Hi Ellis,

It seems you have not installed cygwin completely. When you run the cygwin setup program it pops up a small dialog box which will show GROUPS of utilities. You need to expand the groups and make sure the utilities you are looking for are checked. The default settings only install some utils. I generally expand each group and check everything so that i can have the complete set of utilities.

  "sed" stands for "stream editor". It is mainly used for filtering the
GCC uses AWK and sed when installing. It is by default installed with Linux.
I don't know whether they are part of Cygwin environment. Don't hesitate to
install these packages in your environment. You would get them for free.

Before installing sed, please check if it is already available to you.
It may just not be included in your path. In my system, it is in /bin

Hello gcc helpers,

I have installed cygwin on my laptop computer, which runs Windows 98.

I have downloaded all of the necessary files to install gcc, and put them 
in a folder C:/gcc-3.2.2

I have made another folder called C:/gcc-objdir

And then I went to that directory and typed C:/gcc-3.2.2/configure

And the following error message appeared:

sed: not found

I have no idea what that means and therefore do not know how to 
successfully configure and ultimately install gcc.  Any help you can offer 
would be very much appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,

Josie Ellis
