problem with installing bison


Hi All,

I am getting the following error while installing bison. What is the cause and change in installation? I am using Ubuntu 11.10. I did ./configure and then make which gave the error.

make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/newuser/Desktop/bison-2.4.1.dfsg/src'
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/newuser/Desktop/bison-2.4.1.dfsg/src'
Making all in doc
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/newuser/Desktop/bison-2.4.1.dfsg/doc'
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `bison.texinfo', needed by `bison.info'. Stop.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/newuser/Desktop/bison-2.4.1.dfsg/doc'

Hi,

were there any errors after running configure? Regardless, Ubuntu 11.10 has been unsupported/EOL for more than a year. You should upgrade or reinstall a current/supported OS and then install bison using your package manager. Eg on a supported version of Ubuntu you would only need to run the follwing to install bison
Code:
sudo apt-get install bison
