Hi all,
I just tried installing xffm and I got this error at the make install stage:
make[3]: *** [install-data-local] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/mnt/fat32/backup/linux/xffm-'
make[2]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/fat32/backup/linux/xffm-'
make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/fat32/backup/linux/xffm-'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
Is this bad? Can I still try to use xffm? I was waiting for the ebuild 
to come out but ran out of patience.
The xffm ebuild has been unmerged before trying the source install.

Thank you in advance for the kind answer.
