hi, first of all im noob in what matter to linux.
ive installed DSL in my harddrive, had no problem
with hardware, great dist so far.

still, i was downloading software such as ircII or
XChat, i unpacked using Emelfm, then i used the
terminal do /configure and make.

dunno why, but every time i try to configure, it says
that the C compiler couldnt create the executables.

also, i tried using Make, but apparently this dist does
not have it. i installed apt-get, i run the program and
tried to download/install make, but at the end of the
download, again, it gives me an error.. so i havent been
able to install make either.

could someone please explain me, or give me a url
with docs or even some application to install the software?

thank you for your time
