SN50 build issues on Solaris 8
Mon Mar 18 01:46:00 GMT 2002
I downloaded SN50-010322-source.tar.gz from sources.redhat.com and
built it on a sun machine running SunOS 5.8 (Solaris 8).
The following issues arose:
1. The top-level README seems to be a copy of a README
from a gnu tool distribution, not this project, i.e. it is bogus.
I could not find any instructions for configuring or building.
So I did "configure --prefix=$HOME" followed by "gmake"
(using gcc 2.95.3).
2. The Makefile tries to build "all-libremote" but there is no rule
in the Makefile to build this target. So "gmake" fails.
I did "touch all-libremote" to circumvent the above problem,
and then gmake succeeded.
3. "snavigator --batchmode" fails with an error message which implies
that additional options are needed to create a new project.
However the documentation
second Example) says that --batchmode (without other options) should
create a new project in the current directory.
I tried various combinations of -p newprojectname and -c but could not
batch project creation to work.
What exactly are the correct options to create
a new project in batch mode?
The docs should be coerced into telling the truth.
