Wasn't slack just about source? One would think it'd be make then or not?

k1ll3r_x those sound like windows names? What is it that you want to do are you trying to install a linux program in your my program files folder or a windows program in linux? Or are you still trying to install linux itself?

Well if it's just a windows program you can either set it in the click and point stuff or you can't do it at all. But you're waaaaay in the wrong forums...
