Install root-tail
I downloaded the tar.gz and opened the README and it said to do this:


  xmkmf -a
  make install

when I typed xmkmf -a the teminal said xmkmf: no such command.
Ho do I fix this and/or how to install it?

Apparently you don't have the program xmkmf installed or it's not in your path.

May the source be with you SnowSurfAir. I hope you installed the developmental packages, if not, better get apt4rpm!

See my previous post for all the links as you seemed to have overlooked them :D
