Cannot Stat Error

I'm not sure where to post this so I'll try it here.

I'm trying to load a software package to my server and I keep getting a cannot stat error. I'll post the error line below along with my configuartaion line. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction. Thanks!

This is the error.

root@host [/home/tilted8c/backtalk-1.4.9]# make install-scripts(cd
(cd script; make install-scripts)mak
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/tilted8c/backtalk-1.4.9/script'../

for file in $dir/*.bt; do \
/usr/bin/install -c -o nobody -m 644 $file /home/tilted8c/script/$file; \

done; \don

Here is my configure command

env CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/mysql LDFLAGS=-L/usr/lib/mysql \
./configure --with-mysql

./configure --htmldir=/home/tilted8c/public_html --htmlurl=http://www.tilted8.com --cgidir=/home/tilted8c/cgi-bin --cgiurl=http://www.tilted8.com/cgi-bin --httpd-id=nobody --owner-id=nobody --prefix=/home/tilted8c --login=form --auth=sql --ident=authfile --session=file --with-sql --enable-edituser --enable-attachments --with-sendmail --with-aspell --userlevels=1 --with-mysql --with-suexec

I can provide the entire output if necessary.

thanks again

I do not see where your problem is. A cannot stat error literally means the file(s) or directory do not exist - or you do not have the correct permissions.

If you know where the event directory is located, start looking there for permissions, and file existence.
