Install file .bz2


Recommended Posts

iiiiii,anyone can help me to teach me how to install for file .bz2,it is source code for Suse, i can't use ./configure in terminal.thanks

 

First off, why are you installing source on a RPM based system?

 

Next are you sure that no SRPM or RPM exists (even third party)

 

Finally if you are sure you wish to use the source install, make sure you have installed all the required -devel packages.

 

The standard technique to install from source on a system is:

# tar xvfj file-1.0.tar.bz2
# cd file-1.0
# ./configure --with-options --with-more-options
# make
# make -n install
# make install

 

Hope that helps

linux:~ # cd /home/fauzi/xchat-2.4.4

linux:/home/fauzi/xchat-2.4.4 # ./configure

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c

checking whether build environment is sane... yes

checking for gawk... gawk

checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... no

checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no

checking for gcc... no

checking for cc... no

checking for cc... no

checking for cl... no

configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH

See `config.log' for more details.

linux:/home/fauzi/xchat-2.4.4 # make

bash: make: command not found

 

why i could nt use make command,where i should write it. DO you have link for kopete 0.9.3 with rpm extension that i can install it directly without use terminal. And also Mirc for Suse. Anthore thing,anyone know how to use wine, when i have finish install the Mirc program for example,and when i write updtaedb,it didnt work. Where should i write it?and how is it?Thanks

The configure has failed.. "no acceptable C compiler found". This is one reason why you can't run the make command. The other is that "make" isn't install it seems "command not found". This is the norm with RPM based distributions. You would need to install "gcc", "make" and any other programs that the source needed to compile.

 

DO you have link for kopete 0.9.3 with rpm extension that i can install it directly without use terminal.

 

You can install a couple of ways, the best is to use "Yast". Just launch Yast, go to Software and then to Install and Remove Software. Do a search on the program you want to install (kopete), then click the square in front of the program name and then Accept. It should do everything for you from then on.

 

If you can't find the program in the list then you can try to download the RPM manually and install from it.

 

Best places to search are:

* http://freshmeat.net/

 

* http://rpm.pbone.net/

 

* http://rpmfind.net/

 

* http://www.rpmseek.com/

 

Once you download the RPM you can then use the method shown by Novell.

 

And also Mirc for Suse.

 

It sounds strange that you would wish to run a Windows program instead of a Linux native one?

 

Try XChat, I think that you will find it easy enough to use. If you are determined to use mIRC then you will need to install wine.

 

Anthore thing,anyone know how to use wine, when i have finish install the Mirc program for example,

 

Using wine can be as simple as:

wine mirc.exe

 

and when i write updtaedb,it didnt work. Where should i write it?and how is it?Thanks

 

updatedb is a "root" only command. You will need to become superuser and then run the command. However you will find that the system should automate the run of updatedb every now and then..

 

$ su -
....root password....
# updatedb

 

Thats the quickest way.
