Re: Can not build Grub bootloader

There is a problem with the files time and date, as the error message says. Check the directory files time and date with the command 'ls -l' and the system time with 'date'. Then ensure to set times correctly use date to reset system time if necessary, 'man date' if you dont know how, and 'touch file-name' change the files times, also 'man touch' to know how to use it. In any case u might wont to consider using grub packager 'apt-get install grub' or if u wont to build it grub-src, for which u have to change your /etc/apt/sources.list to add the src directorys.

I'm following the Pocket Linux Guide from www.tldp.org. I'm on the
section of build the GRUB bootloader

I downloaded the grup 0.95. export CC="gcc -mcpu=i386" does not give
any warning. But running configure stopped me from going on.

$-------------code begin--------------------------------------$
ronie:/usr/src/grub-0.95# ./configure --host=i386-pc-linux-gnu --
configure: WARNING: If you wanted to set the --build type, don't use --
    If a cross compiler is detected then cross compile mode will be
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... configure: error: newly
created file is older than distributed files!
Check your system clock
$-----------------code end------------------------------------------$

I'm using Debian Etch which is the latest stable version. Can any of
you help me please?
