Title:Problems compiling plugins under Solaris 8 with GNU make
FAQ ID:F0077
Submitted By:Jim Carroll 
Last Updated:10/03/2002

Description:

I'm using GNU make (gmake). I'm trying to compile the Nagios plugins (v.1.3-beta1) under Solaris8 and am running into this problem:

$ make
cd . &&
/bin/sh: syntax error at line 1: `end of file' unexpected
make: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 2

Help! How can I make it build properly?

 

Solution:

There are 3 files which you need to touch (in order). This is what you need to do to make it work:

   make
   touch aclocal.m4
   make
   touch Makefile.in
   make
   touch configure
   make

That should do it!
