Amazon Linux - Install Nload From Source

Since nload is not in the repositories, it's probably easiest just to compile it from source with the script below.

# Install packages needed for compilation
sudo yum update -y
sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools" -y
sudo yum install ncurses-devel -y

# Download and install
cd /tmp
tar --extract --gzip --file nload-0.7.4.tar.gz
cd nload*
sudo make install
