Re: Compiling ruby - cannot find install-sh or install.sh


#1

I’ve compiled ruby in the past using MingGW / MSYS on
Windows, but for
some reason I’m now getting an error when doing the “./configure”
command, which is “configure: error: cannot find install-sh or
install.sh” using a fresh download of ruby 1.8.4.

I can’t find the file, is it part of the ruby source or the
compiler?

It is sitting in cvs:

Except that it’s a 0 byte file that hasn’t been updated since August 13,
1999, unless I’m missing something.

For Solaris I just used the install-sh that was shipped with automake.
However, I have to hand edit the Makefile to change “./install-sh” to
just “install-sh” to make things work. :frowning:

HAH! Whoops! So it is…

I downloaded an install.sh it works. They must be kinda generic.
My previous ruby src downloads came with a install.sh… Maybe it needs
putting back?

It is there just because autoconf requires it. But since it
isn’t installed so it isn’t usable to install extensions later.

For Solaris I just used the install-sh that was shipped with automake.

I expect that the problem on Solaris would solve by clearing
ac_install_sh after AC_CANONICAL_TARGET. But I’m not sure
about Kris’es issue, why configure can’t find install-sh file.
