MAKE command problem
I'm having a problem trying to run the MAKE command after completion of running the ./configure command. I'm hoping that my problem is simply one of syntax, a result of my newness to Linux.

As an example, in attempts to install the TkDesk program I successfully ran the ./configure command from the Terminal window, using the command ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/TkDesk-2.0 --with-tcl=/usr/local/ActiveTcl/lib. At the conclusion of running ./configure the Terminal window echoed, "configure complete, now type 'make' ". However, when I tried to run the MAKE command I was presented with a barrage of errors, typically:

error: conflicting types for `Tcl_FindCommand' or
error: conflicting types for `Tcl_CreateNamespace'

Because of these errors, no folders were created, no files were installed, and the MAKE command self-terminated. Attempting to install other programs using the MAKE command resulted in similar errors.

How do I use the MAKE command properly? I'm running Fedora release 2.6.

try running make as root....

type 'su' then enter the root password, then type 'make'

i'm not sure thats the problem, but it might work.. good luck

Thanks fatrandy13. I should have mentioned in my original post that I was root. I copied the Tereminal window echo for both the ./ configure and the MAKE command runs into a txt file. The beginnig of the MAKE command log is:

[root@localhost tkdesk-2.0]# make

Because I was root, the program folders were set to be installed under /usr/local by default rather than under /home.
