./configure produces error with Glest on Mandrake 2005


Hello,

I am a little confused by this. I'm trying to set up a game called Glest on Mandrake 2005 (Linux Format Cover Disk dvd version).


Instructions say, in summary, un tar (no problem there), go to top level folder and in command line type
Code:
$ cd mk
then
Code:
$ ./configure
I switched to su before doing all this too.
I've checked the folder mk with ls and there is a file called configure.ac so I think i'm in the right folder.

I get the error - - bash no such directory. I re installed Mandrake making doubly sure I had g++ and still the same problem.

Thanks

why dont you just try and use the pre built one and install it using the loki installer

its a simple pouint and click install, then tell it to put it in your home directory.

Thanks for that I'll give it a try.
I'd still like to sort out doing it with all the ./configure, make etc method.

Is there actually a file called configure in the current directory?

"configure.ac" is not the same as "configure". I don't think you can run configure.ac instead of configure. You might want to contact the developers about this problem.
