Summary0000317: Compile-problem: no file "boot/ocamlrun"
DescriptionHello,

I tried to install ocaml-3.01 on an old Suse-Linux
(SUSE 4.3).

No problems during configure.
Problems while running make: The file "boot/ocamlrun" was not found.

Is there a fix for that problem?



Another problem: On this system is no pthreads-library installed,
but the configure-summary tells, that threads-libs are supported.
I hope that is no problem, here (in the compiling-options the
pthread-libs are not).

Regards,
     Oliver Bandel

Can't say with so little info. Is there a file boot/ocamlrun?
You can also set the OCAMLRUNPARAM environment variable to "v=511"
before doing "make world" and you should get more messages from the
system.

Should be OK. By default, OCaml configures its own thread library
that does not rely on the POSIX pthread library.

No.

Hmhhh. i may have downloaded the wrong distribution.
It's not very hughlited, which version can be used
even without a previous OCAML.
So I may have downloaded the version, which needs a running
ocaml.

Oh, really? That's cool.
Does it work with an old 2.0.18-Linux kernel?

Be sure to do "make world" and not simply "make".
The compiler needs some boostraping code which is installed in boot only by
"make world".
