Make command not found in IXP1200 linux


hi, first off i'd like to say sorry if u'm in the wrong section or nething. this is my first time here and um really a noob when it comes to linux.

newho, i'm currently working on IXP1200 with embedded linux. the problem is when i'm trying to set up ARMtoolchain for the IXP1200, my window would say "bash:make: command not found".

i've searched the web and could only find to possible solution so far
1. use the command 'locate make' to try and find the file.
2. install make.

i haven't done ne of those yet and probably will tomorrw. just wondering what you guys might think and maybe if some of you did come across similar problem such as mine than you could probably share with me how you go about solving it.

owh..for the 2nd solution - i don't even know how to install make. haha.

Make is one of the basic tools, used to build your programs (invoke compiler, linker and so on). It looks it's not installed in your system, so you should start the day with installing it. If you're developing on Linux, it may be a good idea to install everything your distribution has in 'development' packages - you may need some of them later.

How to install something.. It depends on the distribution. Search for some kind of 'software management' or 'package management' tool. Then you can search and install using package names.

what do you mean by distribution? sorry to sound so noobish but i am rather new with these things.

neway, if by distribution you mean the file name or what kernel i am using, it's a zImage i got from this website "hxxp://netwinder.osuosl.org/users/u/urnaik/public_html/ixp1200_howto.html" (replace the x's with t's)

basically i've been trying to do the procedures given on the website and right now i'm stuck at the "installing cross hosted toolchain" procedure.
