Question make seems to be corrupt


today I tried to install some new software on my slackware 13.37.
i download recordmydesktop from slackbuilds and tried to install it as usually. normally I never get problems with slackbuilds but this time I got an error.

[code]./libotr.SlackBuild: line 80: /usr/bin/make: cannot execute binary file[/quote]

On line 80 there is only make.

I also tried to install anything else from slackbuilds or a software from source but always got the same error.
I'm logged in as root.

what could be the problem? is my make corrupt?

thanks in advance

Did you install the 64 bit version of make on a 32 bit system? How about the reverse?

What does "file /usr/bin/make" tell you?

I'm using a 32-bit system.

sh-4.1$ file /usr/bin/make
/usr/bin/make: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

32-bit system/ELF 64-bit doesn not compute. Warning, Will Smith...

I would try an
ls /var/log/packages/*x86_64*
to see what you have to substitute

can it be you set a slackware64 mirror in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors?

Are you actually on -current or 13.37?

Don't select -current unless you're experienced.

I have experienced this last year while compiling some stuff. Helpful folks at the IRC pointed out that I could have updated from -current where a 64bit make was pushed and a several hours later was fixed by another update on current.

What I did was remove make and install it again via slackpkg using my mirror.

See ChangeLog on updates for make in 32 bit last November or so.
