I'm trying to compile a remote project using M-x compile. I have the remote project directory open in a remote Dired buffer. M-x compile results in the following command:
Compile command: make -C /ssh:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/bob/micke/projects/LCC/ clean
The command fails with the following error message:
-*- mode: compilation; default-directory: "/scp:email@example.com:/home/bob/micke/projects/LCC/" -*- Compilation started at Mon Aug 21 10:38:30 make -C /ssh:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/bob/micke/projects/LCC/ clean make: *** /ssh:email@example.com:/home/bob/micke/projects/LCC/: No such file or directory. Stop. Compilation exited abnormally with code 2 at Mon Aug 21 10:38:31
(I have masked the remote server user and name). I have passwordless log in setup on the remote host using a certificate, I use this without any problems outside Emacs.
I know the directory on the remote machine exist and I know the remote user and remote machine is correct (I have the remote directory opened in a remote Dired buffer).
Do I have to setup anything else when doing remote development and compilation?
