Post by saravanabaskaran » 2014/08/22 08:24:53

Hi,

After extracting the gzip file under download as well as /usr/local/src i got into the extracted folder but when i am entering ./configure i am getting error message as "no such file or directory". can any one help me on this

Thank you

We don't generally recommend source installs. What is it that you are trying to install and is there an already packaged version of it?

I moved your post from User Comments to CentOS 7 General Support since it's more on topic here.
