    Targetting 'make install'


    I want to install coreutils to '/media/UUID/'. When I do 'make install', it installs it to my current Linux installation.

    I tried to chroot to '/media/UUID/', but this doesn't work as '/media/UUID/bin/bash' does not exist.

    Is it possible to target a make install to a specific root path?

    Is this by any chance the same question you were asking about in this thread?
    If so, I would advise keeping the discussion in one post...

    First, easier to avoid crossed advice.
    Second, double posting is against Forum Rules.

    Wow, you spent your Friday night following me around on this forum!

    If you read the other post, you would see it is in relation to 'chroot', where this post is in regards to 'gcc - make'.

    You really should stop wasting my time and get the out of my thread, and probably out of the house for the matter, instead of spending your Friday night forum stalking and preaching as a saint Maritain T&C crusader.

    Hey... you ask advice on a forum, you get folks who access that forum from various locations.
    If you don't like it, don't ask.
    I guess you should spend more time with Google and reference manuals.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    You set the installation path with the configure script. Then when you "make install" it will copy stuff to the prefix you specified to the configure script.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
