Unhappy What does that mean ?


When I try to run make almost all the time I get error messages like:
make all-recursive
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/tekno/Documents/pkgconfig-0.15.0/glib-1.2.8'
Making all in .

can you actually see the word "error" anywhere in there?

Try running "make 2>&1|tee make.log". This will spit out all messages to screen and dump it to the file make.log so you can "less make.log" or "grep make.log -ie error" later on. If make turns out fine, try running ""make -n install 2>&1|tee noinst.log". This will run make with the install target w/o actually installing. It kinda goes tru the motions, and as before you get a log to less/grep for details/errors.
