couldn't find package gmake error.


I'm trying to install the cheops network tool on backtrack 5 linux.

I have downloaded and extracted it as instructed here:
http://cheops-ng.sourceforge.net/download.php

When I try to run gmake it tells me:
gmake: command not found.

If I search for gmake using locate gmake it returns nothing.

If I try and install it using apt-get install gmake
It says couldn't find package gmake.

Any ideas??

gmake = make ; apt-get install make


But why do you want to build cheops-ng-0.2.3 ? ?
Add "hardy" in Synaptic > Settings > Repositories > Other Software,
.. then Recycle / Refresh Synaptic ,,, and install :
apt-get install cheops-ng

Link http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/cheops-ng

Had troubles installing this too as cheops-ng is nearly over 7 years old and not maintained anymore:

http://cheops-ng.sourceforge.net/

I used this alternative, Lanmap2, does the job but is quite slow mapping the network, depending on how many hosts are running.
