I have successfully downloaded all of the files and libraries necessary for compiling and making the Courier Mail Server version 1.0.6. I have also downloaded most of the Sox files as well. I am attempting to build the above-mentioned mail server in my Oracle VM VirtualBox Debian version 9.8 ( stretch ) Linux virtual machine. As soon as I finished downloading the above-mentioned Sox files, I typed in the following commands from my Linux command prompt:
at which time that command appeared to run correctly. Then I typed:
# make -s
again, at which time that command appeared to run correctly. Then I typed:
# make install ( after having su’d to my root account ).
This command also appeared to run correctly.
Then, I changed directories ( from
russell@debian:~/Downloads/courier-126.96.36.19990203/courier-188.8.131.5290203 ) using the
cd command. Keep in mind that I typed in the following command at my Debian version 9.8 ( stretch ) Linux prompt before typing the above-mentioned Linux commands:
# MAKEFLAGS = “-j 4.”
This command was entered from my “sh” shell ( the default shell on my system is the Borne Again Shell ( bash )). Whatever the case may be, I typed in the following Linux command:
after changing directories ( as mentioned above ), and that command appeared to run correctly. Then, I typed the following Linux command:
and received the following error message: “No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.” What have I done wrong? I was disappointed to get this far in the process my first time without being completely successful. What do I need to do?
