Hello Experts i am little new to linux, i have one question.
Q:I have a Source .tarball file when i decompress it with -zxvf for & -jxvf for tar.bz2 file, it get ./configure by this command but when i try to "make" that file it says
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
i have this problem with many tarball file.
plz any help

After untar'ing the tar.gz or tar.bz2 file, change your directory to the particulat untar'ed file and excute the commands.......But make sure that, make file is present at the untar'ed directory.

Do you get any error while ./configure command ? If yes post the total error.

and Don't forget to give parameter --prefix to installed software in one directory which is really helpful at the time of remove.
./configure --prefix=/your/path/for/install
