There is definitely a problem here. I got the same error when trying to
compile zeromq using its own configure script.
I ended up doing a 'yum install uuid* and got 7 or 8 packages....but got
the same error.
This was all AFTER the compile had failed with a 'no rule for install'
error in the zeromq folder. There is no Makefile made in the folder. I
presume the Makefile in the parent (external) level is supposed to work,
but *it don't!*.
Others here have got this to work. Pointers please! (And quickly! the
mythbox is down!).
Oh. git clone of mythtv.git, yesterday afternoon.
