xtrans is same file

Post by jamesarbrown » Thu Feb 10, 2011 9:05 am

Hi Pablo,

Still trying to build from the SVN.

Latest error is

Code: Select all

c66f9ffd2da4fb012220c6c40ebc7609  download/xtrans-1.2.6.tar.bz2

running make garchive

Gets around it.

This error message is the result of the file in the package's download directory being a symbolic link to the file in your local garchive directory. While printing a someone confusing error message is annoying, I have never found it to actually cause a problem so I have never bothered to fix the problem in GAR build system. Is it causing a problem with building?
MiniMyth running on an Acer ApireRevo 3610 and a Zotac ZBOX-ID80-U. Find out more at my MythTV page.

Hi Pablo,

Sorry. Never thought to consider it had done the job, just could see the error and that it had stopped.

There was no usual message

Code: Select all

[build] complete for minimyth.
So I don't know if the garchive build had successfully completed, but as xtrans is last file, highly likely by the sounds of it that it was ok.

James
