Compiling Problem
 
Every time I download and uncompress a Tar file I move to the directory where I downloaded the file and follow the instructions ie ./configure and this works ok but when I use the next command "make "it always says no make file.
This happens to all my downloads.
Very greatful for any help.

Regards


Dave

If ./configure works ok then it will create the Makefiles. Also, you don't run ./configure in the directory where you downloaded the file, you do it in the directory it creates when you un-tar it. Make sure you are running ./configure in the correct directory, and then check the output to make sure it didn't give any errors. If you're still stuck, then post the output here
