    Unhappy Another Tarball install issue

    I can't seem to install the hamachi tarball for my openSUSE
    I've tried it several times now and I keep getting the same issues.
    Here is what I entered into XTerm:
    cd /home/remco/src
    tar zxvf hamachi-
    Here is the part that goes wrong
    when I type ./configure I get an error that it doesn't recognise the command.
    In the readme file it says that I have to run make install, but that gives me the same error, can somebody help me??
    I'm just a newbie so I wont understand everything, but I just want this working!

    It looks like this tarball doesn't include a configure file. It's probably a precompiled package. You can check what it actually contains by listing the directory with ls.

    Have you actually got the make command on your system? Check by typing which make. If you get "No make" you'll have to start by installing that. Then you can use make to install hamachi.

    Post the complete error message.

    Few things that might help.
    1. Are you sure tar file is not corrupt? check the downloaded tar md5sum from original site
    2.As Hazel said, Do you have build essentials like make/automake/autoconf ? else install them first and then try again. Checkout README/INSTALL file ,on most software's it will have installation steps.
