Installing Asterisk

Hi,

I'm installing Asterisk on a Fedore Core 2 server, I've only just started tinkering with linux, don't know that much yet. I've tried using the YUM commands but it says it doesn't exist (anyway I can download this, instructions etc?) and I've now come to install Asterisk and the error I get is:

# checking for gcc... gcc
# checking whether the C compiler (gcc -O6 ) works... no
# configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.
# make: *** [editline/libedit.a] Error 1

I've had a look around this site, I'm assuming I need to download the C compiler, but erm.... unfortunately I don't know how to do that! lol
I'm a PHP developer, but never touched Linux before... But I'm very keen to learn and would greatly appreciate any help, would give away more points if I could!

Thanks,
Ross

You need to install the compiler.  Here are the packages you need to install gcc, glic-kernheaders, cpp, binutils,glibc-headers and glibc-devel.

The yum command would be 'yum install gcc'.  If that is not working here's a Core 3 tutorial that is pretty step by step from scratch.

If you would rather just download rpms then the ATrpms repository contains the relevent rpms and works with yum, you will need to register the repository with yum by adding a new file in the /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory, instructions for this can be found from the website http://atrpms.net/  this means that you can install  your own os and just get the base asterisk files without all the extra clutter from trixbox, you will then need to run "yum install asterisk asterisk-addons asterisk-sounds"
