Make Install not Working

Post by java »

When I tried to run the make install command in terminal I got this error. Does anyone have any ideas on what is happening.

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/install -m 0700 -d /home/java/bin
/usr/bin/install -m 0700 src/ircd /home/java/bin/unrealircd
/usr/bin/install -m 0700 -d /home/java/doc

Apparently during ./Config you told UnrealIRCd to install to /home/java
This is unusual, you should install it to something like /home/java/unrealircd

Run this (and answer the second question correctly during ./Config):

Code: Select all

make clean
make install
Once that works, remove the mess you previously created in your home directory (such as /home/java/bin, /home/java/conf, and so on).
