  • Hi,

       You have to install the -dev packages which contains .h files required for compilation.

    Hi there,
    I'm trying to install Bluephone but when I run, from bluephone dir, the command ./configure i receive the following:

    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for gawk... gawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
    checking for style of include used by make... GNU
    checking for gcc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cl... no
    configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
    See `config.log' for more details.

    What should I do?
    Do u have any advice?

    ciao

    • Hi Andrea,

         you have to install the gcc (GNU C Compiler) package, either with;

      apt-get install gcc (for Debian system)
      yum install gcc (for Redhat based system)
      urpmi install gcc (for Mandrake based system)

         then, re-run ./configure and gcc should be found.

    andrea@kalifornia:~/tmp/bluephone-0.2$ ./configure
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for gawk... gawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
    checking for style of include used by make... GNU
    checking for gcc... gcc
    checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler  cannot create executables
    See `config.log' for more details.

    Hi Andmer,

    When the configure stage fails and instructs you to "See 'config.log' for more details", it means that a text log file has been created.  Use 'cat config.log | more' or 'less config.log' (or even open with a Text Editor such as Gedit or VIM) to read it.

    The error message "C compiler cannot create executables" means you don't have a full "toolchain" -- all the individual libraries and apps you need to compile software on your PC.  Try installing "binutils" or derivations thereof, or read the descriptions in your favourite package manager until you find one that mentions the "basic development toolchain".

    Hope that helps.  Happy hacking!
