Installing Slash on OSX (make install)

posted by Krow on 07:25 PM January 21st, 2003   Printer-friendly   Email story
I get the following error trying install slash on Mac OS X Server 10.2:

cp -rv plugins/* /usr/local/slash/plugins/ cp: illegal option -- v usage: cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-f | -i] [-p] src target cp [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-f | -i] [-p] src1 ... srcN directory make: *** [install] Error 1

what is the v option?

  • I think I had similar problems with the installer when I used it. Slash is developed/run on Linux. The cp -rv is to copy Recursively and verbosely.

    You can probably remove the v and it will work


    It's either on the beat or off the beat, it's that easy.
  • You'll probably encounter quite a few more problems like this one and some VERY complex, especially with Apache::Request and Apache::Cookie modules at Apache build time since they haven't been ported to OSX. However, don't despair, there is light at the end of the tunner; I went through it and it works.
    Take a look at this article [] which will give you a lot of tips on compiling Apache with mod_perl on OSX.
    If you reach a blocking point, don't hesitate to ask, I'll try to help as much as I can.
    Good luck!
