gpm no ./configure gpm-1.20.7


I was trying to install gpm & found that the ./configure file is missing.

The file 'configure' is created, when you run ./autogen.sh

I had a copy of 1.20.6 so I installed it instead so it's now working.
I guess they forgot to include the command when they changed gpm version.
I guess I'll update it after I get wireless working.
Thank you.

Version 1.20.6 had the configure file (and the autogen.sh file). Version 1.20.7 has only the autogen.sh file. To me, the book needs correcting for v1.20.7. They appreciate hearing about stuff like that at the BLFS wiki. Start a new ticket and it probably will be fixed in the next daily version or so.
