make: command not found


Hello
i have just built a new computer to act as an FTP server. I have decided, after some research, to use vsftpd as the server software on my slackware 10.2 install.

I have downloaded the newest version of vsftpd and have unzipped the .tar.gz file i downloaded, i then cd to the folder it has created and type the make command, as instructed to do so in the install text file, and i get the following:

-bash: make: command not found

I have dabbled with linux here and there and have never had this problem before. Could anyone suggest a method to solving this problem?

Thanks

Rob

try looking in the Slackware package manager for 'make', In some distros it's not installed by default.

Get the package from any Slackware mirror (it'll be in the /d directory, e.g. here) and the install it with "installpkg filename" as root.

ok i have done that and when i tried make it worked but then required gcc which is also not installed in my installation by the looks of things, so i found that on the same website and downloaded and installed that in the same way.

Now i have hit a slight wall, i run the make command in the folder and i get this:

gcc -c main.c -02 -Wall -W -Wshadow -idrafter dummyinc
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec 'as': No such file or directory
make: *** [main.o] Error 1

anybody got any ideas?

thanks

as appears to be part of binutils, which is in the same directory as gcc and make.

Sorry, I meant to download the binutils package and install it. You'll then have as on your system.
