Ticket #2308 (closed defect: invalid)
Unable to make install 3.0.1 because /usr/local/man already exists

Description (last modified by khali) (diff)
I'm receiving the following error when trying to do a sudo make install (or make user_install) on 3.0.1:
username@home:~/downloads/lm_sensors-3.0.1$ make user_install mkdir -p /usr/local/lib /usr/local/include/sensors /usr/local/man/man3 /usr/local/man/man5 mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/man': File exists mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/man': File exists make: *** [install-lib] Error 1
Seems like maybe unexpected behavior from mkdir when a subdirectory exists upon parent creation? I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 Gusty.
I have also tried this against SVN with the same results.
