Hello,

I'a newbie. I've downloaded a few programs from the net and as I try to install them (./configure) I get this message:

creating cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... (cached) yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

or this:

creating cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for gnome-config... no
checking for gnomeConf.sh file in /usr/local/lib... not found
configure: error: Could not find the gnomeConf.sh file that is generated by gnome-libs install

I know it must sound like something very simple, but I've already tried everything I could... Can anyone help me? Do I need any extra libs? Where do I find them? Just give me a hint or something...

Thanks!

Well, I was able to find most of the libs I needed... I still get this line:

checking for working makeinfo... missing

but now I guess I'm in the right track... Does anyone know where I can find this makeinfo file???

Thanks anyways. biggrin.gif

Makeinfo is a program that converts TeXinfo files into Info files. You can find the program in the package "texinfo" which should come with every distribution. Check your cd, or the net.
