Thread: Trouble with snapgear...

  1. Trouble with snapgear...

    Hi all!

    I must be doing something fundamentally wrong, but I don't see what...

    I have obtained a toolchain from http://uclibc.org/toolchains.html and
    loop-mounted it as described at the bottom of the page. Then I
    downloaded snapgear-3.x.x.tar.gz from
    http://ftp.snapgear.org/pub/snapgear/src/ and tried to follow the
    instructions on http://www.snapgear.org/snapgear/documentation.html

    with snapgear-3.3.0.tar.gz I get:
    [root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.3.0]# make xconfig
    cannot access `config/mkconfig': No such file or directory
    make: *** [config.in] Error 1
    [root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.3.0]#


    with snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz I get:
    [root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.4.0]# make xconfig
    make: *** No rule to make target `xconfig'. Stop.
    [root@desktop-evert snapgear-3.4.0]#

    (this last one makes sense, because there is no Makefile in the
    folder...)


    Am I missing something? Or are the instructions I am using
    incomplete...?


    Regards,
    Evert

    Looks like the snapgear-3.3.1.tar.gz file gets me further! :-)

    where has the top level Makefile gone ?

    you should have the following files in the top level directory:

    $ tar -ztvf snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz
    > -rw-r--r-- gerg/gerg 11515 2006-08-02 11:38:59 snapgear/Makefile
    > -rw-r--r-- gerg/gerg 1743 2004-01-21 09:49:56 snapgear/SOURCE
    > -rw-r--r-- gerg/gerg 18007 1999-11-22 13:46:54 snapgear/COPYING
    > -rw-r--r-- gerg/gerg 4931 2004-11-11 14:19:59 snapgear/README


    and the following directories:
    > damion@titan:~/WORKSPACE/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0$ ls
    > bin freeswan lib linux-2.4.x tools user
    > config Documentation include linux-2.0.x linux-2.6.x openswan uClibc vendors


    I then run $ make xconfig
    config/mkconfig > config.in
    make -C /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts tkparse
    make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts'
    cc -c -o tkparse.o tkparse.c
    cc -c -o tkcond.o tkcond.c
    cc -c -o tkgen.o tkgen.c
    cc -o tkparse tkparse.o tkcond.o tkgen.o
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts'
    ARCH=dummy /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts/tkparse <
    config.in > config.tmp
    cat /mnt/work/snapgear-linux/snapgear-3.4.0/config/scripts/header.tk >> ./config.tk
    cat config.tmp >> config.tk

    etc, etc. and I get the xwindow config boxes appearing.


    Any of the versions should work. 3.4.0 is the latest, however we don't have
    formal approval to release it yet.

    Check to make sure you have the uncompressed files as listed from a
    tar -ztvf snapgear-3.4.0.tar.gz
