Ticket #1852 (closed bug: fixed)
Configure.pl errors in 2.10.0
|Reported by:||doughera||Owned by:||dukeleto|
Working from the parrot-2.10.0.tar release, Configure.pl complains
During configuration the following steps failed: 54: auto::sha1 55: auto::git_describe You should diagnose and fix these errors before calling 'make'
and the resulting lib/Parrot/Config/Generated.pm file does not contain keys for either sha1 or git_describe.
The exact texts of the error messages generated by Configure.pl differ depending on whether or not the user has git installed, but are wrong in either case. For a release, there is no need to run git at all.
If git *is* installed, Configure.pl exits with an error status. If git is *not* installed, Configure.pl exists with a success status, but still prints the warning messages.
