Ubuntu :: Missing Library Files While Compiling

Aug 18, 2010

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.

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... :-)

Ubuntu :: Install The Avant Window Navigator By Compiling The Source Files?

May 17, 2010

I'm trying to install the Avant Window Navigator by compiling the source files and installing that way. I've extracted the file avant-window-navigator-0.4.0.tar.gz, but when I run the ./configure command, I get an error.


configure: error: in `/usr/src/avant-window-navigator-0.4.0':
configure: error:
Could not link test program to Python. Maybe the main Python library has been
installed in some non-standard library path. If so, pass it to configure

General :: Gcc Compiler Is Not Compiling Old C Programming Files Because Of Timestamp?

Nov 20, 2010

I am using makefile to complile all C Programming files. But certain files are not getting compiled and hence its object file is not getting generated.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Steam Games To Run Right

Jan 4, 2010

I just made the switch from windows xp and i am very glad i did. One problem though, I cant get steam games to run right. I have steam installed on an external hard drive and can start it up with wine but whenever i try to run a game, the "starting (game name here)" screen comes up and then disappears and the game doesn't open. I've tried several different tutorials on how to run steam but all they do is tell how to install it.I'm running ubuntu 9.10 x64 if that helps at all.

Ubuntu :: .iso Games Not Working?

May 1, 2011

A friend of mine gave me a few .iso games that will work just from the computer...not using a cd drive. I figured out how to do it in windows, it was pretty easy, but in ubuntu its not as easy. I got some tips on how to mount...and after some experimenting i got it to work. So i installed Morrowind thru Wine. And it starts the opening screen just fine (where you can pick "Play" "Options" etc.) But when i click play it gives me an error that it cant find a cd drive on my computer...because i use a netbook. why this is happening since i have it mounted. Also i am trying to use PlayOnLinux, since ive heard it is good at auto fixing problems that youd have to manually fix thru Wine, and id like to be able to run Morrowind thru that if possible.

Ubuntu :: Games Started But Getting No Sound At All

Feb 24, 2010

I switched to Linux but I was, and still am a gamer, and I have been trying to get some of my favorites to run on Linux as well as find Linux native games. While this hasn't been hard, I have run into a sort of Brick wall. I'll get games to start, but there will be no sound at all. The game runs fine though. When I try to close the game, it crashes/freezes.

This has puzzled me because some games that display this bug now did not previously, and at first this only occurred on one game. Now it occurs on all games. I've checked around, found a few similar bugs, but the closest people seem to get to fixing it is "just uninstall pulseaudio and use something else". It only happens in games, music and other sound works fine.

As for specs, I must say I'm fairly ignorant of some things, but getting better, here is what I do know.
Mint 8
Nvidia graphics card (can't recall what model)
Gnome Desktop

I'm running linux on an old iMac G3 power pc. I've just loaded a couple of games for my daughter but the music is staticky and the cursor flickers and goes invisible. Is there anyway to increase virtual memory or something that will make these game work??
I know the hardware is old but one of the few(only thing) things it did well with the old OSX system was play games, so I know its not the hardware.

Ubuntu :: Sound Not Working With Games?

Mar 6, 2010

I already posted a topic about this but i got wrongly interpreted as someone gave me a link to a topic to restore your audio fully, which isn't necessairy, as I AM able to play music through rythmbox, on dvd's, on ........ but not on games.

I have a conexant Hi-Def audio on a HP laptop here, and when i typed in the code 'aplay -l' in the terminal, i got this:

[CODE]jakob@jakob-laptop:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: CONEXANT Analog [CONEXANT Analog]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


As you can see my conexantaudio driver is listed, but it does not seem to work with games.. I have 9.10 and in 9.04 it did work..
