Make not reading "Makefile".

Make not reading "Makefile".

Post by Kevin Burto » Sun, 11 Aug 1996 04:00:00



Make breaks unless I do not use a "make -f Makefile".  It should work
100% because the file "Makefile" is one of the default files.  The above
-f option does not work because "make" is called within the makefile.

Any info would be appreciated.

I am making the assumption you are using a new version of libc here
If so, then you need the patched version of make, which is available from
sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/GCC I think...;)

Once you get that, the problem should go away !

If you haven't just upgraded libc, or the kernel or something like that,
then I don't know what it could be !?

Have fun!

This is a well known problem with GNU make. A recent fix in libc uncovered
a bug in make. The fix is on most of the Linux ftp sites. I got mine from
Red Hat:

   make-3.74+direntfix-2.i386.rpm

Look for it on http://www.redhat.com. Or if you don't use RPM, you can
pick up the fix somewhere near the libc stuff on tsx-11.mit.edu.

1. GCC: "makefile" not "Makefile"?

I have just upgraded from GCC 2.7.0 to 2.7.2, from libc 5.0.9 to 5.2.16,
and to the new versions of ld.so and binutils as well.

Now, when I try to compile anything, make can't find "Makefile", only
"makefile".  I could do "make -f makefile", but for sources with nested
makefiles, it only is able to complete one level before it returns again.

Help!  What can I do?
