newbie question installing vpn client

hi everyone!
today I installed open suse 11.0 for the first time in my life. by the way, its my first linux ever…

Now I’m trying to connect to the internet. My computer is connected to a router which is via antenna connected to my unversity. to acess the internet via antenna I use a VPN Client. Now I tried to install the client as it says on my university homepage, unpack in the temp directory and enter ./vpn_install in the shell.

then there comes this list about where the binaries will be instaled and the kernel source:

*Binaries will be installed in"/usr/local/bin".

*Modules will be installed in “/lib/modules/”.

*The VPN service will be started AUTOMATICALLY at boot time

*Kernel source from “/lib/modules/” will be used to build the module

After pressing enter it says this:

Making module
./ line 50: make: command not found
Failed to make module “cisco_ipsec.ko”.

As I mentioned at the beginning - this is the first time I’m using Linux, so I have absolutely no idea where the problem is and would be grateful for any help.

btw, I used all the default settings during installation.

This might be interestig too, I can access the router by typing in the IP in firefox. so all I need is the VPN client.



You need to install C/C++ compiler and tools, C/C++ Development and Linux Kernel Development patterns.

With that, you will get the tools you need (make).
