Hai i still have the problem with configure command


Hai guys,

I am installing a tool set called Simplescalar onto my newly installed Redhat linux.But to configure my system to its tools i need to use configure command.
My problem is whenever i go for configure it says configure not found.When i tried to append it to the PATH i cud not find it in either /bin or /usr/bin.--So i wonder whether configure is a default linux command or not So please clarify my doubt


and when i looked at my .bashrc i did not find path variable there.so what shall i do to append to the PATH

When you open the terminal you need to cd (change directory) into the folder you're trying to compile. The easiest way to fill in the path is to drag and drop the folder into an open terminal window.
Code:
cd /path/to/Simplescalar
./configure
make
su
password
make install

configure is not a linux comand, what it actualy is , its a scripts made usualy by a program called autoconf, most popular programs have these configure scripts, and sence its a scripts not every program has it, read teh readme/install file to see how to intall it,

go to the directory of the source u want to install and type
./configure

the './' tells the system to look in the curent dirctory and not teh werever the PATH is pointing to
