C compiler cannot create executables

#1 Post by Red-guy »

I am trying to install/configure WINE....downloaded the source from wineHQ and when I tried to configure I get as follows:

Computer:/home/user/Desktop/wine-0.9.28# ./configure
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... gcc -m32
checking for C compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables


OK, what did I (am I) doing wrong?

AMD-64 Athlon3000+
512 RAM
linux-2.19.1
Etch/Sid :?

I see you are on AMD64

Try apt-get install libc6-dev-amd64 and see what happens

Similar error for an Ubuntu user on AMD64 trying to compile Wine here
