how to capture error messages during ./configure or make


Good Da; I have many question but one at a time. When you do a ./configure or make during installation of a program. The error messages scrolls by the screen. I would like know how to capture the message to examine my problem or to sent here for help. (smile). my system Man 9.2 , Dell 233, dual boot with W98. I have a full installation on a 80G hard drive. I was trying to install xcircuit.
( pipe or ?)
(./configure | error.txt )?

well if you'd like to do piping and get output as a file, then just

./configure > error.txt

or, if you wish to only grab the lines which include the letters "rror" (like Error or error, but too "horror" hehe) then do

./configure | grep rror > error.txt

that should do, I think... try and see

thanks

Thanks it worked but the options to configure xcircuit was to much (too many options )to bare. I looked for a (rpm) and installed. I guess I will have to go maybe to slack or built your own linux and learn how to work with source or tar files.Thanks again.
