Postby imtiazahmad_khan » Sun Jun 08, 2003 9:28 pm

dear members
asalamo alaikum,
i have download a driver for my DVB card.
which is in the form of a tar.gz file.
firstly i use this command
tar -xvzf filename
then
./configure
when i run this command it shows following results.
so that i can't use make install command.
plz tell me how can i solve this problem.

[root@localhost pentanet-RH7x-2.3.0]# ./configure
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... (cached) /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... (cached) 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 for gcc... (cached) gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.

Dear Imtiaz
what u need is the development side of linux. install autoconf, automake and gcc. in linux 8.0 and up this is pretty easy as it installs itself the required package. just check what is missing. u need automake to generate the make file for make and make install to work after ./configure

Regards
Zaeem
