Re: [linrad] linrad installation problem

Hi Rien,

Arie pointed in the right direction. Indeed the gcc is missing.
Nice to know that installations are not complete....

I downloaded a gcc and tried the installation. It asks for a cc (another
compiler!) in order to install the compiler!?.

This incomplete Linux stuff is driving me crazy!!

I will have to find a "Linux-nerd"  to help me, because this is getting me
