Question 5.3. Binutils-2.17 - Pass 1


Thanks all that read this,

I am in the binutils-build directory and I am trying to configue, make and install.

Using the directions in the book (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...ils-pass1.html) the
Code:
CC="gcc -B/usr/bin/" ../binutils-2.17/configure \ --prefix=/tools --disable-nls --disable-werror
statement just throws errors at me like
Quote:
invalid option --prefix=/tools

Hmm, I wonder what the problem is...

Thanks again,
Will

The backslash symbol is only used when you want to break a command up into multiple lines (like in a Bash script, or on a system that doesn't support many columns). If you are running the command from a single line like you have written it out there, the backslash will just cause the line to fail.

Hi,

I used the correct command in binutils-build directory but I still got the error message.

Code :

CC="gcc -B/usr/bin/" ../binutils-2.17/configure --prefix=/tools --disable-nls --disable-werror

error :
../binutils-2.17/configure: line 452: ./config.log: No such file or directory

What should I do to fix this error ?

Thanks in advance.
