I am trying to install bnetd on lubuntu and i got error compiling it (I have never compiled anything yet) I execute this at the terminal:

loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... Invalid configuration `x86_64-pc-linux-gnuoldld': machine `x86_64-pc' not recognized

checking target system type... Invalid configuration `x86_64-pc-linux-gnuoldld': machine `x86_64-pc' not recognized

checking build system type... Invalid configuration `x86_64-pc-linux-gnuoldld': machine `x86_64-pc' not recognized

checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

And from the command:

ls -l /home/andrey/Desktop/bnetd-0.4.25/

I get this:

And in the tutorial I am reading it's all fine. I cant understand where is my error. Also i cant run make command because i still don't have the make file... I am using LXTerminal

Could you add the output of the next command please? ls -l /home/andrey/Desktop/bnetd-0.4.25/ –  Lucio May 24 '13 at 20:35
    
Just type ls and then choose a file like and execute it ./"filename" –  Da1T May 24 '13 at 20:39
    
Thanks. Could you add the link of the package? So we can test it. –  Lucio May 24 '13 at 20:42
    
Done. | What do you mean to get file like i must configure it and then compile. Sorry for my not-understanding but I am very new to Linux systems. –  Andrey May 24 '13 at 20:43

The configure file is placed in the src folder. To install it:

  1. From the terminal go to your src folder:

    cd /home/andrey/Desktop/bnetd-0.4.25/src/

  2. Configure the installation:

    ./configure

  3. Compile it:

    make

  4. Install it:

    sudo make install

Now you should have installed the application correctly


To have in mind: inside the compressed package you can see the INSTALL file, it contains instruction for the installation of that specific software. So the next time open it ;)
