Local install failure on ubuntu

Hello.

I’m trying to follow installation guide using gnuradio-3.3.0:
./configure --prefix=/home/me/bin/gnuradio
make
make install

I got following error:
libtool: install: error: cannot install `_gnuradio_swig_py_filter.la’
to a directory not ending in
/usr/local/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/gnuradio/gr

Is there some --option for ./configure I’m missing?

I tried to search on wiki & ml but found only advice to use “sudo make
install” which is exactly opposite to what I’m trying to achieve.

looking forwards for your reply,
Max.

Quoting Tom R. [email protected]:

It sounds like you previously built the code using a different prefix, then
changed the prefix and tried to install it. The safest thing at this point
is to just make clean and start again.

Yepp, make clean fixed it, thank you.
I wonder why without it only installation of python-related stuff is
broken.
If there is a way to fix it than it might save some user confusion :slight_smile:

cheers,
Max.
