Re: [gftp] compile failed

I don't have a linux/unix machine in front of me, but I don't think you're supposed to type "./configure make", rather you should just type something like "make" or "make install" without the configure in front of it. BTW you may want to re-run ./configure --prefix=/usr because the second time you ran configure it may have overwrote the settings from the first time...

Subject: [gftp] compile failed

After receiving various segmentation fault errors & crashes with gftp 2.0.18, I decided to upgrade to 2.0.19. Unfortunately, I am stuck at configure and could use some help. I am running a CentOS, Gnome v. 2.16.0. Here is what I've done so far: Uninstalled gftp using "sudo rpm -e gftp" & downloaded gftp-2.0.19.tar.gz from <http://gftp.seul.org/>

Changed Install location to /usr/bin, using:
>./configure --prefix=/usr
which seemed to work.  A long list of "checking for...yes/no" ensued
