Linux on PowerPC FAQ-O-Matic : Languages and Compilers :
How Do I Compile for C++?
|I'm a new user to LinuxPPC, and after having GREAT difficulty installing the OS, I can't seem to figure out how to execute a compiling command. Is there one in the basic package libraries, or must I install yet another piece of software?
|Try installing the make, gcc, and gcc-c++ packages (LinuxPPC 2000
comes with gcc. Later releases may come with egcs instead of gcc at
some point, in which case you'll need to install egcs and egcs-c++).
You should also install the kernel-headers package. Depending on
what you're trying to compile, you may also need various libraries'
|Usually, what you'll need to do will be: decompress the tarball that
whatever you're trying to compile came in, cd to the dir the source is in, look at the docs, and probably
run './configure' and 'make'.
