Creative sound card driver installation help plz!
Alright first off Im useing Ubuntu 8.04 this is my first time useing any distro of linux. It was an easy install and everything came togather without a hitch execpt for my sound.
I have a creative sb x-fi extreme gamer sound card, creative made a linux driver for it and Im trying to install it but haveing some difficulty.
The website i got it from was http://opensource.creative.com/soundcard.html
What I have done so far is first i installed Alsa from the package manager, then i created a folder in the home folder called "Videocard" then i unpacked the download and placed it in the Videocard folder.
The instructions simply say to "run ./installer as root in the terminal" so thats what i did, i typed
It starts to install but then I get this error :
Installation is in progress. Please wait...
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.
make: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [install] Error 2
I have no idea what to do, if anyone has already installed this or knows how to please help me out.
