hi dave

Thanx. I installed texinfo and compilation went on well. But i found this error afterwards..
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether g++ accepts -g... no
checking dependency style of g++... none
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.
make: *** [/home/rajagopalanp/gumstix-buildroot/toolchain_build_arm_nofpu/fakeroot-1.2.13/.configured] Error 1
i checked in the archives.. found he same query before..

I found that i did not have cpp(c preprocessor) installed(nor did  have a /lib/cpp folder). Then i installed cpp, cleanedthe build and ran 'make' again, but got the same error. now i dont know how to proceed. pls help me..

Hi Raja,

So you need to install the texinfo package, and then do:

rm -rf toolchain_arm_nofpu

and redo the make.
