Thread: What has happened to ./configure and make ?

  1. #1

    Default What has happened to ./configure and make ?

    I have used SUSE 9.1 for a good while now and it works

    So on another PC I installed 11.1 and find that if the RPM you were looking for doesn't install so you turn to the Tarball. But our old friends configure and make have disappeared !!!!!

    Go configure

    fred

    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    So maybe the program isn't autoconf/automake based and doen't have a
    configure script? You chose not to give the program name. You may very
    well have forgotten to "chmod u+x" it. And make sure "make" it installed.

    I think this goes beyond this within a bash session with su
    linux-koka:/# ./configure
    bash: ./configure : No such file or directory

    I haven't found these programs within /bin or /sbin so it looks like they are missing some how.

    How do I install them configure and make if they are missing ?

    How about telling us, _which_ program you want to compile?
    BTW:

    Code:
    # ./configure
    NEVER compile as root!

    avast4workstation-1.3.0-1.586.rpm the rpm is coming back with a dependency problem. So I dropped back to the tarball and found all this.

    Avast is a linux based anti-virus works very well on the SUSE 9.1.

    It looks like the "configure" and "make" are missing.

    The configure script is part of the program sources, it's not a system
    command.

    This should give you all you'll need:

    $ zypper in -t pattern devel_C_C++

    Again, if there is no "configure" with the sources, there just isn't
    one. Please read the README or INSTALL files which come with the
    sources as they usually explain exactly what you need to do.

    Kind regards,
