problem installing from tar.gz


After ./configure command I have to type 'make', but when I do that, it shows me this:
"make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."
What is wrong?

That error means that the Makefile (used by the make command) doesn't exist. That often occurs if the ./configure step fails. Can you post the output from that (don't worry about the length).

ummm... what are you trying to install?
are you sure you are in the right directory?

it might be helpful if you post the output between [CODE ] [/CODE ] (no spaces) so it is more easily read.

hope you get this fixed!

It looks as though you don't have the development package for glibc installed. You'll need to install this, from a package called something like glibc-devel (I have to say, I'm surprised that this wasn't installed along with gcc).

ok, you need to install glib. or, if it is installed (to check, try "whereis glib") then you need to set the classpath.
if you can get glib off your install cds then that would be great, otherwise you can get it here: http://www.linuxberg.uai.com.br/preview/8265.html

setting the classpath: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...ib&btnG=Search
that might be helpful

I installed glibc-2.32.rpm, but ./configure still doesn't work.

when I try 'whereis glib' it gives me out this:
"glib:"
I don't know what it means.

I downloaded GLib from http://www.linuxberg.uai.com.br/preview/8265.html, but it is tar.gz file and I CAN NOT INSTALL FROM IT.

And in those google searches wasn't anything useful about setting classpath.

hmm... you think you have installed it, but if you get that message from whereis, then you probably haven't. hmmm.
in another thread,

Anything other then RedHat... I can't stand the way RedHat mangles GCC and glibc.
so perhaps this is part of your problem.

Sorry, glib.tar.gz actually worked out.
But there still is error when I'm trying to install avi-xmms-1.2.3.tar.gz

I am using
Code:
