General :: Compiling WxWidgets On Ubuntu 9.04?

Jul 28, 2009

I did fine with Ubuntu 9.04 for a month and then things went wrong and I could no longer compile programs though others on the same distro could so I reinstalled Ubuntu 9.04.First step is to compile wxWidgets. Before this was automatic sudo make install libgtk2.0-dev, download wxGTK from wxWidgets then compile and make wxWidgets.Now I can't even do that, I get make errors every time and as soon as I resolve one. another shows. Widgets version 2-8-10 is the same as before. Does anyone know a current address for a tutorial getting widgets to compile with Ubuntu, I don't know whether to ask you, Ubuntu or Widgets (or understand what went wrong with Ubuntu in the first place.

Fedora :: Compiling A Program Using WxWidgets?

May 28, 2010


g++ hworld.cpp `wx-config --libs` `wx-config --cxxflags` -o hworld
hworld.cpp:5:20: error: wx/wx.h: No such file or directory

I looked at other topics with similar problems and I have both wxGTK and wxGTK-devel installed. I'm pretty sure the method of compiling is correct.

Ubuntu :: Where To Download Old WxWidgets 2.4.2 From

Jan 24, 2011

I need to download wxWidgets 2.4.2 but can't find it anywhere on the net. Yes I know it is extremely old, but sometimes old packages are better than new ones. Or 2.4.5. Its a real pain because I know there are security risks associated with old widgets but the programs I want to run only run on widgets 2.4.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Install Gapless Audio Players - "wxWidgets Not Found"?

Mar 1, 2010

XMMS2, with the crossfade plugin will play gapless...assuming it will play at all. Sometimes I can get it to work when I end pulseaudio, and sometimes not. And now it's just not working at all. Audacious has a crossfade plugin that I'm informed works with gapless...but as soon as I install the plugin, audacious just stops working. MOC claims to have gapless support, but now that I've (supposedly) successfully installed it, I am buggered if I can find it on my computer.

Guayadeque, which I found out about in the last ten minutes, is said to work with gapless, but having followed the detailed instructions on how to install it, I cannot get it to install. I keep getting some crap about "wxWidgets not found" Rhythmbox is claimed to have gapless support. It doesn't. Exaile is supposed to have some kind of gapless/crossfade thing, but it doesn't seem to do anything at all.

Aqualung will do gapless, and at a pinch I'll use it, but if I want to skip to the next track or adjust the volume, at least fifteen seconds will elapse between me telling it to do something, and it doing what it's bloody well told!

General :: Compiling The Wesnoth For Ubuntu?

Sep 24, 2010

I want to run the development version of the game Battle for Wesnoth, but I'm having some problems compiling it...I downloaded the latest version (1.9.1) and followed the installation instructions;

cd /usr/src
sudo tar -xvjf wesnoth-1.9.1.tar.bz2
cd wesnoth-1.9.1
sudo ./configure --datadir=/usr/share/games/wesnoth/

I managed to get to this point, after some small problems, but 'configure' told me I needed SDL.I installed SDL (libsdl1.2-dev) using the Software Center, but now it sais;


checking for SDL - version >= 1.2.7 and SDL_ttf - version >= 2.0.8... no
configure: error: *** Please upgrade your SDL and/or SDL_ttf version

The version that was installed seems to be 1.2.14 I also looked for sdl-ttf, and that was also already installed (version 2.0.9)

General :: Cause Segfaults While Compiling, If The Ram Seems To Be Fine?

Jul 22, 2011

I googled around but most of what I could find said that segfaults are generally a memory issue. I've noticed lately that I'll occasionally get a segfault while compiling on my computer. There's no noticeable pattern, just that every now and then a bit of software that I'm trying to compile will segfault on me, even software that I've compiled in the past.

I ran memtest86+, but it showed no issues at all. I run a stock kernel on Slackware, with no modifications to the system other than installing multilib support (which I'm 100% sure is done correctly).

General :: Compiling Old Version Of GCC With Newer One

Jul 1, 2011

I am working on a university workstation and need to use an old version of gcc (either 4.0 or 4.1) and am currently using 4.4.2. I do not have admin rights nor can I get them so using aptitude is out of the question. I was told I should compile the old version with the current one. I am very new to this sort of thing and haven't a clue what to do or how to go about compiling my program once I have gotten the older version.

