    No make command


    I'm not vary familiar with Mandriva, so please excuse the newb question.

    I'm trying to install some software from source. Once I run the configure file, I try to run make, but I get the error "command not found".

    How do I go about installing make?

    I would open up a terminal, log in as root and type urpmi make . This assumes you have some software repositories set up. You could use the GUI software installer, but it takes longer to explain how.
