mkdirhier: command not found

After migration from suselinux 9.3 to opensuse 11.1 and recompiling a large simulation program with gcc via makefile, I get the message: /bin/sh: line 1: mkdirhier: command not found
make: *** [/home/hbissem/pvm3/bin/UNKNOWN] Fehler 127
Who can help, how to find or install the command “mkdirhier”
Thanks in advance :frowning:

For these kind of errors I often find webpin a useful resource, if you look it up on webpin then it comes up with:

xorg-x11-util-devel (7.4)
Include Files and Libraries mandatory for X11 Development.
contains /usr/bin/mkdirhier

So do ONE of the following:

*]Use the one click install from webpin *]In a console as root zypper install xorg-x11-util-devel *]look it up in YaST software management and install it.

Or, in 11.1, make use of the command-not-found feature of bash. Just try to run the program at the command line and wait for the report.

$ mkdirhier

The program ‘mkdirhier’ can be found in following packages:

  • xorg-x11-util-devel path: /usr/bin/mkdirhier, repository: zypp (repo-oss) ]
  • xorg-x11-util-devel path: /usr/bin/mkdirhier, repository: zypp (openSUSE 11.1-0) ]

Try installing with: sudo zypper install xorg-x11-util-devel

many thanks, it works fine!
