Default dev-cpp question

hi there, i recently downloaded dev-cpp, but when i open it, i dialog box appears and says:

there doesn't seem to be GNU Make file in PATH or in Dev-C++'s Bin path. Please make sure that you have GNU Make and adjust Bin setting or system PATH environment variable and that make setting in Compiler Options contains correct filename, otherwise you will not be able to compile anything.

i am just wondering what i do to fix this? cheers

Hmm, I'm no linux wiz, but it seems pretty straight-forward - you just need to install gmake (website here) if you don't have it already. If you do, I think you can either add it to your path or adjust dev-cpp's pointer to reference the exact location.

Hah, that's cool. I hadn't used dev-cpp under Linux, only Windows. I should've known dev-cpp would have that functionality..
