Ok, so here I am, I have my VPS, I'm all excited!, I managed to get SSH and Sftp all figured out.
I uploaded my tar files to install my IRCd.
I unpacked them, and went to ./Config... and Got an error Message pretty much telling me I Have no compilers installed. lol

Me of course not having a clue about Debian 5.0 or how to install compilers, I thought perhaps some of you may have already been through this, and can point me in the right direction.

I did a Google search for "C compilers" and got a list as long as my arm.
I'm honestly not exactly sure which to get, or even how to install them.
So, If anyone could help me out, I'd really appreciate it.

I guess the info I'm after is what all do I need to get this IRCd Installed.

Thank you!

I found this information on the Debian Linux website.
It was exactly what I needed.
I thought others can use this Information as well.

How do I install GNU/GCC compiler tools collection under Debian Linux system using command line options?

You need to install package called build-essential package.

This package contains an informational list of packages which are considered essential for building Debian packages including gcc compiler, make and other required tools. This package also depends on the packages on that list, to make it easy to have the build-essential packages installed.

Simply type the following command as root user:
# apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
# apt-get install build-essential
# gcc -v
# make -v

Now, you should able to compile software, create Debian packages or simply write a code using C / C++ compilers.

Debian has a huge precompiled package repository, so you almost never have to compile anything.

To see what IRC server packages are available, type:

apt-get update && apt-cache ircd

You can then install the one you want with:

apt-get install <package>
