"Fossies" - the Fresh Open Source Software Archive
As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard
) with prefixed line numbers.
Alternatively you can here view
the uninterpreted source code file.
3 1. I ran CheckInstall and everything seems to run fine, but when I check my
4 new package I only find the documentation files!
7 CheckInstall can't trace (yet) the actions of three kind of binaries:
8 * SUID programs
9 * SGID programs
10 * Statically linked binaries
12 You may now go to check the binaries you're using in the installation
13 process ;-).
16 2. I built my Linux system from scratch (LFS, anyone?) and nothing gets
17 included in the packages I create with CheckInstall!
20 Most likely you installed GNU make from source, which by default installs
21 the make binary with SUID and/or SGID permissions. A quick fix:
23 chmod 0755 `which make`
25 Which means to remove the SUID and SGID bits from the make binary.
27 Please refer to the first question in this FAQ for the details.
30 3. I use Slackware Linux 8.0 and the symbolic links created by my
31 installation do not get into the package!
34 The ln binary shipped with Slackware 8.0 is statically linked. Replace it
35 with a dynamically linked one.
37 The one shipped with Slackware 7.1 works just fine. You can download it
38 here: http://checkinstall.izto.org/ln.gz
40 Please refer to the first question in this FAQ for the details.
43 4. I used CheckInstall to install the latest XFree86 distribution, but the
44 drivers are being corrupted! If I install XFree86 without CheckInstall
45 everything runs fine. Is this some evil bug?
48 It's not a bug. It's your driver's files being stripped by the automatic
49 ELF stripping process. Run checkinstall with the "--strip=no" command
50 line option.
53 5. I use a RPM based distribution and CheckInstall says it built the rpm
54 package OK but reports an error when installing the .rpm file:
56 Building RPM package...OK
57 Installing RPM package... FAILED!
58 And in the install.log file I find something like this:
60 error: open of /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/i386/package-1.0-1.i386.rpm failed no
61 such file or directory
63 What's wrong?
65 There's something wrong with your RPM installation. Check your system and
66 see if the "rpm-build" and "spec-helper" packages are installed. Also
67 verify that their versions match the version of the rpm binary installed
68 in your system.
