Re: Mac OSX - no c compiler

Hi - When I went to the "download gnumeric" page, I didn't see any reference to DarwinPorts, but it sounds like a better idea for me, thanks for that lead. I guess I have to figure out how to get XCode going. I searched on files with "xcode" in the name on my computer and got 930 results, so maybe its on my machine, ready to be installed. I don't have the OSX install disks, I paid $250 to have it installed on my machine rather than go through that nightmare. I will contact the people who installed it, maybe they will know how to get it working, unless there are any other ideas? Thanks for any help.

I'm not really a mac guy but I've heard rumours to the effect that you need to install something called "xcode" from your OSX install disks. This should provide gcc & friends.
Compiling gnumeric yourself might be doing things the hard way, given the library dependencies. Again merely rumour but isn't there darwin ports or fink that have a binary all ready to go for you?
Good luck

Hi - well, my computer crashed, I have upgraded to OS X v10.6.1 and I guess I have to reinstall gnumeric from scratch. Im really not good at this stuff. I downloaded gnumeric from, and have begun installing the seven libraries. From the same site, I dowloaded  glib-2.24.0.tar.gz, and then cd to the glib-2.24.0 folder, type
./configure and get "configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH". Can anyone suggest my next step? Thanks for any help
