Looks like all is ok. Debian etch.

Hi guys,

The problem is related to the linux environment and not to GNU Compiler,in particular to the "hostname" settings. I have noticed this problem on my box, on which it runs a Debian Etch distro. Once updated the hostname ("hostaname") of my box, it has been possible to get all the result of "uname -a" command on just one line. This is important for unreal to define the C macro MYOSNAME, therefore if you check the error line (155) you will find a reference to this macro. Anyway, a bried summary:

1) Check the "uname -a" command on Debian Etch, if it shows more than 1 line then it's not good as mentioned above.

2) Check and define your hostname appropriately.

Run ./Config script, than make and install it. Now all seems to work correctly.

Thanks to Monk, toolx, littledevil and Kry for the help.

Best regards,

exactly my thought, this looks like the uname thing hunting us again... :p

fixed in .707 (3.2*):
- The OS version output is now taken from uname() at runtime instead of
  'uname -a' at compile time. This fixes bug 0001438 and 0003320 reported by
  Mouse and Monk, where because of previous behavior the IRCd sometimes would
  not compile in certain environments.

too bad I only found after this that in 3.3 this was already fixed (which is because that bugreport is closed).
