Make Install Doesn't Work!
« on: August 15, 2006, 12:39:22 pm »
First of all, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place. I didn't see a pdaXrom-specific development section.

I have just compiled a program and I can run it. I want to make an ipk out of it but when I do #make DESTDIR=x/x/x/x install it gives me an error saying "nothing to be done for install", and nothing changes. Should I just package up the source directory?

Any help would be appreciated.

some source code configurations dont have the DESTDIR option, you might wanna try and read the Makefile for some clues as to what "options/switches" that it uses.

I'm no expert at compiling. What am I looking for?

Thanks for your help!

it would be better if u can make a .make file from the pdaxrom-builder..
It will be easier to be debug by other contributors...
