Hi i'm NewBie , i just install Red Hat 9
and now i wanna install DVB Card (Pent@Value) for Down link from Satelline.

I download new Driver for Linux from there website
I found Linux Driver. Its a tar file.
I open it and read the README file about installation instruction this

* Linux kernel 2.4.x or greater
* It be tested on kernel 2.4.0, 2.4.1, 2.4.2, 2.4.3, 2.4.4, 2.4.5, 2.4.6, 2.4.7, 2.4.8 2.4.9 2.4.10 2.4.12 2.4.14 2.4.15 2.4.16 2.4.17,2.4.18
* autoheader v2.13 or above
* autoconf v2.13 or above
* aclocal v1.5 or above
* automake v1.5 or above
* gtk+,gdk v1.1.2 or above for only pentavalx
* glib v1.1.3 or above for only pentavalx
* X11R5 (or above) and libraries for only pentavalx

Following are the installation instructions

shell> tar zxvf pentaval-(RHx-)x.x.x.tar.gz
shell> cd pentaval-(RHx-)x.x.x
shell> autoheader
shell> autoconf
shell> aclocal
shell> automake
shell> ./configure
shell> make clean
shell> make
shell> make install (You have to be the root user.)

What i do is untar the file pentaval-RH7x-.x.x.tar.gz and then
shell>tar zxvf pentaval-RH7x-.x.x.x.tar.gz (workfine)
shell> cd pentaval-(RH7x-)x.x.x (workfine)
shell> autoheader (workfine)
shell> autoconf (workfine)
shell> aclocal (workfine)
shell> automake (workfine)

Now when i try to enter command
[root@Hummer pentaval-RHx-2.1.10]# ./configure

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
/pentaval-RHx-2.1.10/config/missing: Unknown `--run' option
Try `/pentaval-RHx-2.1.10/config/missing --help' for more information
configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing

shell>make clean (workfine)

Then when i enter commad

[root@Hummer pentaval-RHx-2.1.10]# make install

Why do you make clean before you make install? Doesn't make clean, clean out your source tree which means getting rid of anything that was compiled? Or am i just making that up?

a make clean normally removes compiled files ... so doing it before or after ./configure shouldn't make any difference .... so as long as you do it before make, everything will be alright....I think they are just removing potentially bad previous make attempts before issuing make again....

I noticed that you did make clean, followed by make install .... but you need a make after make clean and before make install. I would do the make clean before ./configure

so the order I would use is:

make clean
make install
