I would also like to note I did not know the package you download from Sauerbraten.org was for 32-bit systems. It does not specify on the site. It just says it is for Windows, linux, or MacOS. It does not specify which version.

THIS did not work BECAUSE YOU did not read the install instructions or even LOOK at the files the " Makefile " is in the src folder . You did not even bother to look and just BLINDLY tried to run ./configure with out even looking or reading ANYTHING .

READ THE INSTRUCTIONS !!!!!

THERE IS LINES ABOVE THAT I LEFT OFF BECAUSE IT GOES A WHILE BEFORE I GET THE ERROR.

Also I have redownloaded the program so i know its not a faulty file. probably anyways

Have you tried installing from a package manager? That honestly is the best way.

I'm new to Linux. I have Mandriva. I'm trying to install Flash Player 10 (to access Hulu) with no success. Here are the instructions Adobe gave me:



1. Click the download link to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file.
2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
3. Unpackage the file. A directory called install_flash_player_10_linux will be created.
4. In terminal, navigate to this directory and type ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer. Click Enter. The installer will instruct you to shut down your browser(s).
5. Once the installation is complete, the plug-in will be installed in your Mozilla browser. To verify, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.

When I'm in the terminal program, I type this in but don't get a response. I'm not sure how to navigate to directories...thanks in advance...
