Apr 17, 2008 Solving “configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables” problem

c++You ran ./configure and got “configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables”. Here is how to fix it …

You need to install c++ on your computer. even if you installed gcc that doesn’t automatically install g++. Try to run one of the following commands that fit your Linux distribution best :)

yum install gcc-c++
apt-get install gcc-c++

if apt-get doesn’t like the command try

apt-get install g++

    Please switch to english version of the post and use the code from it. Unfortunately automatic translator I use also tries to translate the code, so the code samples do not work in the versions of the post other then english.

    Good luck!
