    make runs like mad


    Hi all,

    I am new to linux but for bioinformatical purpose, I needed to install linux. I have tried SUSE but too much problems getting software installed so now im trying mandriva. Installation went well but i now try to compile a program and im stuck again. ./configure runs fine without errors but when i start the make command all goes normal but the make goes on over and over and doenst stop at all.

    Any advise on this matter?

    Kind regards

    What are you trying to compile? It can take a long time depending which apps you want to "make".

    Does "configure" went fine? No errors?

    this is for a package for manipulation of sequences. It requires python.2.2.1 and a whole bunch of other packages. When i download and unzip python or any of the other packages and follow the installation instructions, i do ./configure were i dont see anything looking like an error and then when i do make it goes over and over the make process again, also the same for apache.

    Check first if the software you need ain't already available as a package on the mirrors. Use the easyurpmi site for setting up software mirrors and search for the packages, before you try to compile them yourself.
