Need help with package installs
I'm having a lot of problems getting packages to install in Puppy Linux (431). First off, I'd like to point out that I am a TOTAL Linux newbie. I just installed PL the other day. I don't know the first thing about compiling, etc. If I can't find a .PET for a program I'm lost...
For example, I'm trying to install a program called qBittorrent with no success. This is what the ReadMe file says...
"For installation, follow the instructions from INSTALL file, but simple:
make && make install
will install and execute qBittorrent hopefully without any problem."
I open rxvt, navigate to the qbittorrent folder (where I extracted the package) and I type "./configure"
It responds with "You don't seem to have 'make' or 'gmake' in your PATH. Cannot proceed."
I'm assuming my syntax is wrong and I have NO idea what to do. I need EXPLICIT instructions on how to use these commands.
If I type 'make' or 'gmake' it says, "bash: g/make: command not found". I Googled this and someone said, "make package may not be installed". Nothing in the Puppy Package Installer about it. I have no idea if it's installed or not. Don't know how to tell.
I've also tried to use the 'sudo' command but I get an error when I do this as well, but not when I type just 'su'.
I NEED HELP!!!
