I'm still pretty green to the Zaurus world. Got my Zaurus C1000 about 10 days ago and am still getting acquainted. Apologies if this is a bad question that comes up often. But I just couldn't find any threads for 'make'. It's too common a word and all kinds of results come up. Same in Google.

Basically the title says it all, I'd like to run 'make' and 'make install'. How can I do this?

I'm running the Zaurus C1000, Cacko 1.23

Thanks in advance, guys! Loving the Z and this forum!

Hi,

I'm not sure what you are trying to build. You will need the common build tools, which
can be installed by hand (like I did when I last setup my Z with pdaXrom), or you can
mount a (compatible, again I don't know about cacko) loop device image file,
which would include a directory tree with all of the stuff you need for most compiles.

In any case, typically, software in source form, includes a configure script, which
looks at your LINUX install, to find various things, and based on where it finds them,
creates a makefile. You will know if you have the tools setup right, if you see:

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop. (If you type "make")

and

gcc: no input files (If you type "gcc")
