    how to install programs in puppy linux

    Have read many tutorials on installing software in linux but usually 2 to 5 steps work and then have failure. Can anyone help with this. Following is an example just tried. Again i am using Puppy linux 5.

    mkdir /usr/local/src/

    cd /usr/local/src/


    cd <directory>

    more INSTALL
    as root:
    REMEMBER: you need kde and open gl libs and headers
    to compile this
    Running cmake . . .
    ./ line 6: kde-config: command not found
    CMake Error: Could not find CMAKE_ROOT ! ! !
    CMake has most likely not been installed correctly.
    Modules directory not found in
    CMake Error : Error executing cmake : :LoadCache(). Aborting

    Running make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop

    Warning: Installation might be broken

    Video for compiling in Puppy

    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.
