I really don't think the XP forum is the right place for this question. It's more a question about gmake than about XP.
Anyway, I expect a target is something to be written to. So if the target is read-only, things would go wrong.
Did you already study the gmake manual at http://www.gnu.org/software/make/manual/make.html ?
when I give the command gmake.exe win32
where win32 is the target destination.
It throws the following error:
gmake target=WIN32 DIRECTORY=win32 portable copyrite headrlib argfile postlink
gmake: Entering directory `C:/optv_sdk32_gnu_cd'
perl utils/check_dir.pl portable/win32 gmake --no-print-directory -C portable WI
'gmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
gmake: *** [WIN32] Error 1
gmake: *** [portable] Error 2
gmake: Leaving directory `C:/optv_sdk32_gnu_cd'
gmake: *** [WIN32] Error 2
Do we need to have read write permission for the win32 directory as rite now it shows as read only.
Please let me know what needs to be done as Iam not able to proceed further.
