./configure not working


I just installed mandrake 10 official, and i'm having compiling problems. I'm trying to install azureus bit torrent client. i get this:

[user@localhost azureus]$ cd '/home/user/Desktop/azureus'
[user@localhost azureus]$ ls
azureus* libswt-awt-motif-3062.so* libXm.so@ README.linux
Azureus2.jar libswt-gnome-motif-3062.so* libXm.so.2@ swt-about.html
azureus.png libswt-gtk-motif-3062.so* libXm.so.2.1* swt-gtk.jar
ChangeLog.txt libswt-kde-motif-3062.so* License.txt swt.jar
cpl-v10.html libswt-motif-3062.so* mpl-v11.txt swt-mozilla.jar
lgpl-v21.txt libswt-mozilla-motif-3062.so* plugins/
[user@localhost azureus]$ ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Does this mean that it doesn't have the configure file? If so, which file am i suppose to use? Does mandrake 10 come with the compiling tools? (gcc etc.) Please help

you can't execute a file that doesn't exist.

some applications don't require that step to compile.

Did you read the README file?

check the readme
it says:
REQUIREMENTS:
Azureus requires Java 1.4.x or newer to run.
http://java.sun.com

RUNNING:
1. Extract the contents of this .tar.bz2 file.
2. Change to the 'azureus' directory where the files were extracted.
3. Start Azureus by running the script named 'azureus'; ex. "./azureus"

i just did as it said, extract to your preferred directory, then ran the azureus script and works fine.

ok i installed java, but its' not being detected

Starting Azureus...
Java exec not found in PATH, starting auto-search...
ls: /usr/java: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/java/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from http://java.sun.com

It's looking to see if /usr/java directory exists... if not then it doesn't know where to look for java... I think it is possible for you to point your java path to the right directory (in this case where ever Java was installed). A lot of programs just assume you installed java under the /usr/java directory but a lot of the times the java installer doesn't... so you could also solve it by making a link as follows "ln -s /real/path/to/java /usr/java"

where do i insert that link command? I tried it like this:

[me@localhost azureus]$ ./azureus ln s-/home/mej/java

But it said it still couldn't find it.

"./azureus" should run azureus.
the "ln -s /real/path/to/java /usr/java" just links the real java path to /usr/java, so that azureus finds it.

Sweet it works now! I installed Java again though, this time using the .rpm.bin rather than the .bin. It must have installed it in the right places, because azureus recognized it right away this time. Thanks alot for all the help.
