Re: CVS head building failed
Then, I can't see why I failed to build...
Good point. I have investigated a little further...
>> $ cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs/src export -d
>> binutils-head -r HEAD binutils
It failed because of a bug in the "cvs" command. The "-d binutils-head"
option was causing it to check out the contents of *all* of the top
level binutils subdirectories into one directory called "binutils-head".
ie the contents of the bfd/ directory and the contents of the ld/
directory and the contents of the gas/ directory (etc) were all being
placed into the binutils-head directory, rather than into
sub-directories (called bfd, ld, gas etc) of the binutils-head directory.
As a workaround you could use the following two commands:
$ cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/src export -r HEAD
$ mv src binutils-head
