I am experimenting with downloading source code rather than the rpm for RH9.
From what I have read the process is usually the same each time.
1) Download file
2) bunzip2 or tar or whatever to extract files
3) change to new directory
4) ./configure (I believe this makes a makefile??)
6) su -c make install
Now I have tried this , however i found that my file had a dependency that i neede to install first, so.....
I started the process again with the necessary file, and that had a dependency, so ......
I started the process again with the next file, however when I do step 4) ./configure I get an error :
[glenn@localhost Hermes-1.3-CVS-00-02-17]$ ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
Question : Is this because I have already run the ./configure on another file and it created "stuff" in a "Makefile" that this new file is trying to access???
I really don't know if that made sense, hopefully someone will have mercy on my formerly Windows 98 driven soul
