    Difficulty installing vDrift

    Hey,
    I'm a complete linux n00b so please take it easy on me =)

    I downloaded vdrift and decompressed it. I'm trying to follow the instructions but ./configure gives me this:

    Code:
    kevin@wind:~/Desktop/vdrift-2005-08-02$ ./configure
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for gawk... no
    checking for mawk... mawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking for style of include used by make... GNU
    checking for gcc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cl... no
    configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
    See `config.log' for more details.
    I checked the site and it tells me that i should ./autogen.sh
    That gives me this:

    Code:
    kevin@wind:~/Desktop/vdrift-2005-08-02$ ./autogen
    bash: ./autogen: No such file or directory
    kevin@wind:~/Desktop/vdrift-2005-08-02$ ./autogen.sh
    bash: ./autogen.sh: No such file or directory
    Can anyone help me? I'm lost, and I really wanna play

    //edit: NVM I realised I didn't have the proper libraries installed. Got it to work haha.

    Re: Difficulty installing vDrift

    You need to install gcc to compile things. Then you'll also need a slew of -dev packages (e.g. libsdl-dev) which VDrift will require you to compile against.

    To cut a long story short, wait a while because they'll release an autopackage of the next version, meaning you'll be able to install it rather than have to compile it.
