[Digikam-users] Digikam on eeepc

Just been trying to install digiKam on my new eeepc, and discovered that the
package version is only 0.8.
I see that the latest stable version is 0.93, but when I try to install it
following the standard tarball destructions on your website, it whinges that
there isn't a valid C compiler. 
A Digital Asset Manager is the one critical app that isn't on the eeepc as
standard, and that I need to have (for viewing canon 5D and G9 raw files to
decide which are the keepers, to add iptc data (eg captions, keywords,
copyright info) and to rename the keepers) for working away from the studio.
As it stands v 0.8 of digiKam doesn't have enough functionality, but it
looks like v 0.9x should have much of the missing IPTC/batch keyword tagging
I need. but if I can't get it to install, then I may be forced into going
down the XP install to get a wider choice of DAM software that can provide
this functionality.
Please save me from XPing my eee! I've only been using linux since getting
the eeepc a couple of days ago, but would like to keep it running linux
rather than windoze if possible:-)
Any ideas on how to solve this much appreciated
Best wishes
