Re: Incomplete Sentences



I have looked at all the readme files, howtos, and whatever else
instructions I can get my hands on and feel pretty confident I could rewrite
them all from memory at this point. They are all just a cut and paste of the
same information and do not cast any new light on the problem.  So, I took
the problem to a friend tonight who is a well respected computer scientist,
but has been away from the trenches for a while. We spent an hour stepping
through the Makefile trying to determine why we are getting the "command not
found" error in the make process as shown here:

# makefile install
(cd /usr/local/irqtune/sbin ; make -f /usr/local/irqtune/src/Makefile
CDEBUG='' CFLAGS_EXTRA='' IRQTUNE_HOME=/usr/local/irqtune
IRQTUNE_VERSION=0.6 INSTALL=simple INSTALLER=/usr/local/irqtune/sbin/irqtune
SBIN=/sbin install)
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/irqtune/sbin'
/usr/local/irqtune/sbin/irqtune -i simple /sbin /usr/local/irqtune
make[1]: /usr/local/irqtune/sbin/irqtune: Command not found
make[1]: *** [install] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/irqtune/sbin'
make: *** [install] Error 2

irqtune is present in /usr/local/irqtune/sbin/ and it does appear to be an
executable, so the "Command not found" return makes no sense.  At first we
thought that irqtune may be calling a module or library that is not
installed. So, we attempted to invoke irqtune in a way that would at least
show usage, but we still got the command not found return.

I feel somewhat vidicted now that my guru friend is as clueless as I am with
this problem, but that is a small consolation. I am tempted to do a full
recompile, but don't want to go off any new directions if I can avoid it.
Does anybody have any further ideas on this?
