    Howdy,

    The install/GNUmakefile is normally a single-use install, so I'm not clear if you're re-using that makefile after an install, but that would explain why you didn't have pktdump copied or symlinked to your exec dir.

    Since I use Synchronet in a docker, my install is technically a first-time install everytime the container image is created as there is no existing environment to "update"/"upgrade".

    I've only known the GNUmakefile install - its what I would have learnt form the wiki the first time I started out with Synchronet. In fact, Ive not understood the purpose of the other Makefiles, and assumed they were all put of the build.

    Hopefully I'm not missing out on any other utilities :)

    I see.

    I've only known the GNUmakefile install - its what I would have learnt form the wiki the first time I started out with Synchronet. In fact, Ive not understood the purpose of the other Makefiles, and assumed they were all put of the build.

    The GNUmakefile you're using (install/GNUmakefile) is really more of a bootstrap script that just goes and kicks off the makes of other things before finally copying or symlinking files to your sbbs/exec dir. Those "other things" often have their own make files that do most of the work and the biggest of those is src/sbbs3/GNUmakefile which builds all the sbbs3 libraries and executables. It also has an "install" target.

    Hopefully I'm not missing out on any other utilities :)

    Check the src/sbbs3/gcc.linux.*.exe.*/ output directory for anything else that might not be copied/symlinked by the install/GNUmakefile.

    fmsgdump was another Synchronet utility I noticed was not being copied or symlinked by the install/GNUmakefile.
