Problems with configure script on Ubuntu Feisty 7.04

Post by dawolf » 15 Jul 2007, 05:28

Hi guys.

Ok, I'm trying to install the game on Feisty by compiling it as suggested, but this is what happens when I run ./configure:

galvao@galvao-desktop ~/d/tmw-0.0.23> ./configure
checking for g++... no
checking for c++... no
checking for gpp... no
checking for aCC... no
checking for CC... no
checking for cxx... no
checking for cc++... no
checking for cl.exe... no
checking for FCC... no
checking for KCC... no
checking for RCC... no
checking for xlC_r... no
checking for xlC... no
checking for C++ compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.

What should I do?

In order to compile tmw, you have to install a compiler first. I think the relevant ubuntu package is plainly called "gcc". You will also need to install several libsomething-dev packages, whenever the configure script fails.

Installing the right dependencies (including a compiler) on Ubuntu happens to be covered on the Dependencies wiki page.
