#3896 closed defect (fixed)

./configure shipped in mythplugins-0.20.2.tar.bz2 should check mythtv config existance

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: paulh
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.21
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords:

Description

From configure, lines:

521 # bring in mythtv config 522 rm mythconfig.mak 2> /dev/null 523 ln -s $prefix/include/mythtv/mythconfig.mak mythconfig.mak

Should include a check that $prefix/include/mythtv/mythconfig.mak exists before creating the symlink and error out if it does not, otherwise the user gets the confusing message if they do not specify the correct prefix on the command line:

Project ERROR: Please run ./configure

Workaround is to remove mythconfig.mak symlink, confirm that $prefix/include/mythtv/mythconfig.mak exists, then rerun configure with the proper --prefix parameter as appropriate.
