Re: [Xen-devel] [PATCH v8] build: add autoconf to replace custom checks in tools/check


I was attempting to perform a 'make dist' and installing from the 'dist' onto another machine. It looks like the last line of the install.sh script in the dist folder wants to check the prerequisites from the 'check' directory. I wanted to ask what the dist install methodology is with the autoconf configuration. I can give a hand, just wanted to check if people were working on this and what the thoughts were.

cd $src/../check
./chk install
echo "All done."

Old python can not handle that new syntax:

 $ python
Python 2.4.2 (#1, Feb 16 2011, 12:49:02)
[GCC 4.1.2 20070115 (SUSE Linux)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import sys
>>> exit(eval("sys.version_info < (2, 3)"))
