make sees "makefile" not "Makefile"

make sees "makefile" not "Makefile"

Post by Al Bersba » Sun, 05 May 1996 04:00:00



After I installed gcc-2.7.2, libc-4.7.5, and libc-5.2.18, my "make"
doesn't work.  If I change the "Makefile" to "makefile" it seems happy.

I have Slackware 3.0 except I'm running kernel 1.3.73, modules 1.3.57,
diald, ppp-2.2.0f, samba-1.9.15p8.

Advice greatly appreciated.

Unix/Linux are case sensative.

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?
