Needing some help installing util-linux
I am trying to install util-linux.
In the INSTALL file, it says to edit MCONFIG.
Does anyone know what I am suppose to be editing in there?
Out of curiosity, I bypassed the step as I thought maybe it was optional, but I got an error and confirmed editing MCONFIG is mandatory:
make: Entering directory `/home/n/Desktop/util-linux-2.9i/lib'
gcc -c -I../lib -pipe -O3 -m486 -fomit-frame-pointer err.c -o err.o
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-m486"
make: *** [err.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/n/Desktop/util-linux-2.9i/lib'
make: *** [all] Error 1

Do you have a reason to compile util-linux from source?
a) version 2.9 is old
b) util-linux is quite essential
It should already be installed.
Check with your package tools:
rpm -qa |grep util-linux
dpkg -l |grep util-linuxYou must always face the curtain with a bow.
