Make command still not working?
 
Hi. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and while trying to install the Wacom driver and kernel I get to the step after ./config and get this message when I use make.

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

I've tried looking up on it and they all say that build-essentials should be installed first. So I looked into it and I found out that it's already installed along with the make command itself.

Anyway to get Ubuntu to recognize it as installed?

Try running automake

If you don't have it
Code:

sudo apt-get install automake

Hi,

I suggest you that you can run "updatedb" command first. Some times database is not initialized. After this if you cannot get make command then you run "sudo apt-get install make".

Best of luck

Were there any errors after running "./config" (by which you presumably meant "./configure)? For some reason, the makefile hasn't been generated, so one naturally assumes that something went wrong during the previous step.

The OP already has make installed. The problem is that they don't seem to have a makefile (reread their post). Edit: I'm not even sure what updatedb has to do with make being installed or not. It's just used for (s)locate, if I'm not mistaken..

Yeah sorry. ./configure works fine. Automake installed as well. I seem to get this error each time though.

I have tried this too. I get this error when I run updatedb though.

Are you working in directory of source file?

It's old thread but maybe it'll help.

I don't think you need to compile it at all.

updatedb updates the database used by the locate command. Running it would have no effect on the OP's problem. In any case updatedb can only be run as root so you'd have to run 'sudo updatedb'.


Are you sure you're supposed to be using make to build it?
