    Make file errors in Alcatel file


    suse 8.2 Pro. distro.
    P4 512mb ram.

    Trying to install my Alcatel Speedtouch usb bband modem.

    I downloaded the open source driver from Alcatels site.
    speedtouch.tar.gz

    Used the command tar -xvzf speedtouch.tar.gz to extract it.

    that went OK.
    then I enterd the command:- make
    every line in the output was either an error or invalid.

    Then I was supposed to enter the command:- make install
    but, of course that gave errors.

    I am new to this, but all I can come up with is,
    it says in the info I got from SuSE,and that is as far as SuSE will help, is to make sure the packages,
    make, gcc and glibc-devel are installed.

    How do I find out,
    and, I placed the compressed speedtouch file in my home directory, should I put it somewhere else then "work" on it.

    Any help very much appreciated.
