Download manager


Can anyone help me install WXDownload Fast from dfast.sourceforge.

I did't see anything for Slackware 12. I only saw options for ubuntu and Debian. so I went for the Debian version.

Naturally I am trying as root.


./wxdfast_0.5.4_i386.deb
bash: ./wxdfast_0.5.4_i386.deb: Permission denied

I also tried to open the file in KPackage manager and I get

Unknown package type: /home/siavash/Desktop/temp/WX/wxdfast_0.5.4_i386.deb

Alternatively if anyone knows of a better Download manager which has torrent capability would be welcomed.

I have not done this recently, but perhaps you should look into 'alien' to convert the DEB format into something that Slackware can understand.

Otherwise you might just be better off compiling from source?

I got a reply from the author who says I should compile from source. I tried as best I could as a newbie and here is what I am getting. Can anyone make suggestions?

root@zorro:/home/siavash/Desktop/temp/WX/wxdfast-0.6.0# ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /bin/ginstall -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for style of include used by make... none
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

You need to install the GCC compiler and any related packages.
