bash: make: command not found - on suse 9.1


Hello, i am a newbie who is very stuck.

I am trying to get a asus wireless card working on this linux box. I found this:
www megalinux net /archives/ 467.html
which is the exact same card i have.

now when i am going through the install instructions i am getting the error,
bash: make: command not found

I searched the forum and the web, but could not find anything useful.
I found a thred saying 'install make in YaST' but it is not there. that person had the same problem and another reply was to add a ftp to something, but i have no internt on the machine.

Please help!


Thank you

That is no use to me,
Please READ my post before replying.
As i said:
'I searched the forum and the web, but could not find anything useful.'

The answer to that thread was 'Put in you mandriva cd'

and as it says in the title i am using SuSE 9.1, so i dont have a mandriva cd.

................You're kidding me?

It only means to put the CD FROM THE DISTRO YOU CHOSE. I have Mandriva, so I put the Mandriva CD in... Do the same with Suse and install the make program. That's it. You didn't find anything usefull... Its not like you were the only one to have a problem with that. Just look at the bottom of the page, you have 5 DIRECT links to the same problem.

Dont u think i did that... It is not on the SuSE Disk.
As i said, another SuSE user had the same problem as me, and they had to add the SuSE FTP Server, But i dont have the internet on the machine to do that, and i went on to the ftp server and could not find anything.

well, i think "make" comes from the gcc compiler, check if you got gcc installed and if not, install it. i'm sure there are some rpm files of gcc out there.

feel free to download it from my ftp server @ ftp://andra.sytes.net .
i'm sure it's on there. but prob. not the newest version.

1. Hmmm. I wonder if 'make' is in my path: `which make`
2. Hmmm. I wonder where make is on my system: `find / -name make`
3. Hmmm. I found make, but wonder how to put it in my path : `PATH=$PATH:/path/to/make`

And for the record "/path/to/make" is NOT a literal path.
