Unhappy why I can't do "make install" of pcre on Fedora 11


When I install pcre on fedora 11, the configure and make operation goes smoothly, but can't do "make install". Welcome your help. Thanks.

Are there error messages that you would like to share with us? Can't do "make install" doesn't tell us much.

But, as a general comment, many installations require access to restricted system files and directories, so the install must be done by "root," not a non-root user.

Try sudo make install or su -c 'make install' if you are in the etc/sudoers file or know the root password.

This is the only error message when running the client from command line.
There is no error messages in /var/log/messages.


$ /usr/NX/bin/nxclient

NX is three files

NXclient.rpm
NXnode.rpm
NXServer.rpm

There is no compiling to do, and yes they are installed as root, SU .

But when you run the NXclient , it is run as a user not as root.

Why not do 1) su

2) yum install pcre-devel

.. which will install the two genuine Fedora 11
pcre packages.
