Hi all,
Please bear me since I'm a newbie. I'm unable to run ./configure on talloc source download. I get the following error on running ./configure :

Traceback (most recent call last):

Hi!

I assume, that this is no configure issue - it is a "HGFS" issue. 

There are further notes about this if you search the net for hgfs and symlinks:
"This issue occurs because the shared folders file system (HGFS) is not designed to allow navigation into a symbolic link."

Best regards
Björn

Thanks for Björn.. It works..!!

Even though this is not about configure, I'm writing this in the same thread.
But although the configure and compilation goes through fine, "make install" fails, with the following log :

Note: Writing talloc.3
Waf: Leaving directory `/home/agilairedev/FreeRadius/talloc-2.1.0/bin'
'build' finished successfully (1.920s)
[agilairedev@devhost talloc-2.1.0]$ make install
WAF_MAKE=1 PATH=buildtools/bin:../../buildtools/bin:$PATH waf install
./buildtools/wafsamba/samba_utils.py:397: DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead
  import md5
Waf: Entering directory `/home/agilairedev/FreeRadius/talloc-2.1.0/bin'

Waf: Leaving directory `/home/agilairedev/FreeRadius/talloc-2.1.0/bin'
Could not install the file '/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/talloc.pc'
make: *** [install] Error 1

Please help me through.

I'm sure that you do not have the permissions to write to the destination directory. Run make install as root.

Please do not report those issues as bugs in future. If you are not sure whether it is a bug or not - you can ask the developers and users via the samba technical mailing lists.

Best regards,
Björn

Thanks for that as well.. :) It worked..! I was not aware of the fact that I can write to technical mailing lists, I'll do that in future.
