A few weeks ago I installed 6.06 Desktop on an A64. Nice package and
easy to install.
After a few hours I wanted something that I couldn't get by apt-get. I
think it may have been pony-prog but I don't recall for sure. Whatever
it was I downloaded the source and tried to do a ./configure, make, make
install. It didn't work. After googling it seems that the ability to
compile is not in the default desktop. I tried more googling and tried
apt-gets for make, install, gcc, and whatever seemed like a good idea
from reading my google searches. I couldn't get it to work and set it
aside for a few weeks.
Now I would like to hit it again. This seems like a common and straight
forward task. There probably is a very simple answer. How do a do the
./configure, make, make install sequence on a current destop?
