Unix configure command error

Tech_20 asked
Last Modified: 2015-04-26
I am having a very hard time using this command. I unpacked a tar.gz package to a folder (cd/tmp) & then attempted to run the configure command and it produced this error message.

./configure no such file or directory

Even though the standard units procedure is to type configure before the make command in the install command, this procedure is simply is not working on this version of Linux (CentOS 7).

Please help. Thanks.
