Re: unable to build gdb from source



I demand that Kamaraju S Kusumanchi may or may not have written...

>From your build log:

  rmdir /home/raju/downloaded packages source/gdb-6.6.dfsg/objdir
  rmdir: /home/raju/downloaded: No such file or directory
  rmdir: packages: No such file or directory
  rmdir: source/gdb-6.6.dfsg/objdir: No such file or directory

Your problem is a combination of unquoted strings and spaces in
file/directory names; specifically, "downloaded packages source". Renaming
that directory so that its name contains no spaces (actually, no characters
which have special meaning to the shell) will be enough to work around the
problem.

Take my advice, I'm not using it right now.
