Subject [jira] [Commented] (PROTON-1014) Documentation: compilation instructions refer an invalid path
Date Thu, 08 Oct 2015 13:22:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-1014?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14948636#comment-14948636

Robbie Gemmell commented on PROTON-1014:

Hmm, not sure then I'm afraid. If I run commands like you gave above, the build dir does get
populated as expected. The documentation seems to be correct to me, and describes the general
process I'd expect and behaviour I have always seen.

One difference is I get a lot more output from cmake than your snippet above contains. I do
get a similar/reduced amount out output if i re-run cmake in the build dir after it is already
been populated. Presumably you are getting this reduced output because it is actually working
in the parent dir for some reason, as noted in your output about where it has written the

Perhaps someone more familiar with cmake and the C build in general can chime in.

> Documentation: compilation instructions refer an invalid path
> The compilation instructions, in file INSTALL.md, instructs the user to create a build
directory and switch to that directory for compilation. However, no files are generated in
the build directory and the 'make install' step fails with the following error: 
> make: *** No rule to make target 'install'.  Stop.
> The users should be advised to: a) either configure and generate the configuration in
the project root directory or b) switch to the project root after configuration.
