Okay, I am using vector linux and I want to figure out how to install tarballs(that is: tar.gz, tar.bz2) in linux. Any linux, but this was as good a spot as any to start. Well, I can't seem to install. I just picked clamav and extract it, cd to the directory, run ./configure, but when I use make, the command line tells me it can't find the makefile.
My question: am I a moron that can't install tarballs properly? If so, how the heck do I do it? Or is something wrong?
