"idesk-0.7.1 configure error"


Hi

My command:

/usr/src/idesk-0.7.1 $ ./configure --prefix=/usr
configure: error: cannot find install-sh or install.sh in . ./.. ./../..
/usr/src/idesk-0.7.1 $

"?" what is install-sh? It isn't in the package. Have any of you ran into this it seems odd to me. Is this package broken or what? If it is does any one have a fix patch...

Thanks for reading.

peace out thugs

I think you should look at your directory with "ls -al" to see where the symlinks go. I had this problem and it came from wrong symlinks to a wrong automake version.
You should make new links in this directory to your existing automake directory. There you will find the same files, e. g. the install-sh.

I saw after posting my reply, that you seem to be quite new to linuxquestions.org. In case you don't know how to create a symlink:

Go to the idesk source directory. Type in the following (omit the <> signs but do what is written within them)
ln -sf /usr/share/automake<TAB for autocompletion to your version of automake>/install-sh

Do this with every broken symlink. You see them with "ls --color" if you don't have color output. In my output the broken links are highlighted red. I hope this helps. If you knew already how to this, just forget this post

Hi,

Hey thanks for your help. That package is jacked up why would they put symlinks in the source tarball to automake-1.7 . It seems odd to me, but i did fix it i have automake-1.9 so all the symlinks where broken cause the directory they are in is /usr/share/automake-1.9 . Otherwise compiled cleanly haven't been able to use it yet, but i'm sure it works.

peace out,
groove fidelity
