Gkrellm help


I am pretty new to linux, and I am using redhat 9. I took a vowel this week to not use windows, so I am still setting up some things in KDE. I am having trouble with the gkrellm-2.1.19. I am extracing it using tar xvjf gkre*
That seems to work fine.
When I cd then type in "make" I am flooded errors and alerts, ending in
main.c:569: warning: `top_frame_button_release' defined but not used
main.c:2027: warning: `create_widget_tree' defined but not used
main.c:2018: warning: `check_gkrellm_directories' defined but not used
main.c:1666: warning: `cb_destroy_event' defined but not used
main.c:2005: warning: `usage' defined but not used
main.c:2030: warning: `load_builtin_monitors' defined but not used
main.c:2089: warning: `setup_signal_handler' defined but not used
make[1]: *** [main.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/mysursnamer/Desktop/gkrellm-2.1.19/src'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Of course if i try a make instsall then, it says

root@localhost gkrellm-2.1.19]# make install
install -d /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
install -m 644 -c gkrellm.pc /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
(cd po && make install)
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/myusername/Desktop/gkrellm-2.1.19/po'

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/myusername/Desktop/gkrellm-2.1.19/po'

make[1]: Entering directory `/home/myusername/Desktop/gkrellm-2.1.19/src'
install -d -m 755 /usr/local/bin
install -c -s -m 755 gkrellm /usr/local/bin/gkrellm
install: cannot stat `gkrellm': No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/myusername/Desktop/gkrellm-2.1.19/src'
make: *** [install] Error 2
[root@localhost gkrellm-2.1.19]#

I appologize for the long error report, but any help would be appreciated. I am leaning towards it being a chmod thing, but I can't figure it out.

First you need to run ./configure script and then make and make install as root

why not download the rpm for gkrellm from freshrpm http://shrike.freshrpms.net/
use apt to do it read about how to install apt here http://freshrpms.net/apt/

The rpm has always worked for me
