This is a good starter for new users who want to try compiling for the 1st time..
Mention of dependencies and the DevX kit was a good point to add as well.

Thanx for the post. Very Happy

Very Happy Hello,
With Puppy "configure" is not always enough.
Try "./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu"

Also better to untar directly:
"tar -xvf file" in the directory as xarchive can occasionally miss things due to permissions other distros use.

Look into "src2pkg"
It can compile pets from source automagically..
Brilliant really. But Im old school. Like getting my hands dirty!

Thanks mrpete and puppyluvr for your input.I am certainly not the first to do a picture "how to" and I hope I won't be the last as this idea was nicked from others. There are many who have forgotten more than I will ever know or have time enough left to learn Crying or Very sad but if only a few will take the time and effort to
instruct new inductees to Puppy with understandable,step by steps then I believe Puppy Linux will "Live long and prosper" (Spock) Very Happy cheers

Very Happy Hello,
src2pkg is not required to compile stuff manually, as in your demonstration.
src2pkg is a program which allows, when installed, you to open a terminal and do:
"src2pkg directory"
and it does it all for you..
(Configure/make/install to directory/convert to package)

I have tried to compile several programs including 'soundjack' using this method but always get an error message:
Code:
# ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Any tips about what I am doing wrong? I'm using Slacko 5.6

***
EDIT : - Sorry - my bad. I haven't installed the devx yet. I guess that must be the problem
***


Here is what I see inside the extracted soundjack source directory:
