build of cdk/glibc fails version-init.h

Beitrag von mas99 »


Im new to this and I'm not familiar with cvs yet

I just downloaded the cvs but building the cdk fails compiling version.c.

/home/mas/tuxbox-cvs/cdk/build_glibc/csu/version-info.h:2: error: missing terminating " character

And indeed there are a couple of lines in the file that are missing terminating quotes.

The notes say report failures on this forum so - consider it reported ;)

Have I inadvertently picked up the wrong files ? It seems strange problem to have - that is I can't imagine how such a trivial error got into the cvs - unless I have a bad/old cvs.

Yeah, I've just had this error building on Kubuntu 6.1(ish), turns out it was caused by my /bin/sh not pointing to Bash - who knows why ? - im sure i didn't change it.

for linux noobs do this:

to check its pointing to bash:

Code: Alles auswählen

ls -al /bin/sh 
it should look like this:

Code: Alles auswählen

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-02-10 23:29 /bin/sh -> bash
if its not fix it with this:

Code: Alles auswählen

cd /bin
sudo rm sh
sudo ln -s bash sh
