Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247411
cannot easily change configure --prefix
Last modified: 2015-11-19 17:32:46 EST
Description of problem:
If I configure with one prefix, then want to change it, references to the old
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ./configure --prefix=/scratch/fedora-ds/prefix
2. ./configure --prefix=/data/fedora-ds/prefix
3. make install
scripts like ds_newinst cannot find ds_newinst-bin
configure should recreate all prefix dependent files, or make should have these
depend on configure's output.
The only way I found out that ds_newinst wasn't in the right place was by
strace. Very confusing for a new user building from CVS.
Closing this bug since we moved to the ticket system:
