quite a lot of programs when downloaded and built from source need the program called "install".
cacko doesn't have it!

google returns a bazillion results when I search for this.

does anyone know where I can get the source for it?

Hi,

it's part of the GNU coreutils at http://savannah.gnu.org/projects/coreutils/.

d'oh! I was looking for core-utils.

thanks a lot!

I've got mgetty+sendfax built so I will be seeing if I can send and receive faxes on my SL-C860! I also hope to get vgetty working, and see whether I persuade the Z to be an answerphone (although I suspect the audiovox RTM-8000 doesn't route audio in the required way).

If mgetty+sendfax works I'll be putting a package into ELSIX.

I hope to add this as part of my qtphone project that I've accidentally adopted!

if you cross compile coreutils, it doesn't build the install binary! if you don't do "configure --host=arm" it won't configure.

but of course typing "make install" when doing cross tries to install everything (good reason not to run as root!)...

so it'll have to be a manual build. sigh.
