how to install programs in puppy linux

REMEMBER: you need kde and open gl libs and headers mesa3d.org

Running cmake . . .
./fastinstall.sh line 6: kde-config: command not found
CMake Error: Could not find CMAKE_ROOT ! ! !
CMake has most likely not been installed correctly.

Video for compiling in Puppy
YouTube - Puppy Linux development tools
Puppy Linux Community - Home
Puppy Google Search
To elaborate a little further. Puppy uses devx to compile in Puppy Linux. Think of it as gmake, or make in other distros. It is the same as the build-essential tool in Debian. devx comes as a devx.sfs file. .sfs files are added via Puppy Boot Manager in Menu on frugal installs. If you have a full install instead. Use the Puppy Google search engine and search for : installing .sfs in full install.
