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
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.
