source installation not working correctly in Mandriva 2010.0 pp
So I just installed Mandriva and was trying to install alien so I don't have to deal with source anymore. This happened, tried other sources and the same error. Maybe I'm overlooking something simple, but this is killing me.
so, First I wget (url for alien). It finishes.
Then, I start the installation
me@localhost ~]$ tar xvzf alien_8.1.1.tar.gz
me@localhost ~]$ cd alien
that takes me to where it should. then
me@localhost alien]$ ./configure
which gives me a result of
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
Am I doing something wrong with this? Why is the ./configure not recognized?
