I am quite unexperienced with ubuntu. As I am now trying to install nodejs via tar.gz package I dont get the
./configure to work.
As you may read anywhere, an installation consists basicly of these steps: 1. Download tar.gz package 2. Extract 3. Open Terminal 4. cd into the source folder 5. $ ./configure 6. $ make 7. $ sudo make install 8. -- Install completed --
No matter if I perform Step 5. with root root or not, I'm getting this Error:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
It may surely not be a configuration error, because I've just reinstalled the OS about 2 hours ago.
Thanks for any advice.
EDIT: I've downloaded the Linux-Binarys of Nodejs here. But as I think about it now, I should be using the sourcecode packege. Shouldn't I?
