Description Travis Roy 2000-03-09 00:29:25 EST
creating cache ./config.cache
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot
create executables.

This happens with any program.

Look at config.log in the top level directory. You probably need to
install some other packages like glibc-devel in order to compile.
Comment 2 Travis Roy 2000-03-09 10:42:59 EST
This is confirmed on more then two machines, it seems to happen when you don't
install the development packages at inital install. After installed gcc, cpp,
ecgs or anything like that it give the "C compiler cannot create executables"
error. even when you install all at once like "rpm -i egcs*.rpm binutils*.rpm
Comment 3 Travis Roy 2000-03-09 10:47:59 EST
After installing Kernel headers and glibc-devel, that fixed the problem
