I'm trying to compile the program WinFF from source.

I used this application all the time with openSUSE 11.2, and Ubuntu but Packman has no package for 11.3

I know I could ask for it to be repackaged and someone would probably do it but I would like to take the opportunity to try something new. (for me anyway)

I found some useful step by step instructions and read some sticky posts by Oldcpu and gave it a go. I didn't get very far.

As you can see in my posting below when I unpacked the tar ball and went to run the configure command and there I hit a snag.


linux-2vac:~ # cd /usr/local/src
linux-2vac:/usr/local/src # ls
winff-1.3.0-source.tar.gz
linux-2vac:/usr/local/src # tar xvzf winff-1.3.0-source.tar.gz

Since this is new to me I have no idea what to do next. Any help is greatly appreciated.
