what user are you doing this as? (You shouldn't have to .config/make as root though; install you more than likely should have to)
do you have a floppy installed?

'snot' really an error - just a message.

Don't worry 'bout it.

Did you find make or just see the /fd error message?

Which distro are you running? is qpopper available as a package for that distro from that vendor? make should be available as a package (rpm).

If ya don't have the CDROM, try to get to the RedHat ftp site. I'm really not much of a red hatter, so I don't know how to a nice simple package/rpm manager. (I have only installed red hat once - paid $179 for it and was not as impressed as I thought I would be)

If you can get qpopper RPM for your version of redhat (my reccomendation as the install tools should check dependancies for you) then you might not need to worry 'bout getting 'make' quite yet. If you can only get it from source then consider yourself doubly challenged. It was a while before I installed my first package from source and it was a lot simpler than qpopper! I at least hope you have some admin experience for mail. If not then 'hats' off to ya if you manage to get it going. Gotta go sleep or at least renice my conscious self to 19.

I wouldn't worry about it. /proc/6/fd sounds like the directory that holds the file descriptors for process 6 on your box... Only the process itself is probably able to access it, which is probably a good thing!! This is purely speculation, but thats what I'd have thought. Having just look on my box I can access the fd/ folder for my procs... /proc doesn't really contain anything...

That is normal; you'll always get that message for entries in /proc. /proc is not a physical filesystem/directory, it is virtual (held in memory), and therefore cannot be interacted with in the same way as other directories.

You can find a short description here:
