RE: Installing libssh2 on HP-UX

Ok Sorry but I think I misunderstood the error message - I was assuming that where it says
ld: Unknown input file type: "../src/.libs/libssh2.so"
it was trying to tell me that it could not find that file - in fact it can find the file but does not like the contents of it

to prove this I noticed that libssh2.so was just a symbolic link to libssh2.so.1.1 and I removed the symbolic link and then got the message that the file could not be found so I recreated the link again to get the same error message

I am a attaching the config.log file

I have downloaded the latest version as well.

I am still looking into the 'git' business and apologies but I am not sure about the running of it on a different system first - none of my unix systems have this on .

Regarding the command I am calling I have taken the 'simple' route as described in the INSTALL file by running./configure with no parameters

Then I get the failure on the make when it comes to the 'tests' section

I have run a 'clean up ' as indicated in the INSTALL notes and started again so the config.log is up to date and the 2 files out.1 and out.2 are the capture of the output from the make command

Kind regards
Wes

You can perform the first three steps on any system with the
appropriate tools. I recommend using a Linux system with a rich set
of development tools. On debian or Ubuntu I think you might get them
all by installing the meta-package build-essential. An old
commercial UNIX is not useful for development, so make sure to use a
modern environment where all the useful tools are readily available.

Remember to send a complete transcript of the commands that you run
on the HP-UX system, starting with the command from step 4. In case
the email with full transcript and the config.log file is reject by
the mailing list because of size then please create a ticket on
http://trac.libssh2.org/

Thanks for helping make libssh2 better
