Re: ok im a newbie take it easy on me :)

sad  me too! I am trying to install Xastir 1.9.2 on to PuppyLinux 4.0 and I am getting the same problems with "configure", "make" and "make install", just to name a few.
Back in the DOS days it was possible to set a PATH so that Commands could be used at any level in the Directory/Folder structure. Is there a similar facility in Linux? I am finding it difficult to locate some of the Commands from the # prompt. [Simon, I have downloaded your listing of BASH Commands and have been trying to run them from the Command Line. This is where I come unstuck except when using "pwd" and "ls".

Simon, your help will be much appreciated and your response will probably fix up 2 newbies in one go!

Re: ok im a newbie take it easy on me :)

When you run configure you are running a script, not a command
The configure script should be one of the files unzipped as part of the package you are about to install, this is why you need to be in the right directory - you don't want to run some other configure.

./configure
Will make the shell run the script named 'configure' which must exist in the current directory.

All that configure does is check your system and assign values for system-dependent variables - you should see a bunch of messages scroll down the screen as it runs. If any major requirements are missing on your system, the configure script should exit and give you a warning about what failed.
