I've downloaded uget from its source fourge link. It is a tar.gz file. I have read that i could install a file of this type by extracting its contents and following these steps.
./configure make install
But, when I give ./configure
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane - configure error
Am i following the steps? What am I missing? I know the easiest way is to do
sudo apt-get install uget
But i want to know the reason for its failure.
