Question make && make install not working.


Please suggest on below error,

[root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/local/src/mysql-4.1.21
[root@localhost mysql-4.1.21]# pwd
/usr/local/src/mysql-4.1.21
[root@localhost mysql-4.1.21]# date
Mon Jan 21 06:43:18 IST 2013
[root@localhost mysql-4.1.21]# make clean
make: *** No rule to make target `clean'. Stop.
[root@localhost mysql-4.1.21]# make && make install
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
[root@localhost mysql-4.1.21]#


I am unable to installed MySQL through ./configure command.

Which distribution are you using?
The error says that the said libraries are missing and you need to install them.
