Question ./configure > make > make install

./configure > make > make install ( post #1)


i need some help here.

I have programms to install. So, i enter the zipped file and copy the inside folder to my /home. then i change to /home/<my_program> and run the ./configure command. it takes its time showing some messages. at the end of the procedure it writes something about the kde prefix (could not find kde headers, change the prefix). And if i try to run make command, it tells that no makefile was found (in the folder exist some makefile-like files ( or or .in)

can anyone help me?

PS : i have suse 93

thanks in advance

You probably need to install the KDE development libraries, which should be on whatever installation media your distro came with.

Ya, should work after you install the development package. I have never used SuSE so I cannot tell you which file to install, though. Perhaps a SuSE user can answer it better.

But what package are you trying to install? If it is already available for SuSE, you may not need to compile it from source (Compile from source when you want to learn or tweak )

Just a suggestion.
