Hello all
I am using Puppy linux(1.0.7). Its really cool. I like its size and spped of running linux. Thats why I also tried to compile a little application, to test the performance of that. But when I configure's, it gives me error like " Checking whether c compiler works ...no" .
and when i gives command at prompt ,
gcc
then it tells "command not found".

so its clear that gcc is not installed.

Now the question is from where can I get gcc and g++ compiler ?
I mean from where to download?
Waiting for reply.

We have just moved from xvesa(still included) to xorg (which I believe has some support for the more common cards)

For best performance drivers can be compiled but someone else may be able to provide info on that . . . I don't know how to go about it

Welcome to the kennels. Be kind (it seems to work)

Puppy contains x.org-drivers for most graficscard.
The xorg-wizard should detect the correct one automatically.

To achive higher speed, you need to install DRI (DirectRendering Interface)-Drivers manually:
