Sorry, I had been under the (obviously mistaken) impression
that since I had the latest release of Mandrake, that it would
have a (default) C compiler that actually compiled basic things
like the kernel.
Crazy... we still have to have 2 different C compilers!
I thought this was just a bug in what was it Redhat 6 or something?
Why on earth are we still suffering this?
And thanks for the swift response!
