Description Torsten Kurbad 2009-12-02 07:05:19 UTC
After running
configure --enable-merged-build


isn't created, nor is there a target in any of the source3 Makefiles to do so.
The version.h is needed for the source4-parts of the merged build to compile.
Comment 1 Torsten Kurbad 2009-12-02 07:09:00 UTC
Created attachment 5042 [details]

The attached patch creates the necessary ../source4/version.h when calling
make basics
from source3.

I think, this should already be done by the configure step in case --enable-merged-build is given, but my understanding of configure & Co. is to weak to accomplish that...

Thankfully with Samba 4.0 the merged build is no more, and we have a full build system in waf.
