Exclamation urgent help required i m frsutrated tried everything


hello experts!

i have downloaded vlc tar.bz2 package unzipped it using the tar xvjf command then i changed into the unzipped directory and ran ./configure command or file. every thing was fine no error stated in the last line everything seems to be fine. now i have read at many places that i need to type "make" press enter and then "make install" to install the vlc player but this is what happens when i type make and press enter "make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop." error message is displayed. please help i really need to install the vlc player.

Then why don't you use the OpenSuSe package?

Read the output of the configure script. Odds are you're going to find some errors listed in there. How you fix it depends on the errors.

It seems that packman repos exist with it for opensuse 10.2:
