Question Help installing Burg from source (stumped)

I am following instructions from http://code.google.com/p/burg/wiki/ManualInstall

i've gotten to the point where it says
Code:
$HOME/burg/configure --with-platform=pc --prefix=$HOME/burg_install
which returns
Code:
bash: /home/wyzegye/burg/configure: No such file or directory
I hate installing from source for this exact reason, something always goes wrong. and i'm left scratching my head. But I really want this boot loader.

can somebody help me? I'm new to fedora (from Ubuntu, there was a bug with my wireless card) and i'd like to have a positive experience with this distro in my first 24 hours.

You did the bzr checkout into your home directory right? Otherwise that path to configure would be wrong

Re: Help installing Burg from source (stumped)

I checked out that bzr code and it works here...
Quote:
> bzr branch lp:burg
> $HOME/burg/configure --with-platform=pc --prefix=$HOME/burg_install

checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking target system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for cmp... cmp
Forget running the actual configure script for now, can you confirm that you see the configure file?:
Quote:
ls -l $HOME/burg/configure
that should show the file info (date, size and so on)

Re: Help installing Burg from source (stumped)

Well, for some reason your baazar checkout was incomplete or much more likely

you didn't run ./autogen.sh

I noticed that configure isn't in the checkout, it gets created by the autogen.sh script so I bet you missed the step
where you run autogen.sh
