HOW TO: look like a hacker :)

ok, couldn't resist, here's how:
1) log into macosx as your admin-level user.
2) install developer tools :) absolutely required
3) download http://www.asty.org/cmatrix/dist/cmatrix-1.1b.tar.gz this file
4) in the terminal:
Code:
cd ~/Downloads
tar -xzvf cmatrix-1.1b.tar.gz
cd cmatrix-1.1b
make
make install
cd
cmatrix -l
kick ass!

PS: My friends allready thought I was a "crazy hacker dude" but this will only add to it. For fuller effect, buy 20 usb --> serial adaptors, and take all your old macs, install linux or NetBSD on them, and connect them all to your G4. Sorround your self with the screens, and run cmatrix in various colors on them all. Then go to macosx.com and yell "Moohooohooohooohaahaahaa I'm the ultimate hacker dude".

:p
enjoy.

ignore the compile errors - I don't know what they mean, and nobody else does :p

here's the url for the webpage - check out the screenshots

If I only had than many monitors. Something about the clamshell iBook doesn't scream "I'm a mean hacker dude."

Sorry if I'm wrecking your fun guys...

When I type the first "make" and press return, I get this...

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

and when I type "make install" I get...

make: Nothing to be done for `install'.


Sorry for my unix stupidity. Help?

ElDiabloConCaca: see the link at the bottom of my post for a webpage with a few screen shots.

adambyte, I'm an idiot. You have to type ./configure first to make a makefile. Heh can't believe I forgot that. And of course you need the free developer tools from apple to compile anything. Hope that helps :p

... everyone knows you can't be a hacker unless you use numbers instead of letters!!!! it's international law,or something,,,,

Well usually for complilations README's are included for help.

Have you ./configure --any-options?
You usually have to do that prior to "make", make install just installs the binaries to /usr/bin/
