Re: [gftp] compile failed


I've just tried ./configure
make install (after su'ing to root) and it compiled and installed like a dream.

Original Message

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...
