Installing .tar.gz files with SuSE Linux 9.1


Hello. I am having a problem installing .tar.gz files on SuSE Linux 9.1. I open the terminal, and change to the directory that my files are stored in. I type in:

Code:
tar -xzvf myfile.tar.gz
, then change to my new directory. Then I type:

Code:
./configure
And get a few xxxx...missing notices, which I ignore, and type:

Code:
make
At this point, I get something to the effect of "command not found". Is this a SuSE problem, or am I doing something terribly wrong?

Thanks in advance,

--Abbi

This is the first mistake, the messages are there to help you, don't ignore them.

You will need to install make, it is probably available from your installation disks in a development section.
