tightvnc and -current


I think I've run into an incompatabilty with tightvnc and -current.

When I try to configure, I get this:
Code:
vnc_unixsrc/Xvnc# ./configure
-bash: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
Any ideas?

I'm thinking bash or sh or whatever is using a version that is incompatible with the configure for Xvnc.

Any ideas for workarounds? Or a vnc server that will work?

Running -current , fresh, installed last week from latest changelog at that time.

EDIT:Heres the result of 'bash --version'
Code:
vnc_unixsrc/Xvnc# bash --version
GNU bash, version 3.1.17(2)-release (i486-slackware-linux-gnu)

Sorry I can't help with the compilation problem. But I do use the tightvnc-1.2.9-i486-2kjz.tgz package from http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=7626 on a Slackware -current box at work and don't have any problems.

The package does work, thank you...It's a good stopgap measure.

But the original question remains:
Is tightvnc and -current not compatible (to compile/configure)?

Reason why is that a prepackaged .tgz is fine, but I prefer my own packages. Just a thing with me. That way I know that what I have will work perfect and specifically on my system(s)...

Yep, I prefer my own also, but never took the time with this one. I tried it just now and it bailed with a similar error:
Code:
~/tmp/vnc_unixsrc/Xvnc$ ./configure
mv -f Makefile Makefile.bak
imake -I../..//config/cf -DTOPDIR=../../ -DCURDIR=.
sh: /tmp/imakeZhRdZi: Permission denied
/usr/X11R6/bin/xmkmf: line 57: 15108 Aborted                 imake $imake_defines $args
make: *** No targets.  Stop.
mv -f Makefile Makefile.bak
imake -I.//config/cf -DTOPDIR=./ -DCURDIR=.
sh: /tmp/imakeduGHtp: Permission denied
/usr/X11R6/bin/xmkmf: line 57: 15118 Aborted                 imake $imake_defines $args
My /tmp file system is mounted noexec so the script couldn't get permission to run. Is your file system mounted noexec also?

No. Actually, on this system, due to diminutive hdd size, the only other partition I have besides swap and / is /root

I have even tried as root to do this, and no joy.

Any other ideas? (Good one, though)

Just tried on a different date -current, and ./configure worked, but during make had other errors...(Sorry, couldn't get them so I could post them...)

I think I'll just wait until 11 actually comes out, and see if a updated tightvnc comes out, then try again. At least the package works...

I just tried it on another box - configure runs properly but make died for me as well. It had a bunch of repeated errors (structure has no member named `fds_bits'), then it had Error 1 in WaitFor.o, Error 2 in os and Error 2 in all.

The docs in the sources weren't much help and neither was the tightvnc homepage. Not a good thing to see here on a Sunday morning

Sorry about that...

Not your fault (unless you wrote it....If that's the case, then you're a ?><^&(#$%#....lol)

Really, just a quirk I found, and was wondering if others found/fixed it..

I would have to assume not.
