[17:37:42] <bllwyd-afk> /bin/install: cannot create regular file `/usr/bin/linux/ua-lowercase-all.pl': No such file or directory
[17:38:16] <wjp> hm, /usr/bin/linux? which automake version?
[17:38:53] <wjp> or maybe Makefile.am is broken
[17:39:10] <bllwyd-afk> i fetched the code from cvs right now, but that script didnt get installed. missing? just in case someone wanted to know :) (linux, built fine with gcc 3.4.1, glibc-2.3.4.20040619)
[17:39:16] <bllwyd-afk> let me see
[17:39:50] <bllwyd-afk> automake-1.8.3, autoconf-2.59
[17:39:54] <wjp> strange
[17:40:25] <wjp> Makefile.am is correct according to automake docs
[17:40:57] <bllwyd-afk> is it supposed to grab uwadv/linux/lowercase-all... ?
[17:41:13] <wjp> yes
[17:41:15] <bllwyd-afk> just a path misdirection?
[17:41:19] <wjp> yes
[17:41:23] <wjp> but it works fine here
[17:41:34] <wjp> /bin/install -c linux/ua-lowercase-all.pl /usr/local/bin/ua-lowercase-all.pl
[17:41:59] <bllwyd-afk> /bin/install -c linux/ua-lowercase-all.pl /usr/bin/linux/ua-lowercase-all.pl
[17:42:10] <bllwyd-afk> weird
[17:43:11] <wjp> can you check the top line of Makefile to make sure it really was generated by automake 1.8.3 ?
[17:43:13] <bllwyd-afk> i ran ./autogen.sh, then ./configure --prefix=/usr
[17:43:48] <bllwyd-afk> # Makefile.in generated automatically by automake 1.5 from Makefile.am.
[17:44:00] <wjp> ah
[17:44:13] <wjp> 1.5 is buggy
[17:44:42] <bllwyd-afk> is that version, 1.5, from my system?
[17:48:52] <wjp> if you ran autogen.sh, then yes
[17:51:08] <bllwyd-afk> hmm....well, i dont know much about these things, but i dont think ive ever had 1.5 installed on this system, as even 1.6.3 was marked stable by the end of 2002 in the gentoo portage tree. but maybe its hidden somewhere, dunno, im not a programmer
[17:52:10] <wjp> gentoo installs old versions for compatibility automatically
[17:52:23] <bllwyd-afk> aha
[17:52:49] <wjp> try 'export WANT_AUTOMAKE=1.8'
[18:04:29] <bllwyd-afk> that worked splendidly, thanks
