newbie new freeradius install fails to start...

OK  Thanks for pointing out my Fedora install didn't have "make" installed.

This looks much better:
Listening on authentication address * port 1812
Listening on accounting address * port 1813
Listening on command file /var/run/radiusd/radiusd.sock
Listening on proxy address * port 1814
Ready to process requests.

Thanks again,

Maybe someone can guide me out of this maze.

I have a new Fedora 10 install running on Dell intel platform.  I installed freeradius.i386 0:2.1.3-1.fc10 package using yum installer.  All I did before starting in debug mode was edit clients.conf and users file.

I get this error at the end of the config file parse each time I attempt to start "radiusd -X"

/etc/raddb/certs/bootstrap: line 15: make: command not found
Exec-Program output: 
Exec-Program: returned: 127
rlm_eap: Failed to initialize type tls
/etc/raddb/eap.conf[17]: Instantiation failed for module "eap"
/etc/raddb/sites-enabled/inner-tunnel[223]: Failed to find module "eap".
/etc/raddb/sites-enabled/inner-tunnel[176]: Errors parsing authenticate section. 
Errors initializing modules
<end paste>

If someone could help I'd be really happy.
