Make sure the file is present in the directory you are in.
To verify type
Code:
ls
If the file isn't there, CD to the directory which contains the file.

Kind regards

Did you cd into the directory which was created with the tar command?
cd to the directory containing the files, there is a README or INSTALL file, open it with a text editor and read them.
They will explain what to do.
Perhaps you don't need to compile.
It would help to know what you are installing.

Kind regards

Yes i did cd to directory.
Well in the install file it says:
mkdir build
cd build
cmake

make
make install

I tried some combinations, but nothing worked. Im trying to install K3b cd burner, so i can burn windows xp in my dvd and reinstall the os, because this is too hard for me.

One of the reasons you are having a problem is that it is " linpus light"

The makers thought of it as an appliance like a TV or a VCR or a toaster .
You are not meant to install software on it ( it can be done ,but not easily )

If you want to install new programs ( and updated versions of programs) you really should install a new operating system
Something like Ubuntu
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download
or Linux mint
http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php
for a lightweight netbook

Another reason is because the whole Linpus stable is a badly maintained fork of Fedora 8.
