I just put slacko puppy 5.3.3 on my computer and I am noticing that most files to download are tar.gz files.
How do I download/install them?
How do I find the dependence?

many thanks

This file for example:

http://code.google.com/p/sopcast-player/downloads/detail?name=sopcast-player-0.8.5.tar.gz

I'd like to install from the terminal and I'd like to know what are the dependencies associated that file

many thanks

Download: SopCast Player 0.8.5 Source Archive


It was as I suspected. You are trying to install source code. It does not work that way with source code. Source code need to be compiled and then installed.
It consists of several steps. Loading devx sfs, configuring the source, compiling it and then installing it.

Compiling from source code is another story, but there is whole compiling section in this forum from where you will find guidelines.

hello pemasu Wink

first compile where am I wrong?
1) I download sopcast-player-0.8.5.tar.gz

2) i create s new folder sopcast and i put sopcast-player-0.8.5.tar.gz

3) cd /root/sopcast

4) tar xzvf sopcast-player-0.8.5.tar.gz

5) cd sopcast-player

6) make

7) make install

now, how do I install sopcast player?? Have I create a pet or sfs?
can I run it directly from the folder without creating. pet?

many thanks

./configure with options needed, then check if the configuration was sane, probably you will miss some development or real libs which you need to install/find and install.

I know, but when I try to create a Makefile with the command
. / configure - prefix = / usr
I get the following answer:
bash:. / configure: No such file or directory

many thanks
