Unhappy glibc compile headache


untar glibc-2.3.2 results in glibc-2.3.2 directory
$cd glibc-2.3.2
$./configure
you must compile in another directory
$mkdir buildDir
$cd buildDir
$../configure
all goes well
$make
make: *** No targets specified and no make file found. Stop.

It looks like they want you to make another directory alongside your glibc source directory, rather than inside it. So, if you have:

/usr/src/glibc-2.2.0

Make a new directory:

/usr/src/glibc-build

Then:

cd /usr/src/glibc-build
../glibc-2.2.0/configure
make

Not sure whether that's what you already tried...

my stupidity.....I use Slackware. Check Slackware.com under current packages. There it is in .tgz form. I feel so dumb after using and loving Slack for the past 4 months. Thanks for you always wonderful help "community"
