No Rule to Make Target

Hello, I am a newbie to Linux. I need to install a program called MassAdmin so I can find out all the mounts on every linux box without visiting every box. I have installed all the prereq. packages except Net-Ping-2.36. When I try to install it I get  **** No rule to make target 'realclean". Stop

What am I doing wrong? I used Yum to download the tarball massadmin wich included the packeages net-ping,etc. I amd using gcc as well. I hope that helps. I am new to this so please give full commands when answering if possible and assume I dont know anything about linux. Thanks in advance.

Did you tried to do ./Configure ?

The command should be as given below.

./configure

make

make install

But I will suggest you an important thing for installing software from tar balls or zip files. After untar or unzip the file go in that directory and find file name README and INSTALL, you will find complete instruction in these files to install that particular software.

Above I have suggested the standard proceedure but I might be different with your software so the best way is to refer package's INSTALL or README file.

this is directly from the Read Me file. i have been following all of the read me instruction because I am just learning what I am suppose to be doing.

INSTALL
    The latest source tree is available via cvs:

      cvs -z3 -q -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.roobik.com.:/usr/local/cvsroot/freeware checkout Net-Ping
      cd Net-Ping

    The tarball can be created as follows:

      perl Makefile.PL ; make ; make dist

    The latest Net::Ping release can be found at CPAN:

      $CPAN/modules/by-module/Net/

    1) Extract the tarball

      gtar -zxvf Net-Ping-xxxx.tar.gz
      cd Net-Ping-xxxx

    2) Build:

      make realclean
      perl Makefile.PL
      make
      make test

    3) Install

      make install

    Or install it RPM Style:

      rpm -ta SOURCES/Net-Ping-xxxx.tar.gz

      rpm -ih RPMS/noarch/perl-Net-Ping-xxxx.rpm

At what directory should I do ./configure because I just got an error saying "No Such File or Directory"
