Smile installation of opensuse 11.1 HP laptop dv6500


hi my name is amit, I need some help regarding suse installation on Hp laptop dv 6500.
I could install opensuse 11.1 on my laptop, with almost everything working fine. But I am facing problem while using "make" command and it says machine unknown. I checked the version of make there i could see that its support is undefined and "make -v" command says This program is build for x86_64_unknown_linux_gnu. the makefile which I want to run also uses /bin/sh file, I opend this sh file in editor and have searcher for "x86_64_unknown_linux_gnu" but this line is not there and instead "x86_64_suse_linux_gnu" is there. I dont know is this really a problem that I am able to use the make file? if yes please tell me how to resolve. And if there is some other problem please tell me how to proceed for the solution of this. Looking forward for ur response. Thanks in advance. Best regards Amit

Please try to write more clearly, your question is very hard to follow.

You say you're trying to use the make command...on WHAT? What are you trying to build? Different programs have different requirements, so without telling us what you're trying to build, we can't give a solution.
