I've been trying to install wxGTK latest release to run an app that I must compile.
The wxGTK file is .rpm. The app source came in .tgz but is also available .rpm. One of the few minimum requirements for this particular application is wxGTK.
First problem I encounter is installing wxGTK from emelFM. The install box asks for a pass, I type it in and hit enter, then it outputs END.
I don't think it was installed.
I have tried installing from Bash without much idea what's
really going on. I would prefer a console install, but I'm not so familiar with Linux consoles.
The other problem comes up trying to compile. I have the .tgz source files unpacked in a directory. I enter Bash, root,
cd appdir, then input ./configure.
The output is:

checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... cc
checking for C compiler default output... conftest.c
checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.

? I'm totally green in Linux, any input will probably help.
The main issue is with wxGTK, as I'm not sure what all's
involved with adding this. I suppose the easiest thing to
do is use a wxWindows/GTK based distro, but I like DSL. The rub is that I don't really need wxGTK for anything but
the one program.

Probably your best bet would be to compile it on another Debian based PC and then move the binaries over.  DSL doesn't have gcc.
