Glibc: no rule to make!


I am trying to compile CLFS on my computer with an amd64. When I try to compile glibc for the cross-tools I get an error:
Quote:
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/mnt/clfs/sources/glibc-build/Versions.all', needed by `/mnt/clfs/sources/glibc-build/abi-versions.h'. Stop.
Does anyone know what could cause this problem?

Could there be a problem with my host system? I am using an installation of Ubuntu 7.10 to build CLFS. Is any more information needed to help answer this question?

Hi,

What did the version-check.sh script tell you?

To build LFS on Ubuntu 6 I needed to install build-essential and bison which are not in the version-check script. I'm not sure about Ubuntu 7, but it's a point to start....

Hope this helps.

I managed to fix the problem actually. I had forgotten to check the host system requirements before I started to build. I needed to install gawk.
