Problem

I'm trying to compile a package from source, but the `./configure' command errors:

$>> ./configure
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnulibc1
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.

Environment

  • Ubuntu 6.10

Solution

Install package `build-essential':

$> sudo apt-get install build-essential
