How do you install NetSpeed from https://github.com/hedayaty/NetSpeed?

I tried with

$ git-clone https://github.com/hedayaty/NetSpeed.git
$ cd NetSpeed

So far fine, but then

$ ./configure --options 
$ make
$ sudo make install

which didn't work.

The configure file doesn't exist,

$ ls -l

What am I doing wrong/ what should I try with?

  • I have barely ever used git before.

  • You have a Makefile. Which means the build command is make. Please do not always expect a build to start with ./configure ... There are ~10 other ways : cmake, qmake, 'python setup.py build', scons, './waf configure', jam, bjam, 'perl Makefile.PL', 'perl Build.PL', ant, mvn, etc. Commented Mar 26, 2018 at 22:33
  • Read 'README', of course!

  • @KnudLarsen, I actually tried wit that line of reasoning (more like guessing), but I never really understood what to do after that and was also uncertain about what to do after this. It only generated a 'locale' (I forgot to delete that file from the output of 'ls -l' up there) and a file called '[email protected]' (backup? idk). So thanks for the clarification - and yes, I should have added these thoughts to my orifginal post the first time - but what would the next step be after doing a 'make' and a 'sudo make install'?

  • @KnudLarsen, do you know where I can find the documentation? I tried to search for it, but didn't find it obvious where it was. I would appreciate it a lot!
