VLC Media Player install having trouble

Post by a lemming » Mon Dec 15, 2008 6:56

So I just downloaded VLC Media Player, and I ran the ./configure with no problem. Then I tried to run "make" but it gives me this error:
"make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."

I can't understand why this is happening. Please help me :(

P.S. I'm kind of a newb at linux, so bear with me if your replies are gibberish to me :oops:

sigh, why are you not using the package manager to install programs?

See our wiki on package managers Entropy and Portage

Funny, I never installed VLC (Entropy, Portage, download or whatever), but it's here, and it works :)
Handtekening? Zeg...ik ga niet op m'n monitor schrijven!
