How to Make a Makefile for KDevelop 2.0 ???


Hi All,
I am trying to get going on compiling a C++ project in KDevelop 2.0. Before I describe my problem, here's the details about the setup:

Operating System: SuSE Linux Professional 7.3 (the BEST)
Intended Compiler/IDE: KDevelop 2.0
Intended Programming language: C++
Kernel: 2.4.10
Short Problem Description: Missing Makefile error in KDevelop 2.0

Ok, now let me explain the situation. Every time I create a project in KDevelop 2.0, it complains about not finding a Makefile! It says that I FORGOT to make my own makefile or something weird like that. It also suggests I mess with the KDevelop setup.

Note that I HAVE messed with the Kdevelop setup to no avail, and that i DO NOT KNOW HOW TO MAKE MY OWN MAKE FILE, let alone understanding how they work.

So, how do you get this compiler to work? NOTE: I am a Linux nebie, and I would prefer a "dummy" description of how to get this compiler working, Can anybody help me?

NOTE: intended programming langauge is C++. ALL programs compil;e just fine under Microsoft Windows XP - Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0

Somebody lpease help!

What kind of project are you making? A console C++ program, or a custom program?

simple

Its a simple console/terminal application, or whatever is equivelant to "Win32 Console Application" in Visual C++

NOTE: when creating the project, i usually choose "Terminal->C++"

Have you tried Build->Distclean/Rebuild all? Also if that doesn't work at your left at the tabs where all your classes appear, click on the groups tab and check if your sources and headers appear at the appropriate group...

nope! READ THIS!

Here is the message I get even BEFORER i get a chance to add my source files/headers:

"Makefile Not Found - there is no makefile to build your application. Possibly you forgot to create the makefiles. In this case Please run Build->Configure"

Note that It also gives me this error message if I try Build->DistClean it gives the same message!
REMMEMBER: it gives this message as soon as the project workspace is created!

Also note, I tried to do the Build->Configure thing as suggested, but that took me nowehere!

SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!



sux!!

run the makefile manually then if you are unable to configure seems you didn't configured your settings properly

Problem Solved

NOTE TO ALL SUSE LINUX PROFESSIONAL 7.3:

TO FIX THIS PROBLEM YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD AN OLDER VERSION OF AUTOCONF AND FORCE A RE-INSALL OF IT. APPARENTLY THE VERSION OF AUTOCONF THAT SHIPS WITH SUSE IS INCOMPATIBLE WITH KDEVELOP. For more details, check out this link:


Oh, and you WILL need to recreate your projects!

SuSE Support Database Article (A MUST READ)

I stumbled across this link quite by coincidence, and I thought I'd pass it along!
