Operation not Permitted as root?


Hi again,

Any reason why I should get an Operation not permitted error after I make install? For example:


[root@localhost wxGTK-2.4.2]# make install

Installing wxWindows...

/usr/bin/install -c ./wxgtk-2.4-config /usr/local/bin/wxgtk-2.4-config
cd /usr/local/bin && rm -f wx-config && ln -s wxgtk-2.4-config wx-config
ln: creating symbolic link `wx-config' to `wxgtk-2.4-config': Operation not permitted
make: *** [preinstall] Error 1



Thanks for any help.

Does the file already exist?

I meant, is the destination file there. In case you have a previous install of wxGTK I suggest you make clean the old one first. If this is your first install, I can't say what is wrong. Does the configure run fine?

Yup, just ran ./configure again with no errors. And yes this is my first time installing wxGTK.
