Cross-compiling error when compiling 2.6.1...

Discussion in 'Python' started by Garrett Cooper, Feb 24, 2009.

  1. I come across the following error:

    checking for chflags... configure: error: cannot run test program
    while cross compiling
    See `config.log' for more details.
    make-3.81[1]: ***
    [/nobackup/garrcoop/python_upgrade/contrib/python/obj-mips32/Makefile]
    Error 1
    make-3.81[1]: Leaving directory `/nobackup/garrcoop/python_upgrade'
    make-3.81: *** [all] Error 2

    The blurb from configure that does this test says:

    # On Tru64, chflags seems to be present, but calling it will
    # exit Python

    Basically this testcase (while valid for Tru64) doesn't work with many
    cross-compilation environments. Couldn't test instead be disabled, but
    the compilation continue with a warning? Erroring out the build seems
    like a silly decision...

    Thanks,
    -Garrett
