    I have followed the instructions in the readme and typed make oldconfig which worked fine. I then typed in "make dep" and got this error:

    gcc-3.3 -Wall -Wstrict-prtotoytpes -02 -fomit-frame-pointer -o scripts/mkdep scri pts/mkdep.c
    make: gcc-3.3:Command not found
    make: *** [scipts/mkdep] Error 127


    Is this becuase i have gcc 4 installed and not gcc 3.3? Do I need to change the make file in some way?

    I have been trying to figure this out but because i am a newbie to linux I don't know what this error means!!!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!:eek:

    I don't know if it's the right package, but you can try
    Code:
    apt-get install gcc-3.3-base
    But if it wants to remove other important packages, you should decide not to install it.
