1. Seems like you didn't run 'make' as per the instructions on the screen.

2. Don't try to hack a real website. That shit is illegal and get you into all sorts of trouble.

Do you realise you've just posted a nice bit of evidence of yourself trying to hack a Google mailbox? Even if this is your own mailbox Google doesn't allow this type of thing and we don't condone it, please only use tools like this against systems you have permission to run them against.
