KDE 3.2 CVSup Help


I'm trying to get KDE 3.2 from CVSup to work.. I am using the latest kde-build script, but have also tried the manual way... no matter which I try, I get the following error when compiling any of the packages...

make -k -f Makefile.cvs
make: Makefile.cvs: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `Makefile.cvs'.
make: Failed to remake makefile `Makefile.cvs'.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Error during make (cvs)!

What would cause this error? I found no instructions saying I needed to create these files or anything...

Any ideas? Would this be from not updateing QT?

Did you run ./configure first?

It wasn't listed to do that in the instructions.... but I tried it anyway and that isn't a valid command...

Sorry about the late reply,

configure should show up as an executable file in the directory where you savfe your source files. the "./" is necessary because this directory is more than likely to NOT be in the current PATH statement. (the "./" says run the file in this directory).

Look for "configure" and run it if you've got it. Otherwise point me to where you found these files and I'll go for a looksee myself.
