While compiling rsyncrypto-1.11, I got the error C++ compiler cannot create executables.
Presumably you were not compiling. You were running ./configure
I hadn't installed gcc-c++ AND the extracted file was not chowned to root.
What extracted file?
So, if you get this error, check that gcc-c++ is actually installed (rpm -qa |grep gcc) and then change rights on the source code directory (chown -R root:root <path to source directory>).
The first part is correct, but you should NOT
be changing the source code to be owned by root
compile as the root
user! You should do the autoconf
, and make
as a normal user, and then do the make install
, and ONLY
the make install
