You probaly read this a million times, but I can't find
the right how-to's to learn it. Here it goes..
I just downloaded an application called mm.tar.gz which
is a mixer app for sound cards under X-windows. I can't
install the darn thing with make. The Makefile is of course
included with all the other files for the application.
What is the correct way to install new or downloaded apps ?
I unzipped the file, untarred it to get the source code.
I thought the next step in the installation process is to
run the make command. Well, is does start to run something ..
with lots of error messages but it does not produce the actual
binary to run the program.
I guess my question is : What is the correct procedure to
install any new or downloaded software, or where can I read
about it ?
