errors in compiling procedure


Hi,

I am working in opensuse 11.0. I have softwares that their installation is in the nature of first configuring them and then typing 'make'.

In 90% of times I receive errors when I want to make them. That leaves me the message that xxx.xx file can not be read. Something like:

Fatal Error: Can't open module file 'xxx.mod' for reading at (1): No such file or directory
make: *** [forhar.o] Error 1

How could I get rid of such errors and have successful compilations?

Regards,

That's a very general question, so it's kind of hard to answer with anything that's not quite vague - generally, when `make' can't find something, the configure script will try to look for it, and you can pass it the information using a flag such as --with-<feature-name>=/path/to/dir. Or you can disable a feature you don't have on your system with --without-<feature-name> or --disable-<feature-name>.

This is very package-dependant, so read the README and INSTALL files that usually come with packages, and also `./configure --help' can be informative.

Best bet, though, is to just start fixing the problems - it's easier to get help for specific problems, and you might start noticing a pattern of what's wrong/what to do.

Good luck!

Please mention a couple of application examples.

May be you have just changed to a wrong directory,
when trying to do a command ?
→ → cd <to-directory-with-"file">

The preferable method to find programs for Suse 11 :
1) su
2) zypper se <name>
3) zypper in <package-name>
.. se is short for search and in short for install.
