Description Benjamin Riefenstahl 2003-09-09 04:07:53 UTC
I can't find any reference to autogen.sh in the README,
the docs or on the web site.  I learned of autogen.sh from
the CVS log entry for the deleted "source/configure".
Comment 1 Gerald (Jerry) Carter (dead mail address) 2003-09-09 11:19:59 UTC
There is nothing to say.  If you run from CVS, then 
you have to run autogen.sh first.  And if you run 
from CVS it is fair to assume that you know about 
this kind of thing.

All tarball releases of Samba already the generated 
files included.
Comment 2 Benjamin Riefenstahl 2003-09-10 07:03:31 UTC
I respectfully disagree.

I'm talking about places like in docs/Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf, Appendix 36.
That talks at length about how to get the source from CVS.  Skipping other
methods to get the source, next thing you are supposed to enter ./configure,
which doesn't exist.

Removing old alpha versions.
