I've been trying to run ./ltib from ltib-e500mc-20091218 on a number of different linux distributions, including an older distribution that Freescale recommended (Deb. 4.0r7), but also Ubuntu 9.10,Fedora 12 and currently Debian 5.04. I get to the point where I get the following error:   

Processing platform: host support

Processing: rpm-fs

Build path taken because: no prebuilt rpm,
Try rpm-4.0.4.tar.gz.md5 from the GPP

These packages failed to build:

Several comments

1) It looks like it can't access the GPP.  I am behind a proxy but I have set http_proxy.

2) I have manually downloaded rpm-4.0.4.tar.gz but when I attempt to run ./configure it dies.

Is there somewhere specific that I can put rpm-4.0.4.tar.gz so ltib can find it?

 

Also, on Debian I have been unable to install the rpm-build package.  Can someone tell me how to do that?

Here's what Aptitude says:

 

debianls:/home/ls# aptitude install rpm-build

"Aptitude install alien"  worked fine.

Thanks
