Hello there,

I am new to UNIX world,  I followed the instructions to download GUN C 3.4.2:

gcc_small-3.4.2-sol9-sparc-local.gz The GNU C compiler and related programs - installs in /usr/local

It created lib and bin directory with gcc as compiler; however where is the make file??

Added PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin

I try to type "make" and it said make not found !   What else do I need to do?

    Hi wonggla,
    So what happens if you do this before you run make

    export PATH

    Well yes but you are making it... You were making make ... =) You just had a problem with your paths. Glad to be of some help.
