Extract source-2. ./configure-3. make-4. make install-generally source code are in archive/compressed format, you should extract or uncompress first. suppose you got the file named test.tar.gz - first uncompress using gunzip test.tar.gz - second extract from archive : tar -xvf test.tar - in the console (in current working directory) type ./configure when completed check for any errors. if there are no errors you will want to type make. again check that there are no errors and then type make install. so installation process is i. extract from compress/archived files ii. use ./configure to check errors iii. use make to make executables files iv. use make install to install the proper program on proper directories.
