curlinstall.sh on Linux 2.6.8 (Debian 3.0)

Post by da127 » Thu Dec 29, 2005 11:51 pm

The following problems were encountered with the latest CVS:

1)
$ ./curlinstall.sh
/bin/sh: ##############################################################: No such file or directory

Fix: Moved the trailing #'s down 1 line
Don't know why it caused a problem for me but it did. Doesn't bother me too much.

2)
$ ./curlinstall.sh
*** GMAKE not installed! ***
Please install gmake to continue running script

Fix: if (gmake = GNU make) { gmake = make }
Debian uses GNU software so to require gmake and not accept make is unneccesary on a Debian system - maybe curlinstall.sh should check whether `make -v|head -1|awk '{ print $1 }'` == "GNU"
Although if there is another reason for requiring gmake then this is meaningless. I will edit the curlinstall.sh to use make on this system and report back on the results.

^^ Input from an ignorant. Hope it helps.

the first bug was fixed.

the reason for checking gmake is becasue on all nix* systems i've tested the script on which is everything except for debian.

gmake is required. if you don't compile with gmake and make you get errors during compiling.

I AM TESTING SCRIPT AGAIN
