I'm on my second day of settiung up my Linux Server. The Flavor I installed is the RedHat As 2.1, I was supposed to install PostgreSQL 8.1 but when I tried doing so, it said that I do not have any valid C Compiler. I tried typing "man gcc" just to see and it appears I do not have any gcc on my box.
So I downloaded one, and when I tried to configure its prefix it said:
[root@localhost gcc-4.1.1]# ./configure --prefix="/sbin/gcc" loading cache ./config.cache checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether ln works... yes checking whether ln -s works... yes checking for gcc... no checking for cc... no configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
Any help? I couldn't quite figure out why it's now looking for cc...
I figured out that much and I have my gcc up and on it. My only mistake was that I let someone else install my RH for me so I can save time when I know that I could be wrong, and I was. It's really hard to do your own job, harder to have it done by someone else, hardest if forced to have it done by others. But the experience taught me a lot. At least I know what RPMs are by this time, and now I know that Linux is more interesting in its command line mode.
Thanks a lot, guys. :) Now can anyone tell me how to pull a command from the history list?
