Compiling. :/


Hi guys, I have used the threads, and help already posted to help me compile gaim 0.73, but to compile the source i have had to compile other dependencies and such, a couple of which i am having problems with.

The main problem is "Pkgconfig" I ./configure it and it is fine until I try to make or "make install" it, when it gives me this error
Code:
[goalie31@localhost pkgconfig-0.9.0]$ make install
Making install in glib-1.2.8
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/goalie31/pkgconfig-0.9.0/glib-1.2.8'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `install'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/goalie31/pkgconfig-0.9.0/glib-1.2.8'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
I am stumped and ny help is accepted.

Thank you in advance

Can you copy and paste the error that
make
(all by itself) gives you?

Cheers,
Tink

Type in make clean.
Then ./configre && make.
Post up the last few lines (~20) of output make gives you.

Alrighty, I typed in "make clean" and it did this:
Code:
[goalie31@localhost pkgconfig-0.9.0]$ make clean
Making clean in .
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/goalie31/pkgconfig-0.9.0'
test -z "pkg-config" || rm -f pkg-config
rm -rf .libs _libs
rm -f *.o core *.core
rm -f *.o
rm -f *.lo
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/goalie31/pkgconfig-0.9.0'
Making clean in glib-1.2.8
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/goalie31/pkgconfig-0.9.0/glib-1.2.8'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `clean'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/goalie31/pkgconfig-0.9.0/glib-1.2.8'
make: *** [clean-recursive] Error 1
So i went on with ./configure and make and make install...anyways, now it gives me this error:
Code:
make[2]: *** [install-binPROGRAMS] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/goalie31/pkgconfig-0.9.0'
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/goalie31/pkgconfig-0.9.0'

Does it work in superuser mode? Usually you can make things as a normal user but not install them because you don't have the right permissions.

The superuser you are referring to is root. I think su would stand for switch user, but I'm not sure. su can switch to any user
