i'm trying to install vlc because i've been having problems with totem recently so i downloaded the file vlc-0.8.2.tar.gz and i uncompress it and than i do ./configure and on the faqs it says to complie and install by doing
Password: [Root Password]
# make install
but when i enter 'make' i get
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
what i dont understand is that inside the directory created from uncompressing there are two makefiles, Makefile.am and Makefile.in I dont understand what i'm doing wrong any suggestions
