    Compiling source


    I am trying to install Clam from source and as I follow the instructions i run ./configure and it runs as expected i think. I then run make and it says command not found. I found that i needed to install build-essential but i can't get it to install. I get this every time i try to install a program from source. I ran as root when i try to do this. Any help would be appreciated.

    thank you,

    Why can't you install build-essential? What's the error or problem?

    build-essential

    build-essential says command not found.

    urpmi apt-get install build-essential not found. i also tried sudo build-essential which i think is for ubuntu but that was what i found when i searched the forums. i think that i am missing something on the command line.

    thanks,

    Try installing GCC.
    Code:
    urpmi gcc

    Well, i have not used Mandriva in forever so I'm not too sure of the package that you need, so I would try at least searching for make
    Code:
    urpmi make
