Right all my problem occurs at chapter 6 installing Glibc I've had a
look at a trace from the configure stage of the operation and there is
a line in it:
checking for autoconf... no
*** These auxiliary programs are missing or incompatible versions: autoconf
*** some features will be disabled.
*** Check the INSTALL file for required versions.
Is this a problem? I don't think it was mentioned in Chapter 5
I don't have any errors produced in the "make" but I do have a few
errors in the "make -k check":
make: [/source/glibc/glibc-build/posix/annexc.out] Error 1 (ignored)
Didn't expect signal from child: got `Aborted'
make: *** [/source/glibc/glibc-build/nptl/tst-cancel1.out] Error 1
make: Target `tests' not remade because of errors.
make: Leaving directory `/source/glibc/glibc-2.5.1/nptl'
make: *** [nptl/tests] Error 2
make: Target `check' not remade because of errors.
make: Leaving directory `/source/glibc/glibc-2.5.1'
make: *** [check] Error 2
Which ever the problem is the glibc will not install?
