    Hi,

    Having lots of issues installing xen 3.0.3 source on debian sarge.
    I am still at the install level and when I run "make install" it ends with
    the error:

    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make[3]: *** [tapdisk] Error 1
    make[3]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/xen-3.0.3_0-src/tools/blktap/drivers'
    make[2]: *** [install] Error 2
    make[2]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/xen-3.0.3_0-src/tools/blktap'
    make[1]: *** [install] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/xen-3.0.3_0-src/tools'
    make: *** [install-tools] Error 2

    Please help

    Are there any errors before the output you posted?

    good news: I resolved the previous error by installing dev86 package (I had to use the dpkg --force - install option as dev86 conflicts with as86 and bin86)

    bad news: I am still in my error ofter error loop. Now I have the following:


    make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/xen-3.0.3_0-src/tools/firmware'
    make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/xen-3.0.3_0-src/tools/firmware/rombios'

    Unable to execute bcc-cpp.
    make[3]: *** [BIOS-bochs-latest] Error 1

    make[1]: *** [install] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/xen-3.0.3_0-src/tools'

    I'm not sure where this error comes from. But do you need to compile Xen from the sources, or would installing the Xen binary package be sufficient?
