Cant find Make file...

I am very new to linux,though i am pretty impressed with my OpenSuse 11 installed on my Laptop.But i cant compile and install programs.I tried ‘./configure’.Once this was done ,i was expecting a make file.But i get a message ‘bash: make: command not found’.Kindly help me.

I think you need to open up Yast–>software management and install gcc. Without a C compiler, you can’t make anything.

Hi
You need to install the development tools. Either use YaST or the
following CLI commands.


zypper in devel_C_C++

If you also use the following, this shows what is installed and what
isn’t from a pattern point of view.

You can make a mess
You can make it all better
You can make love not war
You can make a cake
You can make a mountain out of a molehill
You can make a lot of noise
You can make trouble (like I’m doing now…)

i just wonder if you know that it is not required to compile EVERYTHING…there
are many many many applications ready to roll…

first stop for any application should be (imo)
http://packages.opensuse-community.org/

or, just open YaST and then click on Software Management, and then search for
the package…

i’ve used linux for years and compile maybe two a year…

here, read all this http://tinyurl.com/66h4rw
especially the number 4 part…
