What distro (version) of Linux are you using?

Is gcc installed? (Normally, make would be installed as part of gcc.) Regardless, check with your package manager.

Run the command

make --version

see what it outputs, if it does give you some thing like

GNU Make 3.81

Make is installed, else it is not.

Hi,

Not all versions of opensuse have make (and automake) installed by default (10.3 does, if I remember correctly).
You probably also need to install gcc, g++ and binutils

Use Yast to install them (YaST -> Software -> Software Management).

Hope this helps.
