Yeah, but be sure to specify any odd directory locations for your distro, as I forgot about that in Mandrake, and ended up sending it to wherever the --prefix option defaults to.

It probably defaults to /usr/local/bin
What's wrong with that?

Not to sound condescending, but are you sure you don't already have it installed? It is pretty standard.

Well in Mdk that's not the right place bulliver, and using the current menu entries I got the older executable, and when I copied one over the other I lost the icon

Sorry, but I'm new to all these....

What are the commands to install it? Could you make it a little more clearly?

Thanks

I tried entering "make" but came up with errors, couldnt install.

view the readme and install files after you extract it

normally it is:
(in the terminal)

(as user)
./configure
make
(as root)
make install

see my guide in my signature below for a more detailed list of commands.

I was searching for the error that caused my problem as above. One site was talking about
"/bin/sh: line 1: cc: command not found"
as not having a c compiler installed.

But I do have gcc installed, so why do I still have this problem?

And also....I'm not sure what you were saying previously.

Pls help...Sorry for the trouble.

Regarding the prev prob: I untar-ed the tar file of gkrellm, went into its directory, typed "make" but gave the error as stated above. That error that is seen from above is the error that i always get when i try "make" on any untar-ed files.

I managed to get gkrellm installed. I used the rpm file instead of the tar file.

I've got another problem.

How do I display the fan readings on gkrellm? I cant seem to find any place to do that in the configuration menu.
