I got DJGPP installed fine...but now the Allegro readme tells me I have to compile it. However, in the installation readme the only way it tells me to compile it is by typing "cd allegro" and then "make"...Now the question, WHERE AM I SUPPOSED TO TYPE THIS??????? Why must people make it so hard for people like me who know almost nothing about programming!!? help me!!! im going insane!

You write it at the DOS prompt. You should have a shortcut to it at your start menu. If you haven't got a shortcut to it, find the file "command.com" and start it.

Let's say you've installed Allegro at c:\djgpp\allegro. When starting the DOS prompt you have to go to c:\djgpp\allegro. You do this by writing

cd djgpp (press ENTER)
cd allegro (press ENTER)

Then type

make (press ENTER).

If DJGPP is installed correctly, it should compile. And I don't think they meant to make it hard for you. They just assumed that anyone who downloaded Allegro knew what the DOS prompt is.

Did you convert the source to DJGPP with the fix.bat?
