install mcrypt manually February 27, 2007

Posted by TSAI HONG-BIN in Diary.

Mcrypt is a replacement for crypt on Linux system. Fedora users can simply install mcrypt by running yum install mcrypt, libmcrypt will be installed at the same time. In order to better understand its implementation, I decided to install mcrypt and libmcrypt manually, and found that the install script on my system doesn’t work properly. I got an error says “../.././mkinstalldirs: No such file or directory” while executing make install. It’s no big deal, just remove “$(top_builddir)/” at line 30 in ~/mcrypt-2.x/po/Makefile and re-run the installation.

Note that libmhash is required to compile mcrypt.
