How do you install all packages required???
I've tried installing a few options such as gcc and some of the required packages for it, but theres always something else it needs. I use RedHat's GnoRPM to simplify things as I am new to this.

Can anyone help. I think this may be part of the reason why I can't use the 'make' command, as there were one or two things that may not have been installed when I installed gcc the other day...and everything in Linux seems to be linked so how.

Also, if you have anything to say on how I can get 'make' to work please include that, as it is the biggest problem I have right now. The errors I get are things like unable to open (somefile).h or (somefile).o and things like that. The worse thing is that I can't do anything without this stuff it seems...including upgrading these components.

:study: I've been looking everywhere for answers.

the make command
Excuse my lack of detail, its been awhile and i to am trying to get reacquainted with this as well.
when a file like
the old way was #sh
or #./
that would run the script. As far as the Make command goes.... when you gunzip (unzip) a tar file cd into the new directory and look for any README file or INSTALL file. Hopefully you can do so with the vi editor. here is a good reference site i found recently Sweeeet

Hopefully someone soon will be able to jump on this that can explain better than i can :D
