[Libprelude] Specify a distinct path installation

Added by Marcus Smith 8 months ago

Hello,

I want to install Libprelude in a different path, for example at /etc/, to do so, before installing it, at the source folder I do:

tar -zxvf libprelude-5.0.0.tar.gz
cd libprelude-5.0.0
./configure --prefix=/
make
make install

Libpredule is correctly installed at the path I want. But then, when I try to launch a prelude-admins command it says:

could not open '/usr/local/etc/prelude/profile': No such file or directory.

Why it still tries to find the prelude installation at the original path despite I specified a different one during the configuration? I miss any aditional flag when configuring libprelude? How can I solve this?

Thank you

Hello,

What is the output of the following commands?

libprelude-config --prefix
libprelude-config --config-prefix

You may want to use the --sysconfdir option of the configure script.

Hello Antoine,

The output is


libprelude-config --prefix --> /usr/local
libprelude-config --config-prefix --> /usr/local/etc/prelude

I tried as you said


./configure --prefix=/ --sysconfdir=/etc
./configure --sysconfdir=/etc

but I'am obtaining the same result. I'm using the libprelude v5.0.0

We cannot reproduce the issue. You may have some leftovers in /usr/local from a previous build without the --prefix option.

Please remove all Prelude-related stuff in /usr/local and start over from the tar file with the commands you provided in your original post.
