GCC4.0 Problem Solved

August 18, 2007

I’m in the process of installing Ruby, Rails, Subversion, Mongrel and MySQL on the MacBook Pro. Problems reared up fairly early into the new and improved process I originally followed from HiveLogic (which, btw, I highly recommend).

So, here’s what I was running up against while installing readline via the terminal:

C compiler cannot create executables

There’s nothing readily available via Google. So, it dawned on me… My default compiler was showing GCC3.3. Well, that’s obviously out of date. So, I peformed this

sudo gcc_select 4.0

And, now, my readline has configured and completed its make just fine. And, 25 minutes later still I’m full tilt gonzo. Awesome!
