Hi All,

Hold back the laughter........


According to the README, the library is located in \lib. Do libraries
have extensions other than *.a or *.so?

$ pwd
$ ./configure CFLAGS="-Wall -Wextra -Wno-unused-param -DDEBUG -O0 -g -ggdb"
$ make
$ cd lib
$ ls *.a *.so
ls: cannot access *.a: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access *.so: No such file or directory


How does one start the self tests? There's nothing in the README.

$ pwd
$ make test
make: *** No rule to make target `test'.  Stop.
$ make tests
make: Nothing to be done for `tests'.

Found . Try 'check':

$ make check
ar: pkix_asn1_tab.o: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** [libgnutls.la] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/jeffrey/Desktop/gnutls-2.10.2/lib'
make[1]: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jeffrey/Desktop/gnutls-2.10.2/lib'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
$ find . -name pkix_asn1_tab.*
