can't install a program -- the 'configure' command is not found
I'm trying to install ABC, which is a program I currently use on Windows. I downloaded the necessary files and when I type './configure' on my console window (while in the directory of the ABC files) I get the error:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
I tried just typing 'configure' and in that case it returns:
bash: configure: command not found
I'm using SUSE 9.2. If there is any other information that is necessary to answer this question please ask. I installed this OS a very long time ago and I don't even remember much about it... I barely got it to install and I haven't used it much since then.
