So I'm learning to program and I wanted to install Xcode tools on my Mac so I can compile C with gcc. I tried to install from my Leopard CD, but when it prompts me to select a destination volume, it says that I cannot install on my Macintosh HD. The error message says:

"You cannot install Xcode Tools on this volume. A version of Mac OS X 10.4 was not found."

The same thing happens when I try to just install gcc or Developer Tools from the disc. This is the disc I used to install my current OS, so why am I getting this error and how can I get around it?

I'm running Mac OS X 10.5.6 (9G55). Is there a version of gcc or another free C compiler available for my OS?

Thanks!

Try downloading Xcode from Apple here. IIRC, you will have to sign up for an account first.

The reason you can't install a copy of X code and tools might be because it's already installed with Leopard. Look under Applications -> Utilities -> XCode.app.

Is Xcode not installed under /Developer?

No, I don't think so. All I can see on my machine under /Developer are the Applet Launcher.app and Jar Bundler.app. I don't believe Xcode has to be installed there to use it although I could certainly be wrong about that.

After some quick searching, the default is /Developer but it can be installed anywhere.
