Yeah, I purchased a Macbook Pro. Was about time, so I’m new at Mac Operating system. Anyhow, I noticed. My Macbook didn’t seem to have PEAR installed.
Quick Google search came up with, use Wget. But guess what. I don’t have Wget installed. Seems that the Curl alternative does work but I wanted to install Wget nonetheless.
Found a quick solution to installing wget but it requires me to compile. Now were getting somewhere right? Okay so get this. I already installed XCode the other day so I have it installed.
As posted somewhere in the comments someone said that you need GCC , and it came on the second disc with your mac. Now this is what I don’t get. Last time I checked, this thing didn’t come with a disc. That’s right. Booted it up, got an installer for Mac OSX and just followed the installer. But I never put a disc in if I ever recall.
Okay, so here I am. Wondering why I don’t have a disc with some sort of tools required to run this stuff. So can please someone help me figure out what I need to do in order for this to work?
What I would love is that Wget and PEAR works. Now I can figure it all out myself if only I knew how to get these build tools. That I read about. My Terminal says this exactly:
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
I already have XCode installed. Now I’m stuck. Anyone in a mood to help me out? ThanksI was using the following articles to get things done by the way: http://pear.php.net/manual/en/installation.getting.php
Woah woah woah, if using curl works with installing pearhttp://clickontyler.com/blog/2008/01/how-to-install-pear-in-mac-os-x-leopard/
I assume that’s what you read…
Why complicate things with installing wget…Anyway, you could use: https://github.com/kennethreitz/osx-gcc-installer
which bypasses the need for installing xcode…
My God, it seems so much more complicated than a linux doesn’t it?
sudo apt-get install gcc
