    Problem configuring GCC 3.1.1 on Mandrake 8.2

    Hello people,

    I was trying to install GCC3.1.1 on Mandrake 8.2, following the instructions that came with the package that i downloaded from GNU web site.

    Well it fails to configure itself as because it needs CC or GCC to compile some sources and i do not have it on Mandrake installed (that's why i am installing it).
    Chicken or egg? who comes first?

    The instructions point out that i should set the environment variables or my path with CC, How? I am new to Linux, just learning so far, the same for C.

    Than as i can't go forward from the config step i can't build it and i can't keep going with my lessons (using a couple of tutorials downloaded from AO and another found on the internet)

    Some light is welcome,
    Thanks in advance,

    Tudo que rela relativo!!!
    www.ebittner.net with you SOON

    A compiler should have come with your linux distribution.
    Did you install from a CDrom? Look for it there. Once it is installed,
    It will be available to compile the newer version.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.
