I am trying to install Yamcha 0.33. All steps i.e. configure, make, make check are successfully completed without any errors. However while executing command make install( sudo privileges using command sudo -i), it is showing following error.

make: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.

Any suggestions?

P.S: Build-essential is also up to date.

  • Edit your question and post the output of ./configure. I have downloaded the archive and there is a rule for install in the Makefile after the successfully run of ./configure . – A.B. Jul 28 '15 at 18:09
  • Possible duplicate Compiling "make" and "install" never work ? – Liso Jul 30 '15 at 2:13
  • Can you please provide more information, see my first comment. – A.B. Jul 31 '15 at 10:51

If make worked, then just run

sudo make install

You need administrative privileges to install software.

  • Hmm, no. This error occurs, if you start a make install without sudo rights. Ok, it's another project, but the behavior is the same. – A.B. Jul 28 '15 at 18:13
  • @A.B. What do you disagree with. Normally make install copies some files to system directories. This requires sudo. But error is really weird. It should be permission denied. Maybe directory has been changed. It is hard to guess. – Pilot6 Jul 28 '15 at 18:18
  • @Pilot6 ok, seems to be the right answer. – A.B. Jul 31 '15 at 10:52
