    Installing GnuPG

    Hello all. Right up front let me stress I am noob at this.

    Currently I am running Ubuntu 8.04LT and I am trying to install GnuPG, but I am running into some difficulty.

    I downloaded the BZ2 file and extracted the contents. I went into Terminal and navigated to the now extracted gnupg directory and ran ./configure, but I am receiving an error. Below are the last few lines from Terminal:

    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for gcc... gcc
    checking for C compiler default output file name...
    configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
    See `config.log' for more details.


    I have attached the log file. Can anyone help in getting this squared away. Thank you to all those who read and/or reply.

    1]Please don't attach Word files.
    2]You don't need to compile and install,GnuPG is available in Synaptic.
    3]If you still want to compile and install,you need to install the tools for building,
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential

    Re: Installing GnuPG

    I apologize for the DOC file, but it was a supported extension and log is not.

    The code you provided me did work and allowed me to properly run ./configure

    Thank you for your response.

    In regards to Point 2, I have no idea what synaptic is.

    System>>Administration>>Synaptic Package Manager.Rather System>>Help and Support>>Adding and removing software in the left pane.You don't need to always compile software in Linux.This is 2008,not 1988.
