    Got this from:

    http://www.tldp.org/FAQ/Linux-FAQ/po...MPILE-PROGRAMS

    Q: How Do I Install GNU Software?

    A: On a correctly configured system, installing a GNU software package requires four steps:

    1.

    With the [source.tar.gz] archive in the [/usr/src/] directory, or wherever you maintain your source files, untar and decompress the package with the command:

    tar zxvf package-name.tar.gz

    2.

    Run the ./configure script in the untarred source archive's top-level directory with whatever command line arguments you need. The options that configure recognizes are usually contained in a file called [INSTALL] or [README].
    3.

    Run make. This will build the source code into an executable program (or programs) and may take a few minutes or a few hours, depending on the speed of the computer and the size of the package.
    4.

    Run make install. This will install the compiled binaries, configuration files, and any libraries in the appropriate directories.

    Re:Please help-Should be simple

    instead of logging on as root, you can just do a su. What you do is go into konsole or xterm. You can do an Alt-F2 then type in xterm. then type in SU and then enter your root password. Then you can execute the commands in the installation instructions. Once you complete step 1, you can go into the folder it creates and read the install or readme files for more specific instructions.

    you can look for me on AIM at mugsisme. By commands I just meant the ./configure, make, and make install referenced in the how to above. Yes, that is where you type them in, in Konsole or Xterm, etc.

    You should actually be compiling software as your regular user and then only switching to root to install them.
