Command ./configure Netatalk with Mandriva MES5
I am a user of version 2006 of Mandriva server and now I am upgrading to MES5.
According to support, netatalk is no longer support by this version (at least in Brasil), and I still have some old Macs running System 9.2 and it is very important to have netatalk running at server.
I download netatalk and followed the intructions showed at:
I was able to follow the instruciont until step 5, executing ./bootstrap.
Next, I should execute the next command: ./configure, but I got the message No such file or directory.
There is no REAME file at the directory and the only configure file it has is configure.in, a 40kb file, plain text document, its first line says dnl configure.in for netatalk.
As I am newbee with terminal commands, I could not go further than that. Could anyone help?
Thanks in advance
Were you trying to build the git version or 2.1.5?
You probably would be best served using the stable version from :
It should include the configure file so you won't have to use the bootstrap command to generate it.
Thanks for your answer. I was able to execute commands: bootstrap, configure, make, make install.
I only had a problem with Berkeley DB, but I had it in the Mandriva MES5 repositories. I think that it worked.
Now how do I install? I tryed to start with service atalk start and I got the message Cannot find atalk service.
Thant for your patience.
Have you read the manual?
Starting and stopping Netatalk
Yes, I read the manual, but still canīt put it to work.
I ./configure(d) with option --enable-redhat (I am using Mandriva Enterprise Server 5) and netatalk has still not been activated.
Any other idea?
