Compilation question.

First and foremost, I'm a real newbie in Linux and here I am in this forum to ask this question, please dont flame me.

I've downloaded a dozens of IDS for my Linux Redhat 7.3 and always encounter problem installing them, I didn't download the program in *.rpm or any form that make my life easier because I'm looking forward to modify some of the source.But unfortunately, everytime I do a makefile or follow the instructions provided I will get error.Error message that I don't understand.

Files missing,integrity error,missing link and many more.

But my friend who is using Linux Redhat 7.3 is just doing fine and I wonder what is behind his success.

Thank you everyone.

Read read read.....

Maybe your friend has all the necessary dependencies for the programs installed. Always read the README file (that's why it's called that ) to see what other programs you need before you can install.

It would help more to list a program your trying to install and the error message your getting.
