Are you sure that that is the correct directory name? I just guessed that name (from an older version). Also, make sure that all capitals letters are put in the right place (Linux is case-sensitive)

I'm sure once you get into the right directory, all will go smoothly

Hmmm ... maybe you better read that INSTALL file or go to the FlightGear web site and read any FAQ's

Sorry I can't be of more help

Remember, these were only generic install instructions. There may be other requirements/options you need.

STEP 1
Download this file:
ftp://194.199.20.114/linux/sourcefor...1.2-1.i386.rpm (Size 91 KB)
Open a terminal, cd to the directory you saved this file and type :
rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps kconfigure-1.2-1.i386.rpm

STEP 1 alternative
If the link above does not work go to http://www.sourceforge.net , search for kconfigure and
download the file kconfigure-1.2-0.i386.rpm (Size 109 KB)
Open a terminal, cd to the directory you saved this file and type :
rpm -Uvh --force --nodeps kconfigure-1.2-0.i386.rpm

It will install a tool for KDE that will simplify the installation proccess.
NOTE: You may have to restart X (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace) if you cannot find the Kconfigure command mentioned in Step 2.

STEP 2
Now use Konqueror to go to the directory were you unziped FlightGear, like you would use Windows Explorer.
Find the file named configure , right-click on it and search for the command
KConfigure . It should be on the main pop-up menu or in the sub-menu Actions.

KConfigure does all the ./configure -- make -- make install automatically.
You'll like it, it's like installing a program in Windows...you know "Next...Next...Finish..."
It will ask you to provide options for configure, make, make install. Just click Next.
On the last screen click the Start button and wait till the installation finishes.
When all is done it will pop-up a message saying that the installation completed ok.

GOOD LUCK!

P.S. I'm a newbie too.

Well, something is wrong with the package. Try reading the README or INSTALL file to see if the program has any other requirements. Maybe there is something missing. Read the output from kconfigure to find out what the problem is and post it here.
