need help compiling Audacity on Suse 10.2

I have been trying to follow the instructions on the CompilingAudacityForBeginers Wiki page.

I got an error on the configure command in step 3. Output says:

checking for gcc… no
checking for cc… no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

I know the error means that I don’t have a compiler installed in my path. But why do I not have a compiler after doing a standard install of Suse 10.2? Do I need to change the path? Did Suse leave the compiler out on purpose? Do I need to install a compiler too? How can I get around this? There is no help for this in the Wiki.

Thanks, zoni

That’s because all the questions you are asking are SuSE specific, and not audacity specific. Yes, you need to install a C and C++ compiler in order to compile audacity. You should either have GCC on your install disks, or be able to download it from the web and install it. Try a SuSE forum for more help if you don’t know how to do this.

Thanks for the help!
