make loops with ./configure
Posted on 1997-05-23
I didn't know exactly where to put this, so it's here. I have RedHat Linux 4.0, 16 Mb RAM, 1.0 GB Drive, Compatible hardware...
When I try to recompile some programs that require "./configure" to be run first, make loops. After running configure, I type make. However, the first thing that happens is config.status is run. This results in a run of ./configure again, then make again, which in turn runs config.status, which results in a loop. I have tried removing config.status, Makefile, and editing the Makefile to remove config.status. This does not happen on only one product. For instance, ppp-2.2.0f, tcl7.6p2, tk4.2p2, shadow-utils (rpm source) and others. TIA
