question 3

im trying to install karamba-0.17 im not sure what it is cause i downloaded alot of things that sounded cool..
does anyone know what it is and whats wrong with the end of this install?

The simplest way to compile this package is:

1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
`./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're
using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type
`sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute
`configure' itself.

Running `configure' takes a while. While running, it prints some
messages telling which features it is checking for.

2. Type `make' to compile the package.

3. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and

4. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
source code directory by typing `make clean'.
Good - your configure finished. Start make now

[joe@localhost karamba-0.17]$ make
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/joe/Desktop/karamba-0.17'
Making all in doc

......blah blah blah.......

There's an RPM at sourceforge I think. I installed superkaramba via an RPM.
