Install GCC on ClarkConnect

Install GCC on ClarkConnect

This is a pretty easy thing to do, but it seems many people come to Yet Another Linux Blog searching for exactly how to do this. ClarkConnect does not come with GCC installed by default. If you download software and attempt to compile it (using ./configure, make, make install) it will complain:

configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH<br />
See `config.log' for more details.

So, SSH into your ClarkConnect server and install cc-devel to install all the tools you need. Please be advised, it’s a rather large package weighing in at 87.5 MB when I installed it today.

apt-get update

apt-get install cc-devel

After this package is installed, you should be able to compile software from source. Hopefully, this makes your life easier and is easier to find on the web.
