does ./configure --prefix=$HOME/eclipse rather than ./configure --prefix=$HOME/eclpise work?

Exclamation

errr actually the that was a typo in my message not on the command line sorry!

I suspect that I may need to use something other than ./configure but I am not sure what do you think. I am using fedora 11 by the way

Reading your other posts on this issue, you aren't describing how you plan on installing Eclipse.

Have you downloaded the Eclipse *.tar.gz package from http://www.eclipse.org? Which distribution are you running, Fedora?

Suggestion: more descriptive title and more information in the post. And less red would be nice.

What are you trying to do? On what version of Linux?

The error message says you are trying to run a file called configure in the current directory and there isn't a file of that name in the current directory. Either you haven't got a configure or it's in another directory.

If the "~" in your prompt is the directory you are currently in, you are trying to run a program from your home directory. This seems unlikely to work since most software you download creates a sub-directory when you untar it.

thanks, now i'm blinded by the huge red lines

anyway.. mention your distribution, maybe you don't need to compile eclipse at all, because it might be in the repository already.

if you need to compile, please be sure to extract the archive first into a separate directory, then cd into that directory.. and do a list (ls), to see it's contents..

then read the manual/compile instructions on how to compile, and which requirements it needs to compile. Make sure you have those requirements setup. Then proceed with the compilation as described.

Most programs have this order to compile (but check to be sure):

./configure (with optional parameters added like e.g. --with=blablaba)

make

make install


good luck

Type ls -l to see if configure is actually in the directory you think it is.
