It would help if you could quote the exact error msg and the corresponding line in the source code that generated the error.

Also, make sure you've installed gcc correctly (if already came installed, there shouldn't be any problem).

Maybe there's some specific header file that missing (ie: PCAP, libnet, etc...), which you need to download seperately (this will be mentioned in the program you're trying to compile's documentation in the REQUIREMENTS section).

Maybe you're including the wrong files (ie: in linux there isn't any conio.h)

Also, in UNIX, the directories are delimited by a '/' instead of the MS-DOS & Windows '\', which means that

#include <sys\time.h>
will be
#include <sys/time.h>
in UNIX.
