I am trying to follow the directions (which may be old?) on the Fiasco site
for building. (I am attempting to build a full DROP system eventually.)
I am running OpenSuse 10.1, and have installed GCC 3.4.6 specifically for this
purpose. After restructuring my dev area, I am building out of
usr/src/drops. I have checked out the latest versions of l4 and l4linux-2.6
(even tried the hello alias.)
For some reason, I can't seem to get past a missing configure in the tool/dice
Can anyone clue me in as to how to generate this file properly?
I start in usr/src/drops, create a bin directory to receive the output, type
make -C l4 config and point DROPS_STDDIR to /usr/src/drops/bin, then I check
the Linux-2.6 kernel sources available, and the default path appears correct
($(L4DIR)/../l4linux-2.6) and Save the configuration.
Subsequently, I cd directly into l4 and try a simple make. It then asks for
me to always provide O=.../builddir -- is this the same dir I provide in the
config Target Path for DROPS_STDDIR ?
So after doing that, it wants me to run config again ... so I do and set the
paths all over again.
After that, it gets through the bootstrap step in dice, but fails
because ./configure does not exist.
I am sure I am doing something stupid or missing a vital stip. Any tips would
