ok this is prolly gonna be another noob question which i feel stupid for asking, but I can't figure this out so here goes:

this is from the bcrypt site on how to install the encryption software:

"Installation

If you're so inclined, edit config.h and change the defaults to whatever you think is appropriate for your needs. If you choose not to have bcrypt remove input files after processing, or set SECUREDELETE to 0, you are likely to have data on your hard drive that can be recovered even after deletion. All of these options can be set on the command line as well.

When you're satisfied with the default settings, simply type:
make
then su and type:
make install"

ok fine i've used "make" "make install" before, however, I have been getting this:

[email protected]:~/bcrypt-1.1$ make
bash: make: command not found

ok well maybe ubuntu is weird and needs root privelages for that no sweat...

[email protected]:/home/chris/bcrypt-1.1# make
-su: make: command not found

or

[email protected]:~/bcrypt-1.1$ sudo make
sudo: make: command not found

...or maybe not. :mad: Same thing happens for the make install command.

Ok my question is why wont this work. Were the "make" and "make install" commands not included in Ubuntu 6.06?

This has happened when tryign to install other packages as well that need the make make install commands.

You're probably missing build-essentials:
Code:
 sudo apt-get install build-essential
