No rule to make target 'clean'. Stop.

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure what this error is, i made a SDL project via the multimedia thingy in dev-cpp. For some reason i get "[Build Error] No Rule to make target 'clean'. Stop." I was wondering if anyone could tell me a solution :)

Your build tools are trying to clean the project; that is, delete all the intermediate files that the compiler and linker spit out in the process of producing an .EXE file. However, for some reason, your project's makefile doesn't have a clean step set up in it.

Unfortunately, I know extremely little about makefiles, since I find them (generally speaking) very icky. So I'm really not sure what to suggest.

But at least you know why you're getting the error [wink]
