General :: Compile And Install Application From Command Line?

Sep 21, 2010

I am going to compile and install my first linux application from the command line. The program is the port scanner program NMAP, and I am looking at the documentation to learn how to do it. I saw this thread [URL], and I just want to make sure I understand what it is I'm doing.

bzip2 -cd nmap-5.35DC1.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
cd nmap-5.35DC1
./configure
make
su root
make install

"bzip2 -cd nmap-5.35DC1.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -"
Here I am calling the bzip2 program to work with a specified file. look for the file nmap-5.35DC1.tar.bz2 in the current diretory (-cd) and to pipe (redirect) something, this is where I get lost, I think. And I know what x & v mean but not f, or what that has to do with the previous commands.

cd nmap-5.35DC1
Chage to the named directory.
./configure
I assume this is a command?
make
Builds an executable
su root
make install
not sure what the difference is between this and the above.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Install GCC To Compile Java On The Server Using Command Line

Feb 21, 2011

I'm using a webhosting server running CentOS, and I'm trying to install GCC to compile Java on the server. Since I'm new to Linux and don't have root privileges, I'm having trouble installing this. I need to install this using command-line. I don't know if I should compile from source (which I downloaded off the "gcc.gnu.org" website) or if I need to install a binary or something. Can I even install anything without root privileges?

Programming :: Passing Command-line Arguments To Qglviewer Application?

Jul 13, 2009

how to use QGLviewer. I want to give my program a file name as a command line argument. All of the sample programs I find have a main.cpp file like this:

Quote:

#include <QApplication>
#include "window.h"
int main(int argc, char *argv[])

[code]....

Then the Window class, which is derived from QGLViewer, does all the program's actual work. If I want access to argc and argv, for example, to open and read a file that's passed as an argument, what would handle that? Is there a built-in way to get the arg variables to the window class, or do I need to just write a loadfile function and pass them?

I have Slackware 13-64 bit and I would like to cross-compile some Fortran and C programs to windows 32 and 64 bit applications. The Linux versions utilize X11 for the graphical users interface.

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 And Command Line Scripts - Error - Android: Command Not Found

Mar 26, 2011

I know my way around MS Windows much better, but I just don't feel right trying to program something for Android on a Microsoft operating system. I am interested in Android programming so I followed the instructions on [URL] to install the environment on my computer...

I just installed the JDK, SDK, Eclipse successfully (or I assume):

* When I get to Step 4 where I'm supposed to run 'android' it will not run. I get the error message "android: command not found" (I am definitely in the right directory).

** When I double-click it in nautilus, it opens up in gedit. I can set the permissions in nautilus (through the properties - Allow executing file as a program) and get it to work,

My system:

Intel i7
Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat
android-sdk-linux-x86
eclipse 3.6.2

Fedora :: Compile From Source - Install Buddi Budget Manager And The ./configure Command Doesn’t Work

Nov 24, 2009

Ive been using linux for a few months now and every now and again i come accross a program that doesnt have a rpm package but says that it can be installed on Fedora using source. I'm familiar with build essentials and the following commands:-

tar xzvf package.tar.gz
cd package
./configure
make
make install

but from what i have read fedora uses a differnet compiler. I'm trying to install Buddi budget manager and the ./configure command doesnt work, which im guessing is because it doesnt have a configure file? Can anyone confirm how to compile from source and whether there are any tutorials specific to fedora.
