Autotools on Ubuntu

0 votes

The last few times I used the autotools programs, I had to redirect input from /dev/null, or they would never finish.

I mean ./configure

long ago would run by itself. The same for the others. No longer. At least not for me.

So, if it's not just me, I'll probably post a bug in the appropriate place, but until then I thought I'd find out if other programmers using Ubuntu or Xubuntu are seeing this.

I have never seen this and I use the Autotools and their output on a daily basis. However, every configure script is different; Autoconf is a program that generates configure based on an input file - that is, it's effectively a programming language, so it's fairly meaningless to talk about a configure script failing without saying which one.

Note that not all scripts that are called "configure" are actually generated by Autoconf. The ones with anomalous behaviour like this generally aren't.

I recently installed an Ubuntu Server with 16.04.2. After installing I decided I wanted to put a desktop environment on it for access to a gui. Since I still love Gnome2, I installed gnome-session-flashback on it using apt-get install gnome-session-flashback. It pulled all of the required additional packages and installed. Upon completion I restarted the server. When it came back up, there was only CLI. Trying to toggle CTRLALTF2 or CTRLALTF7 didn't do anything. I then tried running startx and xinit. It appears like it tried to go to a gui but ended up with a blank screen. It seemed like maybe it was just missing a display manager so I installed lightdm. Now I get a login screen, but I can't get a session to start.

What am I missing? Why did installing gnome-session-flashback not automatically install a display manager? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
