Software :: Texinfo Fedora - Compiling WARNING: "makeinfo Is Missing On Your System"
Aug 23, 2010
I have little problem with my texinfo, it seems to be installed but during the compilation I get this error:
WARNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system. You should only need it if you modified a `.texi' or `.texinfo' file, or any other file indirectly affecting the aspect of the manual. The spurious call might also be the consequence of using a buggy `make' (AIX, DU, IRIX). You might want to install the `Texinfo' package or the `GNU make' package. Grab either from any GNU archive site.
I'm using fedora 12 with sun virtualbox and I want to install texinfo 4.9 from texinfo-4.9.tar.bz2
-I extracted the archive in a folder..........ok -In a terminal: ./configure......................ok -In the terminal: make...........................error
I am getting:
info.c: In function 'main': info.c:161: error: expected expression before '/' token info.c:327: error: expected expression before '/' token info.c:327: error: too few arguments to function 'info_add_path' ...
and a lot more. For some personnal reasons I must install it this way, I can't upgrade fedora, gcc...

I've been trying to install the latest version of Emacs from source but I'm running into a trouble. The commands "./configure" and "make" work just fine. However, when I run "sudo checkinstall" I get a message saying that makeinfo is missing:

Having problems compiling a program on a new server. It compiles just fine on Ubuntu 8.0.4 server but a new install of the latest Ubuntu Server edition it throws out a bunch of warnings on configure. I am assuming I am missing some lib's or something of the sort.

I'm doing a group project using some UML stuff. I tried install graphiz and it installed find but apparently it keeps telling me I'm missing dot when compiling the UML (tells me dot should be at /usr/bin/dot which it is, but it can't find it). I also tried a command "java -jar plantuml.jar -testdot" (which was suggested where the UML should have been) and the jar file couldn't be found.
I've recently installed Fedora 14 (x86_64) on my Alienware m15x laptop which has a NVIDIA GTX 260m onboard. Now I have followed leigh123linux's guide to installing those drivers on F14. The installation is a success and everything seems to be in working order, until the system randomly logs the user out and/or restarts the session with no warning. The screen goes black and the nvidia logo appears and then its back to the login screen again. This can happen many times with no apparent stop insight. This does not happen with the default F14 drivers that come with the installation, I have tried several re installations of the Fedora OS and several re installations of the NVIDIA driver, i still have the same problems.
I have tried to compile several programs from source code and have into a similar error in each case. I try make the program and I get an error like: fail program confsdefs.h. Reading further into the log file, I see there is a long list of missing library files when I compile something like Samba 3.5.x:
I have searched for dependency information and used apt-get to add anything I can find. How can I identify and find the dependencies for source? I have checked the source documentation though typically does not list required packages. My other question is how to check the path used to locate the libraries? Given the length of the missing library list, I think the problem may be configuring make.
I had to compile openssh so I could have a version with the HPN-SSH patch applied. The compile seems to have gone fine, but oddly enough I have now have no ssh script in my /etc/init.d directory. So I have no easy way of automatically starting openssh-server.Here are the configure options I used when compiling openssh:
in 11.4 the texi2dvi version is 1.135, based on texinfo version 4.13. Now these are old buggy versions (see e.g. texi2dvi: locale-dependent error in egrep [A-z] ), causing that documentation can not be built, for example when building gcc. Now one would hope that Suse provides updates (the latest version of texinfo is 4.9), but I can't find them?
It seems to me that the installation of texinfo is a bit more complicated, because of the integration with your system, so I hesitate to install texinfo myself. Yast should have a bug-reporting facility, where one could easily report such issues. Hope somebody can help (we have to install various pieces of software, which call texi2dvi, which then breaks, making the whole build breaks, and it would be not easy to change the build of these
I have problem with compiling server... I finish ./configure without any problem, and now, when I write make, I see that: Quote: Makefile:360: *** missing separator. Stop. I read something, and know, that error shows when there are problem with spaces. And I should use there a tab. On line 360 I have:
Code: @AMDEP_TRUE@@am__include@ @am__quote@./$(DEPDIR)/account.Po@am__quote@ I try to change this one space inside to tab, but that doesnt work for me... Terminal always show error in the same line.
I have this problem constantly and it tells me to install such and so a prog, but I do locate [prog] and it shows up in 80 places so it's obviously installed. I just have no clue how to attach the two or to set up anything in the ./config set up so it leaves me completely stuck. So what's the trick when it's already in there? Also..it says I just joined? in 2008.

