    make command not found

    This is rather odd, I am trying to install KDE3.5.2 using Konstruct, however when i try to run make install I'm told make : command not found

    I tried anoth app and it's the same, there is definitely a make file, I just can't run make.

    It's just possible that you don't have make installed as a utility. There's a difference between a make file and the programme which runs it.

    To check just open a terminal and type man make ... if the manual is there so's the utility.

    Hope that helps. If you don't have it then make should be on your installation disk(s).

    Yeah, thanks fingal, there's no man page for make. So i'll dig about and install it.

    s'what happens when I start playing with things, I end up breaking them.

    It's workin' now though.

    I'm having the same problems. I recently installed Mandriva One and I'm not sure where I would find this on the installation disk, or how to go about getting the make command to work otherwise... Thanks!

    Run the software installation tool located in the Mandriva Control Center and search for "make". Once you find it select it for installation and install any discs required by the package installer.
