aLFS installation troubles


Hello,

I have been using LFS for a while now and decided to put it on my computer at work. I wanted to use the alfs tool so that it would be easier. ( I succesfully ran this several times at home) It seems that my work computer doesn't like nALFS 1.2.1 or nALFS 1.2.2.

I am running Fedora Core 1 as the host. I have ncurses, zlib, and even curl installed.

./configure
make
make install


I get the following error when I do a 'make' within the 'nALFS 1.2.*' directory. Ofcourse when I do a make install that does not work either.

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz/libcurl.la
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [src/lib/libnALFS.la] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/data/nALFS-1.2.2'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/data/nALFS-1.2.2'
make: *** [all] Error 2


I am not sure but I can't seem to find out what this -lz/curl.la is referring to. Has anyone seen this?

Thanks in advance

you can get nALFS running by disabling curl and it works just fine for me. I think the README file tells about how to disable curl.

Thanks for the help, but I could not find that in the README for 1.2.2. I tried the IRC #LFS and they are pretty rude there. Any other ideas?

Thanks,
