make: Nothing to be done for `all'.

By: Emiley J  

If you are getting this error (make: Nothing to be done for `all'.) when you 'make' it simply means that you are trying to 'make' the same application a second time.

You can resolve this by cleaning the previous make and then running make again.

make clean

When you do the m'make clean', it cleans up the previous make and now you can do the make again.

make
