ok i am new to linux (no surprise i'm here then). I am trying to install various programs on my RedHat 9.0 Linux. One of them is Lynx (the text based web-browser). So i read the insytuctions on how to install. It says do the following:


so i open terminal command line, go to the lynx directory and type that in. But aftr i but in ./configure all this stuff comes up but mainly:

checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
confiure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

so i try typing in make and this comes up:

make: ** No targets specified and no make file found. Stop.

I also downloaded other programs and they tell to install along same lines, but every time when i run configuren and ,ake similar stuff comes up!

Can someone explain to me how all this works and why these errors come up.

gcc which is the compiler is not installed.

Look at RH configuration GUI for installing apps. You want to install the development package which includes all of the stuff required for compiling and installing programs.

Could be the programs you downloaded are on the installation CDs and already configured. I know lynx is.
