What does it say after you run the make command? How fast is the machine you are building on?

Though even a very slow machine shouldn't take 2 and a half hours to build binutils.

Arrow The Steps i have performed to compile the binutils-2.17

Hi,

Dear tanushreevk i have performed the following steps...

1. first i have copy the binutils-2.17.tar.bz2 package to my source folder.
2. extract the files "tar xf binutils-2.17.tar.bz2"
3. cd binutils-2.17
4. make


after the above step # 4, the compilation starts, but its seems like a infinite loops, because it takes more the 2 Hrs...

Now please suggest any suitable solution for this issue...

Thanx!!!

Did you run the configure step, before running make? Can you post some lines of the make output, in particular at the point it loops. Thanks.

Unhappy i got the Following Loop

Dear colucix i have run the ./configure before running the make.

but the "make" takes very long time more then 5 Hrs, its seems like a infinite loop...

i have stopped the loop by applying CTRL+C

and i have copied the part from my terminal, following is the part that i have copied from my Terminal...

This is the problem which triggers the "infinite loop". Look at the timestamp of the installation files if one or more (or all) of them are in the future you can touch them and try to compile again. Unless it is a problem with your system clock: does it display the correct time and date?

I am having the same problem -- I think because my CMOS battery is dead -- do i need to change the battery to continue with the installation?

Thanks,
Will
