I just installed Fedora 20 and am trying to install ms-sys. However, when I do "make", I am presented with the following error:

"cc -O2 -ansi -pedantic -Wall -c -I inc -D PACKAGE=\"ms-sys\" -D LOCALEDIR=\"/usr/local/share/locale\" -idirafter include-fallback -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64  -o obj/fat32fd.o src/fat32fd.c
make: cc: Command not found
make: *** [obj/fat32fd.o] Error 127"

I have tried to install gettext as many believes to be the solution to error 127, but it is already installed according to yum.

Please don't answer the question within the question. If you don't want to accept my answer, post your own answer separately and accept that. – Warren Young Jan 2 '14 at 10:35

That's fine. I mainly wanted to point out that Stack Exchange lets you post an answer to your own question and accept it. – Warren Young Jan 2 '14 at 12:01

You don't have a C compiler installed. Say:

# yum install gcc

as root to fix this.

If GCC is supposed to be installed, say yum reinstall gcc instead.
