problems installing net-tools 1.60

Hey folks,

I'm hoping you all can help me on this one. I'm attempting to install the net-tools 1.60 package. I download the package and the patches need, patch the install, and then run the following (noted below) with the noted error messages. Any help would be appreciated!

yes "" | make config &&
sed -i -e 's|HAVE_IP_TOOLS 0|HAVE_IP_TOOLS 1|g' \
-e 's|HAVE_MII 0|HAVE_MII 1|g' config.h &&
sed -i -e 's|# HAVE_IP_TOOLS=0|HAVE_IP_TOOLS=1|g' \
-e 's|# HAVE_MII=0|HAVE_MII=1|g' config.make &&

rm -f config.h

Since you have ubuntu, why not use the net-tools from ubuntu? Is it not compiled with the options you need?

apt-get install net-tools

Did you install GCC-3.4.3 first?

Either way it sounds like you should:
  1. Make sure you didn't screw up some where.
  2. (If you didn't) Report it as a bug.on BLFS Bugzilla
