    can't compile on slackware

    I can not compile anything. Everytime I do a ./configure, I get this:

    creating ./config.status
    creating src/Makefile
    sed: file conftest.s1 line 6: Unterminated `s' command
    creating src/backend/Makefile
    sed: file conftest.s1 line 6: Unterminated `s' command
    creating src/qt/Makefile
    sed: file conftest.s1 line 6: Unterminated `s' command
    creating src/gtk/Makefile
    sed: file conftest.s1 line 6: Unterminated `s' command
    creating Makefile
    sed: file conftest.s1 line 6: Unterminated `s' command
    creating config.h
    config.h is unchanged

    I used to be able to compile on this machine just fine, I don't think I have changed anything that has to do with sed..argh. Any ideas? I have no clue what to do, I'm not too fond of downloading binaries, I like to optimize my stuff. Thanks

    I'd say try reinstalling sed, from the cd. it should be in /mnt/cdrom/slackware/a/sed-4.0.5-i386-2.tgz

    Okay. I did that and then rebooted (I wanted to see my pretty bootsplash, and I thought it was as good of an excuse as any) and I still have the same problem. ugh

    Are you getting the same error with anything you download? have you tried different sources for different programs?

    The same error for everything. I downloaded nvclock and got that error. I downloaded grip and got that error. I downloaded xmmsd and got that error. The list goes on.

    Make: *** No targets. Stop.

    I had some similar, but not equal problems some time ago. I ended up booting from the cd/ mounting my partition, chrooting it, and reinstalling every package ( installpkg /mnt/cdrom/slackware/*/*.tgz). It worked, and did not mess anythign up. However, it is kind of dangerous...

    Could you guide me through the process of doing this? How dangerous is it?
