    ttmkfdir (x11 dependency) won't compile [SOLVED]


    I'm trying to emerge x11, but as the post says, ttmkfdir won't compile.
    It errors out during libtool by insisting I provide the --tag option. Shouldn't this sort of thing be handled by the ebuild files?
    And is there any way around/fix this, as I need X for so many things...

    Can you copy/paste the error so we can better tell what's going on?

    This error shows up almost immediately, and I've tried it both unpatched (emerge =x11-misc/ttmkfdir-3.0.9) and normal (emerge ttmkfdir):
    Code:
    libtool: compile: unable to infer tagged configuration
    libtool: compile: specify a tag with '--tag'
    Normally I'd just skip as I don't know exactly what it's for, but it an X dependency, so I have no way around it.

    Erm...some more context would be more helpful, too. 10ish lines to the top of the error and everything below....just guess and see if it seems important to you.

    the lines above were just libtool being used, can't post the exact message, as i won't have access to that system for at least another 4 days.

    I've been having the same exact problem, that's why I'm still using Fedora...

    Thanks, tarus. That worked.
    Now I just need to figure out what's wrong with the console display arrangement...
    Menuconfig (for the kernel) offsets the lines wrong and looks weird, but still usable, and links arranges items on webpages in really annoying ways, unlike the links i had access to on the livecd. I tried re-emerging them, no luck.

    i had that problem until i moved my system into the ~x86 development tree compiled flawlessly with gcc 3.4.3 and nptl

    of course, there are other problems now, but at least the base system and all the system programs compiled flawlessly

    i've been using ~x86 the whole time, never any problems from that side of it. Although my system has been running slower, I think that's because of using Xinerama.
