"make" command not working in shell


I'm in the middle of installing the slmdm driver, and at one point it says to run the "make" command, but all i'm getting is "bash: make: command not found"

I'm running it from the Konsole shell in suse personal 9

can anyone help?

Most probably you didn't install gcc (like me).

I suggest you open 'yast' and go to 'install packages'...
Then do a search for 'devel' packages...
You should install most of them (or all...)
You'll probably need them sometimes when trying to install various apps..

you need to install the make package. The bash was complaining that make command was not found.
