seems you had the same problem like I.
But where did you find the .bashrc file, I cant find it.
How do you come this far?
Do you download all thatt gcc and other-compiler-Stuff, do I really need it?

I wasn´t able to put something in the $home directory, only in the $home/(username)/... .
Is it meant that you put somthing in your Username-Home, when it is written put it in your-Home??

The .bashrc file should be in your home directory, if you use the bash shell. Your home directory is defined by the environment variable $HOME, and should be the directory /home/<username>/. If you download everything into the directories described on the download page and in the README, you then have to modify your .bashrc accordingly and source it with:

> source ~/.bashrc

Then you shouldn't need to compile from source.
