Maybe last time it compiled....
Is your program working?
Could be ok.
Unless it's real big doesn't hurt to run 'make clean'
Does not change your config file.
Just rebuilds from source.
Sometimes good to put your mind at ease

make install

I just complie pyxmms-remote just now ,Everything went fine but when I try to ' make 'it said the same thing ,like nothing to be done for all ,'nothing to be done for install-exec-am ' and it exit itself,last time I complie the program was superkaramba 0.33,I couldn't run the command make after I complie it so ,I was using it from src folder which is in superkaramba untar folder.It work perfectly.From them on ,I only try using rpm (by the way,althrought I am a linux newbie ,I am a hardcore mandrake fan,I use mdk9.1 with kernel 2.4.21-26 and I had install kdevelop instead of automake but I have automake 1.4.I try uninstalling kdevelop and use automake 1.6 but it doesn't work so,I just hang on with kdevelop.My autoconf version is 2.13,Everything is working smoothly but I can't complie anymore .I mean ,I am sorry,I can complie perfectly but it wouldn't make.
Can you tell me which is best between kdevelop and automake .Because in mdk9.1 ,I only got to chosse one .Whenever I try to install one from rpm ,other got to be ,what shall I do?
thanks for taking time for me.
