"Make" command missing


Please- anyone. I need an easy way to download and install the "make" command. I really hope it is possible. Thus far everything that i have read is far too complicated.

what distro are you using? You need to download and install the development packages for your distro.

If you put your distro in your profile we'd be able to tell you.

That distro might not have development tools, such as make.

You first need to enable APT. It has been a while since I've used DSL, but I believe it is done through the fluxbox menu. Then enter:

# sudo apt-get install make

That should work.
