    How far have you got? If it is a RPM that you downloaded, just install it by double-clicking it in whatever file browser that you're using.
    If it's a source tarball (.tar.gz), open up a terminal, cd to the directory where you downloaded it to, and run "tar -xvzf <filename>", where <filename> is the name of the .tar.gz file. The cd into the directory that it created, and run these commands:
    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    su -c "make install"
    The last command will ask you to enter your root password in order to do the actual installation.

    Where did you get the file from? I could take a look at it.

    OK, then. cd to the source directory, and then to the "unix" directory. From there, run these:
    Code:
    make
    su -c "make install"
    Note, that you'll need to configure the program as well. How to do this is documented in the README file in the source directory.

    All the process

    I am in /home/.../yahoopops/unix

    I typed 'make' and some process begins.

    It stops with this:

    make[1] *** [WebBrowse.o] Error1
    make[1] Leaving directory 'home/.../unix'

    make: *** [all] Error2

    If I run:

    su - c "make install"

    make: no rule to make target 'install'. Stop.

    Tnaks a lot!!!

    I don't think that's all. If you look back a few lines (probably from the last gcc command), you'll see the real error. It's probably some library that you don't have installed.
