It would help if you described what distro you're using. Is there any reason not to simply install the extundelete package rather than compiling it from source? On my Debian system I have this:
Quote:
~$ aptitude show extundelete
Package: extundelete
New: yes
State: installed
Automatically installed: no
Version: 0.2.0-2.1
Priority: optional
Section: utils
Maintainer: Debian Forensics <forensics-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org>
Architecture: amd64
Uncompressed Size: 157 k
Depends: e2fslibs (>= 1.42), libc6 (>= 2.2.5), libcomerr2 (>= 1.01), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1), libstdc++6 (>=
4.6)
Conflicts: extundelete
Description: utility to recover deleted files from ext3/ext4 partition
extundelete uses the information stored in the partition's journal to attempt to recover a file that has
been deleted. There is no guarantee that any particular file will be able to be undeleted.

My distro is "Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.0 (Santiago)"
and kernel version is "2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64"

Actually I wanted to install extundelete utility to recover deleted files. After searching on Internet I found its package extundelete 0.2.0 for RHEL 6.0 and procedure to install it. Procedure says that u have to first extract the package and then compile the code..

Is there any other way to install this utility.Please guide me.

Thanks

you have a major problem here , well a few
1) rhel6.4 is the current "6.0" is a bit old and out of date unless you are paying red hat extra money to keep it at 6.0
2)
you really DO NOT want to use "rpm" to install software
"yum" is the package manager , it takes care of the NEEDED dependencies
you need a LOT more than just "gcc" installed , you need the rest of the autotools
Code:
su -
yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
will install everything you need for the base tools to build software


then to build the source for that you need ( from the README) "e2fsprogs " and "e2fslibs"
and the -devel rpm's for them

they should be in the rhn repo
search for them
Code:
 su -
yum search e2fs
--- you should see them listed --
yum install e2fsprogs e2fsprogs-devel e2fsprogs-libs


these "deleted" files ARE on a different machine ? right

otherwise the searching in google and dl'ing the extendelete source and installing those rpms just overwrote the files you want to try to recover