I am running F10KDE, and I got fed up with K3b. I am dual-booting with WinVista. I want to upgrade to F11KDE, and keep Vista, too. So, I went to Vista and ran Roxio to make a bootable iso image of the F11 file. Success. Went to boot with the DVD I had just created as a supposed bootable DVD, and got a message: "Missing operating system."
I looked around, but found no results that really matched and I would like to point out that I am fairly new to linux, so this may be a very obvious answer to some of you.I am running fc12.i686, installed from a disk in the back of a book for a class. No one else in my class is having this issue.When I select System > Administration > Network I am given this error: Failed to execute child process "/usr/bin/system-config-network" (No such file or directory). I am not so new to not realize that this file is not there, which I confirmed with an "ls -a". My question is, is there any way that I can download and install that bin? Or perhaps replace/repair it with the disc? It was supposed to be in the original install and my have been, the only thing that I have done in the /usr/bin/ directory is I tried to install Java (6.22 I think it was), which told me it installed correctly but didn't work when I tried Minecraft.
Offlate I installed F11 i586 on my laptop. F11 shares the hard disk with Vista Home Premium 32-bit. The problem is that when running F11 (or even Ubuntu), my system shut off suddenly(not a normal OS shut down, but a sudden power off without any warning). This could have been a hardware trouble(heating) but it doesn't happen with Vista. Machine specifications: Maker: Toshiba Model: Satellite L305D-S5881 AMD Turion X2 Dual Core Mobile Processor RM-70 3072 MB 800 MHz SDRAM I don't want to open up my machine unnecessarily, if it isn't a hardware issue. I am not sure how to verify the bit length of the machine and the OS and does it create a compatibility issue ? Your advise would be highly appreciated.
Whenever I try to install or remove a program, I get the following error
Code: dpkg: warning: files list file for package `libavahi-common-data' missing, assuming package has no files currently installed.

I installed Fedora Core 13 x86-64 from the installation DVD and picked the "Software Development" installation. I notice that the Applications->System Tools menu doesn't have "File Browser" on it.
Nautilus is installed, so I can create a launcher for it. I'm merely curious whether this is a change or bug in FC 13? Or should I suspect that I myself deleted the file browser launcher accidentally? The machine is a laptop and I find the mousepad awkward to use.
I am following [URL] to install ubuntu on my beagleboard via Ubuntu 10.10 on liveCD. When I enter this command in terminal.
"sudo ./setup_sdcard.sh --mmc /dev/sdX --uboot beagle" It gives me a error sayings Dependencies are missing. "Missing pv.Your System is Missing some dependencies Ubuntu/Debian: sudo apt-get install uboot-mkimage wget pv dosfstools btrfs-tools parted" And when I enter the that above in terminal I get the following error. Unable to locate PV.
I have installed Fedora 10 on a Dell M6400. It has 2 disks in a mirror raid. It came with Windows Vista, but I am not doing a dual boot setup. I have formattet the disk with this installation.I downloaded http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora/linux/relea...0-i386-DVD.iso, burned the DVD and did the install check. It passed the check.The installation went fine, but after the first reboot I am getting "Missing operating system".
I have no idea where to begin... Could the installation media be faulty after all? I there anyway to get passed this, without reinstalling? I know this may have something to do with the boot loader, but I don't know anything about it.I have installed Fedora 4,5,6,8,9 and this never happened to me before, but then again, I did all these installations on my old Dell Latitude.... Could this have something to do with the new hardware?
When I try to update my system, I get the message: Error: Missing Dependency: xine-lib(plugin-abi)(x86-32) = 1.25 is needed by package xine-lib-extras-freeworld-220.127.116.11-3.fc10.i386 (installed) after a list of packages which are set to be updated.

I`m trying to compile sources of kernel module which has been written for kernel 2.6.9. There were many changes in kernel headers since then in current kernel sources. I`ve found that old /asm/system.h was moved under architecture dedicated directory /arch/*/include/asm/system.h. Anyway during sources compilation I`m having errors related to kernel sources. It looks like there is something wrong with this /asm/system.h

I've configured/make/make installed fftw and its doing just fine in the usr/lib folder, so I'm at a loss at how to fix this. Do I need to build fftw again using some kind of shared make switch? I couldn't find any referance about that.
