Install Issue CentOS 8

Post by YoshiKen »

I am trying to install version 5.0.7 on CentOS 8 with a normal user account. All goes well until I get to ./Config which ends with:

Code: Select all

Libraries have been installed in:

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the '-LLIBDIR'
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
   - add LIBDIR to the 'LD_LIBRARY_PATH' environment variable
     during execution
   - add LIBDIR to the 'LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
     during linking
   - use the '-Wl,-rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
   - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to '/etc/'

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and manual pages.
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/yoshiken/unrealircd-5.0.7/extras/c-ares-1.16.0'
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/yoshiken/unrealircd-5.0.7/extras/c-ares-1.16.0'
checking build system type... Invalid configuration `no': machine `no' not recognized
configure: error: /bin/sh autoconf/config.sub no failed
I have previously installed version 4.2.3 on CentOS 7 with no issues whatsoever.
I have Googled to no avail and I am here as a last resort and would appreciate any insight and advice.

When I google on "machine `no' not recognized" I only find two seemingly unrelated results on the net (about java). So that doesn't helpt.

I think something very basic must be wrong with the machine:
* Does it have a hostname? If you type 'hostname'
* Does the command 'uname -a' return something meaningful? eg 'Linux xyz 5.4.0...etc..'
* Is a proper compiler and build environment installed? Like gcc or clang.

You could also try to work around the problem by installing the c-ares system package (rpm), be sure to also install the c-ares 'development package' then as well. After that, re-run ./Config
