH
    /bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin

    In the above example, lines starting with $> indicate
    a prompt with user input, lines without a prompt indicate
    the example results of the inputs.

    Hope this helps,

    See if you have gcc installed at all.

    rpm -qa | grep gcc

    Re:compiling

    Hahahaha Christ! That was a lesson learnt not to fiddle.

    Did a rpm -qa | grep gcc - Nothin.

    tried to install the gcc rpm package but i needed some dependencies(easy enuff i thourght, they are on the disks) - then i got stuck - it was asking for the kernel-headers package. Couldnt find it on the disks, hour later i find the release notes for RedHat 7.3 (Valhalla) and it says the kernel-headers package has been replaced by glibc-kernheaders.

    Righto! found that and installed it, in with gcc - then installed the g++ without too much of a problem.

    Thinking im as clever as can be now - went into the wine directory and ./configure

    Ok all seems well - cool
    next up - make (somethin) && make (somethin else- cant remember now)

    Shit! was goin on here - gettin scared - lines and lines of text but (its cool im tellin myself) nothin really freakin out.

    Hmm 15 min later - message - last (something) failed, no disk space remaining. What the? - Panic (Knew i should have given more space for my Linux partition!!!)

    ok tried to find where the clutter was in /, couldnt! Damn - just erased some other stuff for a bit of room. thourght ah!! i'll deal with this a lil later - Shutdown.

    10 sec later - na i gotta work this out - boot OMFG! wont boot
    try single mode - nope. Screaming out curses!!!! - Thinking of boot disks and so forth - Pah! time to repartition anyway.

    Thankin myself i back up data ;D
