Eclipse C/C++ gmake problem


I'd like to use eclipse for c/c++ development and am using eclipse 3.0.1 with CDT on openSuSE. Prior to installing CDT I had to install the gcc compiler. When I open a shell, I can call both gcc and gmake with no problem.

I further followed this how-to which states that I need to set the build command of new make projects to gmake, which I did.

Still, when I try to run my Standard Make C application, I get the following output on the console:
gmake clean all
gmake: *** Keine Regel, um »clean« zu erstellen. Schluss.

I am using a german language version, the latter would roughly say that "there are no rules to create >>clean<<" (which actually would be the file name).

Any idea?

When you setup Eclipse, do you tell it where to do builds, etc? If so, go to that directory and see if there is a file called "makefile" or "Makefile" in there.

A note to everyone else: his link is to a PDF file.



c++, cdt, eclipse
