Re: Even after I install ALL the 'Devel' packages, still receive "no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH" error

Hello World!!!

I've installed all the Devel packages, plus a few extra.

However, whenever I try to compile a Linux tool with: ./configure, I
get the following output;

chip@panarchy /cygdrive/n/rancid-2.3.2

See `config.log' for more details.

Here is an ls of my /usr/bin folder:

Please tell me how I can get rancid to compile through cygwin.

'gcc' comes from one of the 'gcc*-core' packages. I'd recommend reading and
following the problem reporting guidelines found at the link below if you need to
follow-up with the list on this issue.


PS: I've also tried install MinGW, to no avail.

That's a separate issue that you'd need to take up with the MinGW folks if you feel there's something wrong there.
