Make Menuconfig problems


I am using SuSe and having problems using the make menuconfig command. When I do, I get this error message

bash: make : command not found

As you can guess, I am a real linux newb. Any help will be hugely appreciated.

I am confused, like, I downloaded the source I want to move to, and un compressed it and everything...



By the way, love the quote, I live by it.

You probably haven't installed the "make" utility. Find and install it and things will be OK.

Yea, I think you are right. I have been reading around, and that is what it sounds like is wrong. But, at the risk of sounding like a dumbass, how do I do that? where do I find the little make thingy?

Thanks

Hi

Look in your menu for yast install software.
When it starts it will ask for root password
Yast will come up
Use the search box and type make
Search will show results, check the box then press accept.
You will then be able to install from the Suse Disks.

Si

Cool, thank you so much guys for all the help. But I need some more. It cannot find Ncurses. I installed ncurses from yast, and it still says I need it.

Hey guys, got a good one for you, this happens right after I try to do bzImage


make[1]: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.
CC arch/i386/kernel/process.o
arch/i386/kernel/process.c:497: error: conflicting types for `__switch_to'
include/asm/system.h:13: error: previous declaration of `__switch_to'
make[1]: *** [arch/i386/kernel/process.o] Error 1
make: *** [arch/i386/kernel] Error 2



I have no fucking idea. Oh, and btw, I am using kernel 2.6.2
