I compiled Celestia for AMD 64 on Fedora Core 5 with the gnome gui and no lua and as root, a make install copies the files until it gives this:

Code: Select all

Making install in po
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/brendan/cvs_celestia/po'
make[1]: mkdir_p@: Command not found
make[1]: *** [install-data-yes] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/brendan/cvs_celestia/po'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
Specs: 3500 AMD 64, 1GB RAM, PCI Express GeForce 7600 GS with 256MB, Debian Lenny on 250 GB drive, Windows XP Media Center on 250 GB drive

Same problem here (on Debian Sarge). As a workaround, you can edit the Makefile in /po and /po2 and change "mkdir_p@" to "mkdir -p".
This seems to be a problem with some versions of autotools and was discussed some time ago either on the forum or the developers mailing list.
It would be nice to fix this.

It is fixed by using more recent versions of the autotools.
