jjesse: I thought LP automatically closes after a certain period.

Tom: You need to enable the internet repositories (see but check the 'main' repository rather than the universe button)

Then you need to install the build-essential package (see for how to install packages.

gcc is unable to create an executable file.
If gcc is a cross-compiler, use the --enable-cross-compile option.
Only do this if you know what cross compiling means.
C compiler test failed.

If you think configure made a mistake, make sure you are using the latest
version from SVN. If the latest version fails, report the problem to the
<email address hidden> mailing list or IRC #ffmpeg on
Include the log file "config.err" produced by configure as this will help
solving the problem.

Can you help with this problem?
