Configure: error: C preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails


#1

I’m installing nagios 3.0rc3 and I’m getting this error message when I try to run configure as outlined in the OpenSuse instructions. I’ve verifited that I have gc++ installed but it doesn’t seem to help. Any suggestions? I apologize, but I’m a nagios newbie and far from a linux expert.

Here’s my config.log:

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59. Invocation command line was

$ ./configure --with-command-group=nagcmd
