Cool problem making file

Hi! im having trouble making a file. the thing is that im trying to install a sound driver but the documentation i've says to make some files first.

what appears on the screen is:

makefile:159: /Rules.make:no such file or directory
make: No rule to make target '/Rule.make'. Stop.

can someone help?

It looks like the software you're either trying to configure or build or whatnot is looking for a file "Rules.make" and it's not there.

From the top level of the install directory, you could run:

find ./ -name Rules.make and see which ones are there.

I'd say either delete the package and untar and do a ./configure again, or grab either a newer or older package.
