TIME CAPSULE POST 003

Just cuz’ I feel like it.

and because I’m waiting for apt-get to upgrade a virtualbox. I’m creating a tutorial on installing openspades on ubuntu 12.04 so I’m testing my tutorial on a phresh virtual machine. I’m having an issue on the virtual machine with make .

openspades 0.0.7 depends on autoconf-2.69 but ubuntu 12.04 doesn’t have that in the repos so I gotta compile it from source. Doing so was no biggie on my laptop but for some reason I can’t get it to compile. This is what I do:

$ sudo apt-get -y install build-essential
$ cd /tmp
$ wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/autoconf/autoconf-2.69.tar.gz
$ tar xvf autoconf-2.69.tar.gz
$ cd autoconf-2.69/
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr
$ make

make complains:

There seems to be no Makefile in this directory.
You must run ./configure before running 'make'.
make: *** [abort-due-to-no-makefile] Error 1

UHH… EXCUSE ME! I just did what you’re saying I didn’t do. listing the directory contents even shows:

$ ls | grep -i ^make
Makefile.am
Makefile.in

There are two makefiles right thurr… Am I wrong?

 

brb going to poop. catch ya on the next time capsule blog post!

 

P.S. These time capsule blob posts are not auto-published in order. They are auto-published whenever I feel like auto-publishing them. In other words, this is the third time capsule post I have drafted, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be the third time capsule post auto-published.
