Mingw install help

Hello Everyone,

I am following the directions for installing GNURadio with minGW on XP
found
here…

http://gnuradio.org/trac/wiki/MingwInstallMain

When I get to installing FFTW, I try compiling it (from MSYS prompt) and
I
get the following error…

No acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

Quick internet search indicates that GCC was not installed. Do I need
to do
more than just unpack the gcc files into the mingw directory? Any other
ideas?

Thanks for the help.

“ls /mingw/bin” should show that gcc.exe is in /mingw/bin and “echo
$PATH”
should list /mingw/bin as being in the search path. If both of these
are
true, then “which gcc” should return “/mingw/bin/gcc” and the FFTW
install
should work. If not, you need to figure out if gcc is missing or if the
shell just can’t find it.

Let us know what you find, because sometimes things change and the
instructions stop working and need to be updated.

Thanks.

There is no gcc in my bin directory (there is a g++ thou). I downloaded
the
gcc fles (core and gcc) and uncompressed them in the minigw directory.
I am
sure I am missing something simple.
