Can't run install-sh

Postby Legend_bob on Sat Apr 05, 2008 10:09 am

I'm walking through my first compile and get to the end where I'm supposed to run the install-sh script. I do:

sudo install-sh

and get:

sudo: install-sh: command not found

But it's right there. ls shows it to me! I know this is Linux 101 here but what am I missing?

Thanks a lot,

I read that and figured since I was just compiling a program and not building a deb that I didn't need this.

if I do, I'll give it a go.

You are in the right folder when you make the install-sh command?
