SuSE 9.1 - No 'Make' Command?!?


I recently downloaded and in stalled SuSE linux 9.1 and when i tried to install a program it required me to use the make command (ie. make install, etc.).. When i put in the command it gave me a bash line that said "not a valid command" or something like that. Is there a different command that you must use in SuSE? There has to be a command to make a file, right?

If you did the default install then 'make' isn't installed by default. You'll need to install it through Yast.

i just found a bunch of stuff in the "Install Package" section that i did not have checked so i am going to install everything (except the braille option) and we'll see if that works.. i'll post back if it does or dosn't.
