conftest.sh


Hello all,

I'm a first time poster, but have been searching this forum for a while finding answers to my problems. Thanks to all in the community.

I've set up my first Linux box as a testbed for different server software.

Distro is Slackware 10, which runs winderfully for my purposes.

I decided I wanted to install FreeSwan, so I grabbed the latest along with gmp-4.1.4 which the docs said it needed.

Upon attempting a ./configure on gmp, it starts, then exits with an error. I looked in the configure logfile:

$ ./configure

## ---------- ##
## Platform. ##

hostname = linux
uname -m = i686
uname -r = 2.4.26
uname -s = Linux
uname -v = #6 Mon Jun 14 19:07:27 PDT 2004

/usr/bin/uname -p = unknown
/bin/uname -X = unknown

/bin/arch = i686
/usr/bin/arch -k = unknown
/usr/convex/getsysinfo = unknown
hostinfo = unknown
/bin/machine = unknown
/usr/bin/oslevel = unknown
/bin/universe = unknown

PATH = /usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/games:/opt/www/htdig/bin:/usr/lib/java/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin:/opt/kde/bin:/usr/lib/qt/bin:/usr/share/texmf/bin

configure: exit 1

The main problem my newbish eyes can see is "conftest.sh: command not found"

That seems like it would be a problem. I've been unable to locate this file on my slack box.

Is this common???

Thanks

Brad

Another question

I've looked everywhere, but still cannot find this file. Is it even needed?

Thanks
