How do I configure glibc in a separate build folder ?
This is what I got when I tried to configure. So, Wghat steps do I need to take in order to make this work? I guess I'm just not understanding how to do this.
GNU libc cannot be compiled in the source directory. You must build it
in a separate build directory. For example, if you have unpacked the
glibc sources in `/src/gnu/glibc-2.4', create a directory
`/src/gnu/glibc-build' to put the object files in. This allows
removing the whole build directory in case an error occurs, which is
the safest way to get a fresh start and should always be done.
From your object directory, run the shell script `configure' located
at the top level of the source tree. In the scenario above, you'd type
$ ../glibc-2.4/configure ARGS...
What do they mean by shell directory?
How do I proceed?
