    Question Nothing to be done for `all'


    When I try to run 'make' as instructed in the readme I get an error saying, "Nothing to be done for 'all'".

    Here are the contents of my Makefile:
    www . heypasteit . com/clip/LP0

    I would post the source here, but it says I need to post 15 posts before I can do it.

    Does anyone see a problem?

    Thanks for the help.

    is there a ./configure script you need to run first? and if so did it run without incident?

    No, there is not a ./configure script.

    what distro are you using and what are you trying to compile? there is no reason
    99% of the time to compile software from source manually

    perhaps you don't have compiler tools installed, and also, you should post exact error message

    There is probably something quirky with the makefile.
    This error usually means that you have already compiled
    the program, and the source files have not been edited
    since the last compile.
