5.14. Binutils-2.15.91.0.2 - Pass 2 error!


I have reached pass 2 of the binutils and I receive the following error when I execute make:
Code:
config.h is unchanged

First of all I am a bit confused about the re-installation of Binutils. In Chapter 5.14.1 Re-installation of Binutils it says that you have to:
Quote:
Create a separate build directory again:
with the following command:
Code:
mkdir ../binutils-build
How can you do that when the directory already have been created in 5.4.1 Binutils-2.15.91.0.2 - Pass 1 and you are told
Quote:
Warning Do not remove the Binutils build and source directories yet. These will be needed again in their current state later in this chapter.
So I used the existing binutils-build directory from 5.4.1 pass 1 to reinstall binutils in. Is that correct and what am I doing wrong?

After you do the "Re-adjusting the Toolchain step" it is okay to remove the binutils-build directory and recreate it.

I have the same question only about the re-installation of GCC.

I had the exact same problem but apperantly is does tel you to remove the directories before those sections... see I printed out and color-coded the book, and those tings stick out in the red lol. Personally, I used to live CD and copied-and-pasted everything from the book, doing things on my own as necessary


And after like 20 failures (due to the same misreading you guys did and loads of typos) and 1000000000 hours of my life... it works!


Don't worry, read it carefully and you'll see where it tells you to remove the directories- it DOES say so, believe me I had the same problem... it's just they put it in unconvenient places... and I think those are NOT in the warning boxes like they should be (A few chapters list it in the text)

I had the same error too and removing the binutils-build/ and gcc-build/ solved the problem.

Can somebody give me a link where it says to delete these directories, because I read it carefully and didn't noticed that?

Thanks in advance
