gcc compiler

I'm trying to install gcc & g++ but I get an error when I try to ./configure saying that I don't have a compiler installed.  It tries to use cc, but it's not installed and I have no clue what compiler is installed.  The system is SCO Openserver.  I find it stupid that I can't install a compiler because I don't have a compiler.

Well, to build a compiler (or anything else) from source you'd certainly have to already have a compiler installed. But there are other options, like installing a binary distribution of Gcc. Take a look at http://www.caldera.com/skunkware/#gcc for pre-built binaries.

BTW: you have two copies of thise question and shoul go to Community Support and ask to have one of them deleted.

Okay, I've got it installed, but it only runs from /usr/local.  I guess I need to link it.  Can someone tell me how to link it.

You don't want to "link it". What you want to do is to add /usr/local/bin to your path.

If you are using bash, sh, or ksh you could do that interactively by:

PATH=/usr/local/bin:$PATH; export PATH

and for csh or tcsh do:

set path (/usr/local/bin $path)

To arrainge for the path to be set at login you'll need to modify your shell init scripts to include one of the above.