General :: Compiling And Installing Kernels

Apr 13, 2010

I have downloaded the newest most stable Linux kernel, I thought I would test this using VirtualBox. So I create a dynamically sized hard disk of 4 GB. And installed CentOS 5.3 with just the minimum packages, just the development libs and development tools. I unzipped in the /usr/src directory. I setup the make menuconfig with just the default settings.

After that I ran make and got the following error:
net/bluetooth/hci_sysfs.o: final close failed: No space left on device
make[2]: *** [net/bluetooth/hci_sysfs.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [net/bluetooth] Error 2
make: *** [net] Error 2

The amount of space I have left is after it give that error is:
# df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
3.3G 3.3G 0 100% /
/dev/hda1 99M 12M 82M 13% /boot
tmpfs 125M 0 125M 0% /dev/shm

So my virtual harddisk size is 4gb and the actual size if 3.5gb. So what happened to the other 500mb? How much size should I give when compiling and installing a Linux kernel? Are there any guidelines to follow when doing this? This is my first time, so just experimenting with this.

General :: Compiling Using Cygwin - Error Not ELF

General :: Cross Compiling For X86 X86_64 / RHEL / Ubuntu / SLES?

Apr 15, 2010

I wonder if there is an easy way to accomplish the following: I made a tool and part of it needs to be compiled. It would be easy if I can automate compilation for multiple platforms (x86 / x86_64 / RHEL / SLES / Ubuntu). Is there a way to do this automated on a single host? Or should I set up an os for each distro? Also is there a way to generate RPM and deb files also on the same host without having to edit the meta files each time a version changes?

General :: Install All Files Of Package When Compiling?

Jun 19, 2010

Where is the best path to install all files of package when compiling?

For example - I want to install ProFTPd, so there's an option


, which means, that all files after compilation (including binary and configuration files) will be stored here. As you know, all packages, which are installed via package system (like zypper on SuSE or apt on Ubuntu) usually stores its configuration files in /etc/ and binary files in /sbin/ and also stores a link in my $PATH, so i can run in just by typing proftpd (without /sbin).

The huge advantage of packages installed via package system, i think, is easy uninstall process. I'd like to be able to uninstall compiled packages also easy.

I think i could be able to create some batch file, which I'll be able to use like this:

uninstall --package=proftpd

And my script will find all proftpd files in usuall paths (/etc, /sbin) and remove it using rm.

Is there any best practices, where to store all these files, or are there any (dis)advantages of my first example (--prefix=/usr/local/proftpd)?

I really don't think, that it's nice to have 2 paths with configuration files and binary files, but maybe I'm misunderstanding the basic principals of Linux... :-)

General :: Cross-compiling To Target System?

I have synology nas box DS710+ that has intel atom processor inside. i've installed ubuntu under virtual box, downloaded needed toolchain for x86 processors, and decided to cross-compile openvpn.

I 've started from compiling lzo library, but first question that appeared in my head - how i have to move all compiled binaries to my synology?

1. configure - okay
2. make - okay
3. make install - this is not necessary?

Will --prefix parameter helps me? or do i have to use chroot? cause there is a plenty amount of files that i need to move to my synology.

General :: Improper Pacakge Name When Compiling .deb From Source?

Jan 11, 2010

So I have compiled from source a libgsf debian package. However when I go to install it dpkg complains that "libgsf depends on libgsf-1" however as you can see if you look on the debian page libgsf-1 is the same source as the ligsf package...

How can I resolve this redundant/recursive issue? For now I have just force installed my package (and it appears to be working) but if I am going to distribute it to other people I need to get this fixed.

Unfortunately I cannot find f90 for linux. I can, however, find gfortran. However, gfortran does not recognize the flag -W132 and when I remove -W132 the compiler thinks all lines end after a certain number of characters. Does anyone know what flags call the equivalent type of compilation using gfortran? Is it possible I need to use f90? If so, is there a free version of f90 for linux?

General :: Compiling Library In Cygwin To Be Linked With VC++

May 21, 2010

I'm interested in modding an open-source turn based game called Advanced Strategic Command or ASC, but to do that I need bunch of libraries. Installing those libraries is very easy in linux, I know but the thing is I'm working with windows in which the building of the libraries is a bit more complex, as you probably know. One of those libraries is the ligsigc++, I'm using VC++ but haven't been successful in building the libsigc++ in VC++. I considered making my life easier with Cygwin (a unix shell for windows) and simply executing ./Configure, Make. I's worked like a charm and the library dll it produced is named cygsigc-2.0-0.dll which made me wonder is compiling a library in cygwin to be linked with VC++ perfectly ok? That is is there any difference in compiling in cygwin and VC++?
