I was following this tutorial to clone Alexa. At the bottom, I was installing AirPlay with this command:

sudo ./Build install

I got this error:

Building Net-SDP
ERROR: Can't create '/usr/local/man/man1'
mkdir /usr/local/man: File exists at /usr/share/perl/5.20/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 476.

 at /usr/share/perl5/Module/Build/Base.pm line 3560.

I used the file manager to go to usr/local and found that man has a red triangular symbol, which says symbolic link. This might be related to the error.

How do I fix this?

  • Have you asked the person who created the tutorial? They will be in the best position to advise. – joan Apr 8 '17 at 16:00
  • I looked online and makezine has the exact same tutorial for installing AirPlay, as do many other articles. This installation that I used is unrelated to Amazon Echo. @joan – Nick Solonko Apr 8 '17 at 19:25
