Question glibc configuration problems


Hello,

I'm running RedHat 8 on my box here and I'm having some problems.
I'm going to install glibc 2.3.2. I'm unpacking it into /usr/local, but when running ./configure, an error message appears saying: "you must configure in a separate build directory". What does that mean?

Try ./configure --help to see what argument to give ./configure to specify a directory for it to place it's files.

Thanks for the reply.

But if I use ./configure --prefix=/usr/local, the same error message appears.

I was having the same problem and I managed to get the program configure. What I did was:
untared the folder to /home/jarin/Desktop/glibc-2.3.2
Created the folder glibc-build on the Desktop
then I ran the configure script form the Desktop:
./Desktop/glibc-2.3.2/configure prefix=/home/robert/Desktop/glibc-build
If you have the linuxthread files add the enable add-on function.
That should be it. Hope this helps and good-luck

Thanks a lot! It worked! Sorry for the late reply.
I finally made it configure now. However, I don't think it's properly installed yet, cause when typing "which glibc" nothing is showing.
Sorry, I'm kinda new to this, but should there be a "make install" thing or something like that?
