Very New to RedHat 8 Porblems tar.gz
 
Hello,

Please bare with me, I have only just installed RedHat for the first time.
Mind you it was quite easy.

Ok, I have installed it with KDE and not GNOME, if that help in the later stages,

What I have is 'opendchub-0.7.14.tar.gz' its a Direct Connect hub that I want to run on my Redhat Server, but I have no idea where to start.

I have managed to extract the files to into a folder /opendchub/ in the 'home' directory. This is where I get stuck, I have no idea what to do next.

If someone with a little knowledge could put together a little step by step guide (as im very stupid when it comes to Linux) I would be very grateful.

Alternatively a link to other sites with guides would be great.

Many Thanks

Stuart

Normally, your next step would be to open a console and do the following:

./configure
then
make
then
su (hit enter and then enter the root password)
make install

These are however generic instructions. In the newly created directory, look for the README and INSTALL files - they will give full info.
