Re: Error installing the C library

I kinda tried that, too, but I've had trouble su-ing to root. It won't
except my admin password. However, I was able to sudo su and then it would
accept my password. Then I tried make install-lib with that error:

$ ./configure
..
$ make
..
$ make test
..

 ** All tests completed! **

[localhost:~/swish-e-2.2rc1] webstar% su root
Password:
Sorry
[localhost:~/swish-e-2.2rc1] webstar% login
login: webstar
Password:
Welcome to Darwin!
[localhost:~] webstar% su root
Password:
Sorry
[localhost:~] webstar% sudo su
Password:
[localhost:/Users/webstar] root# make install-lib
make: *** No rule to make target `install-lib'.  Stop.
[localhost:/Users/webstar] root# cd swish-e-2.2rc1
[localhost:/Users/webstar/swish-e-2.2rc1] root# make install-lib
cp src/libswish-e.a /usr/local/lib/libswish-e.a
cp: /usr/local/lib/libswish-e.a: No such file or directory
make: *** [install-lib] Error 1
[localhost:/Users/webstar/swish-e-2.2rc1] root#


I did the configure, make, and make test, but then had to sudo su. Is that a
problem? Thoughts?


Thanks-
