Cool Problems installing Qtella

To get straight to the point, this is what happens when i run "make" in the qtella directory

root@darkstar:/stuff/qtella-0.6.5# make
cd . && automake-1.8 --gnu Makefile
/bin/sh: automake-1.8: command not found
make: *** [] Error 127

Me, with my overall Linux virginity, have very little to go on with this
To start from the beginning, I downloaded the original qtella-0.6.5.tar.gz into /root and copy and pasted the contents (which were contained in the folder qtella-0.6.5) with Konquerer into /stuff/qtella-0.65
Obviously, my next step was to read the README file

1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
`./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're
using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
`sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
`configure' itself.


root@darkstar:/stuff/qtella-0.6.5/src# ./configure
-bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Hmm...I guess I could try it in the main /stuff/qtella-0.6.5/ directory then?

config.status: config.h is unchanged

Alright, now the next step:

2. Type `make' to compile the package.

So, I do just that, and thats when the aforementioned happens

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You'll need to download/install automake

I think I do have it installed already (doesn't a full installation of Slack come with that?)
Anyway, just to be sure, I d/led automake and I ran into roughly same problem installing it

root@darkstar:/stuff/automake-1.9# make
cd . && perllibdir=/stuff/automake-1.9"/lib:./lib" /stuff/automake-1.9/aclocal --acdir=m4
/bin/sh: /stuff/automake-1.9/aclocal: No such file or directory
make: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 127

I had no problems using make earlier, and I even tested it by installing XMMS and it worked

I'm soo lost, lol
