Description

I have make-3.80 under Cygwin. To build Cbc-2.1.0 (from the tar ball) using a VPATH configuration, I run:

../configure -C

I get:

checking whether directory SYMPHONY is available... no

checking which command should be used to link input files... ln -s updating cache config.cache

configure: creating ./config.status

config.status: creating Makefile

config.status: executing depfiles commands

configure: configuring in CoinUtils?

configure: running /bin/sh '../../CoinUtils?/configure' --

prefix=/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/guomingl/Cbc-2.1.0/build '-C' --cache-file=../config.cache --srcdir=../../CoinUtils?

Hi,

looks for me like a problem with the whitespaces in the path /cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/guomingl/Cbc-2.1.0/build Can you try to put the code and to build in a different directory without whitespaces?

However, of course it is a bug in the build system, but it might be difficult to track down.

Best, Stefan

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Given changes in the build system and cbc, I'm going to close this ticket as no longer valid.
