Install failure: unable to guess system type

Fresh installation of 1.6.1.5 on a newly built Ubuntu Server 9.10

Grabbing scripts as suggested below didn’t help.

How would I go about specifying?

[code]root@PhoneBox:/home/dl/asterisk-1.6.1.5# ./configure
checking build system type… ./config.guess: unable to guess system type

This script, last modified 2009-06-10, has failed to recognize
the operating system you are using. It is advised that you
download the most up to date version of the config scripts from

http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.guess;hb=HEAD
and
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=config.git;a=blob_plain;f=config.sub;hb=HEAD

If the version you run (./config.guess) is already up to date, please
send the following data and any information you think might be
pertinent to config-patches@gnu.org in order to provide the needed
information to handle your system.

[/code]

A thought…

./configure -help produces this interesting tidbit…

System types:
–build=BUILD configure for building on BUILD [guessed]

Not sure what you would put for BUILD but I hope it is a start for you.

although this may help :wink:
