You are in the wrong directory (you need to be in the directory you extracted to) and the prog can't find the makefile. Re-read the README and INSTALL files carefully.

new error
Code:
in the prefix, you've chosen, are no KDE headers installed. This will fail.
So, check this please and use another prefix!

Dependency chase!

Does Red Carpet have a SuSE channel?

Is there apt4rpm for SuSE?

On second thought, Red Carpet is mostly gnome stuff and your stuff depends on the kde libraries.

Time to find a yast howto, I guess.

Does yast not have dependency resolution? Have you tried installing through that?

hey suseboy, SuSE installs kde in a non-standard place "/opt/kde" or something like that. So check you ./configure script for some option like --with-kdelibs=/opt/kde/

Try it and tell if it was of some use

I was wondering if you could install a pre-built package for SuSE through their package manager, (most package managers have dependency resolution and knowledge of where things are installed on the specific distribution) and have the dependencies automatically resolved.

Otherwise, re-read the README and INSTALL files, make sure you have the required stuff installed and the path to it so you can edit your makefiles properly, etc.
