    Problems installing pentaval-RHx-2.1.10


    Hi,
    i'm new to this forum, so am kind of excited since this is my first post.
    i've been having problems when i try to install pentaval-RHx-2.1.10 on RedHat Linux 8.0.
    When compiling & i type the './configure' command, i get the error

    /pentaval-Rhx-2.1.10/config/missing: Unknown '--run' option.
    configure:WARNING: 'missing' script too old or missing

    So i cat the missing file and this wat i got:

    [root@localhost config]# cat missing
    #! /bin/sh
    # Common stub for a few missing GNU programs while installing.

    ola,

    I'm not familiar with this program but the $1 you are refering to is not a program.
    It's script to check if input was parsed to the script.
    If you would type : ./configure -h
    it will print the helpfile.

    I'm unable to find any reference to the --run option in the config/missing file..

    What happens if you type make clean and then ./configure
    What are the last 5 lines of the output....

    okies ... here is the problem
    checking "/usr/src/linux"... configure: error: " Please check whether the /usr/src/linux is or not! "
    go to the directory /usr/src
    type ls -lha
    And check if you have the linux kernel source directory.
    The source code you are compiling expects that your kernel source is located in the /usr/src/linux dir.
    And it can't find it.
    If you have the kernel source installed create a symbolic link to it using:
    ln -s <kernel source dir> linux
    This will create a symbolic link (usualy light blue colored) to the kernel source but carries the name linux.
    If you start the configure again it should configure properly now.


    one other note: Be easy on the CAPS en the Bold.
    Some ppl don't like to read it as it is a sort of yelling.. (Caps that is.)
