Compiling Samba from Source on AIX, Active Directory, LDAP, Kerberos

Hello, I asked this question in the AIX subforum but never received an answer, probably because the AIX forum is not that heavily trafficked. Anyway, here it is..

I have never had any issues like this when compiling applications from source. When I try to compile samba-3.5.0pre2, configure runs with no issues, but when the time comes to make, this happens:


Code:

make: make 1254-025 There must be an existing description file or specify a target.


it's as if configure never did its job??

I know this must be a very easy fix... any help would be very much appreciated! I have tried make all and it does the same thing. I need to compile from source because I want to authenticate to AIX 5.3 with AD, using openldap and kerberos, both of which are installed. The configure generated config.h includes the lines to build for kerberos and openldap so that part is working.


Thanks!

Bump? Anyone? I thought this would be a really simple solution, I am not all that familiar with compiling from source but have compiled a lot of software and never have I seen this... Thanks!

Hi.

I think your "Bump?" is OK, as you didn't receive an answer yet. But I moved the thread to another forum, where it should hopefully receive more attention, as I don't feel the "UNIX for Dummies..." is the right place for it.

OK thanks. I did not realize, I just bookmarked it and have been checking on it.

Wow. I guess this is as odd as I thought.. Nobody has even a guess?

What compiler and Makefile are you using?

Thanks for the reply. I am using gcc, I am not sure what makefile I am using, whichever the default one is that the configure script produces? I am not that familiar with the logistics of compiling from source, general make and configure errors I can deal with (typically missing/incorrect dependencies) but this I am unsure of. How do I determine the Makefile?
