"No rule to make target" when building from source


#1

Thanks for posting about your project on the Internet Archive Lab thread. I’m having trouble with the ‘make’ step while using my mac.

> $make

Responds with:
> make --directory=aw-core build DEV=
> make[1]: *** No rule to make target `build’. Stop.
> make: *** [build] Error 2

There’s clearly an argument expected that I have not figured out.

At anyrate I will be eager to use the app once the .dmg installation method has been created. Thanks for all the hard work for what looks to be an impressive app.

Hi Antoine, happy to have you here! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks for reaching out with your problem. Did you follow the installing from source guide?

It looks like you’ve missed the first step:

git submodule update --init --recursive

And by the way: the prebuilt .zip should work alright for macOS since v0.7.0b4. It’s easier to set up, just follow the getting started guide.

Let me know if you have further issues! :+1:
