Sorry to bug you, but Im stumped

Post by Winny » Mon May 22, 2006 6:07 pm

I am installing minGW with a set of instructions that Matt? sent me via email, everything works fine until I get to the step where I go to make curl...
( I get no such file or directory, even though I have copied the path right off of the path at the top of the screen)

Attached are the instructions he sent me, I put a comment in where I get stuck.


Because this is me, I ammsume I'm just making a realy dumb mistake.

Where is the curl file? In the C:\ file? I believe that the default
directory for the terminal is ( C:\Documents and Settings ).
If this is true, you are trying to change directories to
a file that doesent exist there. What you can do is
change the directory ( for the people who don't know what Im
talking about, that is the "cd" command {change directory},
and the terminal is your command line or MSDOS prompt)
to the C:\ file, by;

Code: Select all

cd C:\
then try it. As you know, I am a n00b, and I dont know half of what I'm talking about, So dont expect it to work, :P but, you never know. :mrgreen:
Dormant. Not really. Kinda.

Hmm, I have minGW, but as I am on vacation and cant look at it,
but in a couple days I can. Maybe Matt? will see the post and respond..

WinXP, lol read the bottom line of who wrote the instructions....

Wow big typo on my part. That line should read like this:

Code: Select all

cd curl-7.15.0     (no tar.gz anymore, its now a folder after doing the tar -zxvf step
