    Unanswered: trouble installing postgressql

    Hi everyone

    I'm new to the world of installing databases etc. I'm desperately trying to install postgresql but havent even got past first base really .. when i try to fun the configure script I get the following error:

    --------------------------

    checking whether the C compiler works... configure: error: cannot run C compiled programs.
    If you meant to cross compile, use `--host'.
    --------------------------

    Can anyone please point me in the right direction so i can resolve this? And is anyone aware of some good detailed instructions I could try to complete the rest of the installation?

    Any help is much appreciated
