Compiling a Program?


Hi,
I've been using Linux for quite a time now, and I just got SUSE Linux 10 on my computer. I recently found a program called AOL Dialer (from Linspire) that will allow me to connect to AOL on linux. However, this is only available to Linspire customers. Nevertheless, they have the source code (located here: www.linspire.com/dialersource) which I can supposedly compile and have it on my SUSE system. But I have no idea how to do so. Is there a way for one of you to tell me the commands I have to input into the Terminal in order to compile this program?

Thanks.

cd <to the dir of dialer...>

but i think it is
configure
make
make install
or
configure && make && make install

Hi,
Thanks for the info, but the source does not include a readme or a make file (which is need to compile a program, right?). All that is included is some configure files or something.
I would greatly appreciate if you could just download it and look at the files (it's only 80 kb).
Thanks.

You may want to cd into the directory in the tarball and run:

# python losaol;

Just an idea.

Thanks.
Do I extract the tar first, then run the command?
