I was recently trying to install Ruby from source, due to needing and older version and having yum acting up on me. The problem is, the executable is being installed to /usr/local/bin instead of /usr/bin. I figure there's probably a way to change the install directory at some point during the configure/make/make install process, but there's no man page for these functions, and Google has not been kind.
Thus, my questions are twofold:
1) Does anyone have any good documentation (ideally, with examples/explanations) of command line parameters available for configure and make?
2) Failing that, can anyone tell me in specific how to install a source code's compiled executable to a specific directory?
Searching for an ancient file... "ubuntu-8.04-src-1.iso" Note that I have already checked the primary ubuntu mirrors that host DVDs. they all have: "ubuntu-9.04-src-1.iso"/"ubuntu-10.04-src-1.iso"/"ubuntu-11.04-src-1.iso"; but not "ubuntu-8.04-src-1.iso"... I am trying to organize an internal "complete" archive for computer science and engineering at the Univ of Mich.
I'm new to linux and I'm using ubuntu 10.10 since it relished. I've download utorrent-server-3.0-25053.tar.gz. I configured intltool-0.41.1.tar.gz and libgraph-1.0.1.tar.gz using that very command installed them successfully.
i am already a little bit familiar with linux and now i want to know better the linux OS. i have downloaded the source code of the krnel from the kernel.org and i dont understand the linux source trees organization, so can somebody do me a favor and give me a link to some internet page (or at least a book) that explains that?? i have searched in the internet with the tag:::linux source trees organization and i have not found nothing interesting
I followed the steps from [url] to download and install the kernel source code.
"Following Generic Textbooks
Many of the tutorials, examples, and textbooks about Linux kernel development assume the kernel sources are installed under the /usr/src/linux/ directory. If you make a symbolic link, as shown below, you should be able to use those learning materials with the Fedora packages. Install the appropriate kernel sources, as shown earlier, and then run the following command:
Where is my kernel source located which i can modify. I cant find anything in usr/src/kernels? Why?
Where do I find the linux-source package and the linux-headers package? Are they on the CD that I can copy to /usr/src (is that the right place...)? Or do I need to download them from the old-releases.ubuntu.com site?
The issue now is that the nVidia installer from their website wants the source code to build the right packages for this machine, however, I do not have the src directory with the source code that it is looking for. Is there some way to give this too it now?
I've tried a couple times to install from a tar.gz file and when i try to compile the source code in the terminal I get this error "tar: bash-4.2.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory" what am I doing wrong? Now when I download the files, I leave themin the down loads folder, do i need to make a new directory? If so how do I do that and how do i call it up when I compile the sopurce?
So I have the burned ubuntu CD, and I'm attempting to install it on a system that has one HDD with XP/Vista on it, and another that is completely formatted and unpartitioned. However, when I boot to the ubuntu CD, I can use the menus from the bottom, and select the language when initially prompted, but I can't select any of the menu options except for boot from first hard drive.
I have been using Linux for 2 months, specifically Ubuntu, and been wondering where the source code is. Not only do I wonder where the kernel source code is but also where the source code for the installed programs are.
So, there are these source packages i downloaded, which i want to build with slightly different configure options due to a bug in debian: hfd5-serial and hdf5-openmpi cannot coexist, yet some packages require the serial version of the lib , others require the openmpi.
I downloaded the sources, in order to build them, without the hdf5 thing...
I have already built this from source in Scientific Linux, and i know this can be done without hdf5.
Where do i hack into the debian source tree of a package to remove a configure option...?
Where I can get a disc for the Fedora 11 source code? I really like this release of fedora and want to keep it for the future. Also, what's the difference between SRPM and RPMs? What does an SRPM do when you install it and what is it's purpose?
I have some C source code listings that are not documented or even commented from which I would like to run a program to create a flowchart.I'm not looking for the likes of dia or such which require the user to do the creation please. I've read the posts on this and other forums but have found only user created charts, not from source. From several web searches I know winblows has such programs but I don't want windows on this machine!
In what directory do I need to install a tarball containing API libraries in order to import the libraries for programming?I've been trying for a few hours now to get started on my homework - but I need the GLUT api for OpenGL. After attempting to compile a simple test program, I got the error Code: glut.h: No such file or directory
First off, I'm not even really sure if OpenGL wasn't included in the original install or if I even need it when programming with GLUT (I truelly am clueless, lol). But after reading as much as I could, I've only been able to deduce that I need to install the API libraries somewhere on my disc.So I found the tarball, and there are special instructions for installing a linux machine. I found instructions saying to install it in the directory /usr/lib/ but is that right for the SUSE distro?Also, if anybody knows anything about GLUT/OpenGL programming + openSUSE11.2.
