[LDM #TKB-237627]: Installing ldm6.6.5 on new machine

Hi Jennie,

Don't follow the workshop instructions.  They were designed for a
specific platform and a specific situation (i.e., the workshop).
Follow the instructions in the "LDM Reference" link, instead.

What user-shell are you using?  csh?  bash?  If you don't know, then try
executing the command "echo $SHELL".

The ellipses are for options that you might use.  To obtain the default
(recommended) don't put anything there.

The file "config.log" will contain error-messages from the configure
script as it examines your computer by running tests -- so don't
worry about that file unless the file "configure.log" indicates that
you have a problem.

Your "configure.log" file actually looks OK.

Assuming that you're using a standard shell (e.g., bash) I
suggest the following sequence of commands to build and
install the LDM:

    make >make.log 2>&1 &&
    make install >install.log &&
    sudo make install_setuids &&
    make clean

The "sudo" command might not work for you and you might
have to do something else.

If you can give me access to your computer as the LDM user,
I'll be happy to set you up.
