Installing a program


Code:
[root@ fixdisktable-0.3]# ls
ChangeLog      config.sub*  configure.in  fixdisktable.c  llseek.c     printsector.c
config.guess*  configure*   fat_io.h      install-sh*     Makefile.in  printtable.c
I tried this:

Code:
[root@ fixdisktable-0.3]# ./install-sh
install:        no input file specified
How I install this program and then execute it? There is no INSTALL or README file. : (

hmm i really cant say mutch cause i never tried to install that program .. but see if there is an option on the configure script that lets you disable that.. or you might be missing dependencies.. no entirely sure.. what distroy is this? make sure that ld is the correct path

I'm running Mandrake 10.0 Official, I'm still running it from the same path. Maybe someone made an RPM format of this? It's not on RPM search. Any alternatives?
