Hello all,

probably, I am doing something wrong, but on my Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit system I cannot build fairroot jan 12. I called


from the directory /home/fairroot/jan12 (created with svn co and chose the following options:
1 - GCC
2 - Debug Info
1 - Don't Install
2 - Yes

I then entered /home/fairroot/buildjan12 (I created this folder beforehand and have read+write permission for it)

The error I get is:

Is /home/fairroot/buildjan12 the correct path?
1) No
2) Yes
3) Quit
Please enter a choice from the above menu: 2

Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?

Note that there is no fairroot user on my system. I chose this path, however, because my home folder is on a separate hard drive and I want fairroot to save its files to the system disk.

Choosing "No" when asked

Would you like to install all binaries, libraries etc. to a dedicated directory.
The default is up to now 'No' which means that all created files will be in the
source directories.

I run into the same problem.

Any help would be much appreciated.
