make command

I've just recently installed SUSE Linux 9 and when I went to use the "make" command in xterm it told me "command not found". Can anybody tell me how to fix this or why it's not found? Sorry I'm new this Linux thing. Thanks

Go in YaST and enter 'make' and select the 'provides' box. You just need to install the package that contains the make command. Be sure you also check if the gcc and glib packages are installed.

When you installed SuSE you mustn't of selected the Programming group.

Do you have 9.1 Personal Edition? There you will not find the programming tools. You need to get them from a SuSE FTP server.

This is very easy if you add the server to your installation sources. Have a look at the suse website for a near mirror and create a new source in yast. After that, do as jschiwal has described.
