make - command not found ??


I am trying to intall Apache on Slackware 9.1. I have extracted and configured it, but when I type 'make' to continue with the process I get the message:

-bash: make: command not found

I have never encountered this before. Could it be some path wrong in my installation of Linux?

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Dwight.

Were you root when you attempted it and did you install the developmental packages for Slackware?

I was root, yes. And I did install the D package. Is there some way that I might have skipped make? How can I find tihs out more accurately?

Full root or su?

Try

/sbin/make

If that fails, hunt it down:

updatedb
locate make

Full root, not su.

/sbin/make didn't work, same problem.

Locating it did not find anything just called 'make', but a heap of 'automake', '***makefile', etc.

I don't think you installed it, or you may have missed making a link or something in the orig install.

Try (re)installing it.

Thanks... I tried reinstalling the package from the CD (didn't think to even try this...) and it turns out it was corrupt, so it must have skipped it during the install.

I downloaded the latest package from Slackware and it works now. Thanks to all!
