ohh, ill get g++ because thats what it mentions somewhere in the config.log

and oh yeah, ima genius for attaching it eh? :P, mostly XD

after i get the compiler, do i just run ./configure again?

EDIT: i couldnt find G++ or build essentials but when i searched for build essentials a loooooong list of things popped up, anyone know which i should use, well, which would work firstly lol

I don't know linpus, so i can't help that much - only thing i found in the web is the following command:

Code: Select all

sudo yum -y install build-essentials
but if your distro have no such meta-package (means that one packet installs more then one program),
you maybe have to install the needed Programs one by one. But it would wonder me...

The progs (maybe) needed are:

Code: Select all

autoconf
automake
bin86
binutils
binutils-devel
bison
compat-libtool
cpp
cvs
e2fsprog-devel
fdupes
flex
gcc
gcc-c++
gcc-info
gdbm-devel
gettext-tools
glibc-devel
glibc-info
gmp-devel
gperf
libaio-devel
libstdc++-devel
m4
make
patch
pkg-config
rcs
subversion
texinfo
zlib-devel
This is the list what build-essentials would install for me. You maybe don't need each of the packets,
but I don't know which ones u exactly need. The names may differ a bit on your system.

Good luck ;)

a lot of them things didnt download :(, if theres anyone else here on fedora or linpus, what did they use to compile? lol, because there might be a compiler on the repositories

if i was to search there (for anyone) would i search for something like compiler or c++ compiler or something? :P

thanks for all the answers so far

Maybe it installed g++ to somewhere strange (eg, not in the searchpathes)

try "which g++"
if this doesn't tells you where it was installed, try
"find / -name 'g++' -print" to see where it went to.
If this too does't finds anything, your install was bad.

Try open a terminal, enter "gc" and hit the TAB key twice. This should offer you a list with all commands starting with "gc". You should see something like "gcc" and "gcc-4.3" (or another version number) in the list. If you find that, gcc ist installed.

please run the configure script again. If it throws out any error, please restart it in the following way:

./configure > output.txt

This will create a file called "output.txt", which you can append here.
But if you're still missing make, its clear you miss something ;)

btw.: Nearly everybody i read about with that netbook has erased the linpus and installed a different distribution...
Maybe that would the best solution, but i don't know your skills in installing & configuring Linux ;)

these are what appear with your suggestion of searching for it terwarf:
gcc gcj-dbtool gconftool-2
gccmakedep gconf-merge-tree gcov

its there but the 4.3 thing isnt, i tried yum installing it but it wasnt a package or someting lol

and to be honest i dont know how good i am at installing a different distro but id imagine fairly terrible lol because im having trouble with a game XD

also, jeto, sorry but your suggestion didnt work :( thanks anyway though lol

Ok - so compiler is installed.
Now whats the output if u change into the source folder and run

./configure

? Again, to post the output here run

./configure > output.txt

and post the file output.txt here... :roll:

anyway here it is, its a lot shorter than the config.log so i dont understand how much it can help lol

Humm - okay.
Seems you have the C Compiler installed, but what u need is the C++ Compiler, named "g++".
(You can also look in Terminal for with by entering "g+" and hit TAB key twice, like with gcc before)
(For me on SuSE, the package you need is called "gcc-c++"). Please search for that package first and
install it.

then run the configure script again with the following command:

./configure 2>&1 | tee output.txt

(This will create the log file and show the output on screen too)
