Regarding installation of .tar.bz2 files


I just switched over to linux and am having some difficulty installing .tar.bz2 files..


Upto the configure stage everything goes well. After configuring when I give the make command following message is displayed

Code:
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong... THis happens to every .tar.bz2 and other tar files

First, you might want to explore your distro's package manager and see if the package is already available.

It doesn't sound like the ./configure stage was successful. The configure script creates the Makefile which the make command looks for. Check your logs. Also be sure to read the README and INSTALL files in the directory. Some tarballs don't use autoconf. You need to check to make sure.

Provide more details. What is the name of the package. Where did you download it from. Are you working in a directory where you have full permissions?

I was trying to install anjuta-2.26.0.0.tar.bz2

I read its readme and followed the same procedure as was mentioned.


I was following the instructions from here : http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/softinstall.html

These instructions are same as in the readme.

I am running these commands as root

When you run ./configure
Look at the output at the screen to see if there are errormessages.

Thanks and sorry.. I guess I didn't look very carefully

Which distribution are you using?
Isn't anjuta in the repo's?
Debian SID has anjuta in the repo's
Quote:
cannabis:/home/repo# apt-cache search anjuta
anjuta - A GNOME development IDE, for C/C++
anjuta-common - A GNOME development IDE, for C/C++ - data files
anjuta-dbg - A GNOME development IDE, for C/C++ - debug files
anjuta-dev - A GNOME development IDE, for C/C++ - development files
libdevhelp-1-0 - Library providing documentation browser functionality
devhelp - A GNOME developers help program
devhelp-common - common files for devhelp and its library
libdevhelp-1-1 - Library providing documentation browser functionality
libdevhelp-1-dev - Library providing documentation browser functionality (development)
cannabis:/home/repo#
So seems to me you should be able to instal it using the packetmanager.

Thanks a lot.. Its has been installed successfully...

I have a question, why mentioning the version of the anjuta file was not necessary during the installation when I gave the yum command?? Please do not mind if I am sounding stupid..

Can you please refer me to somewhere I can learn about these installation procedures in detail.. I have started using linux just two days back and I am thrilled by what I am seeing.. It's very exciting..

yum will automaticly install the latest version that is available in the repo's.

A good start would be
