Debian :: Compile XMMS - Navigated To Folder Containing The Extracted Source And Ran ./configure - Failed
May 29, 2010
I'm trying to do the simplest thing. Compile XMMS. I navigated to the folder containing the extracted source and ran ./configure. That failed, so I remembered to install the build-essential package.
After that, I continued and got this output:
It said I didn't have glib installed, whatever that is. I did "apt-get install glib" and it told me it couldn't find the package called "glib". I thought, "Yeah, that seems a little too broad of a package name".
So then I went to Synaptic and did a search for "libglib" and noticed I already have libglib2.0-0 installed, as well as libglib2.0-data and libglib-perl.
How can I get this to to work correctly? I know the process should be ./configure, make, and then make-all, but I get stuck on the ./configure step.
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.
I have a RAR archive, split into 40 sections, containing a folder with a total of 2GB of data. When I Open the Archive using "File Roller 126.96.36.199" and drag the archived folder to destination folder, it says that its uncompressing, but after its uncompressed, there is nothing there, in the destination folder. Where was the 2GB extracted stuff gone?
I hope I'm in the right section, if I'm not, please forgive me, I just installed Debian 5.0, and I want to install firefox, and then install graphics drivers, etc, I downloaded firefox, but I don't know how to compile programs from source, I googled how to compile firefox but the results are very vague and some are very outdated. I downloaded FF from their site, the file name is firefox-3.5.5.tar.bz2, how do I compile this?
So I am new to linux and i upgraded my kernel to 4.3.3 and to add the bfq patch. When i enter the command make install I get the following Code:
Select allupdate-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.3.3 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8107e-2.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8107e-1.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168h-2.fw for module r8169 W: Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8168h-1.fw for module r8169
I'm trying to compile the D-Link netcard driver from the official source, and when I first ran "make," I got an error that "make" couldn't be found. So I installed "apt-get install make," then make told me that it needed gcc, I installed "apt-get install gcc." Now make says: make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [LINUX] Error 2 and exits.
I suspect that I need to install some package group which will handle the make and make install (rather than manually trying to fix one hole after another)
why it is that when I download the sendmail debian source package for etch and build it using dpkg-buildpackage -b -nc I get a 645543 byte sendmail executable whereas when I download the sendmail binary that is 703292 bytes.
Attempting to compile an application that is not located in any of the repos yet for 11.3 64 bit. I have downloaded the appropriate src and untarred it. However, when I attempt to run the ./configure command here is the error I receive. checking build system type... Invalid configuration `x86_64-unknown-linux-': machine `x86_64-unknown-linux' not recognized configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub x86_64-unknown-linux- failed
I have made sure that I have all kernel-headers packages installed and am unsure as how to proceed. I tried using the command "./configure --build=x86_64" and then receive an error stating that the "SYSTEM IS NOT SUPPORTED" and continued errors stating that gcc is not installed, eve though it is.
I am thinking about alternatives for VirtualBox (which i like, but the Oracle-story is making me think). After this thread: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=56314 I downloaded the vmware-player (manual, not with the download-manager ) and installed it. Oct 15 15:02:15.614: app-3078584000| Failed to compile module vmmon!
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...?
I often like to use packages that have to be compiled from source. However, even after downloading gcc, I can't compile anything, because the configure script gives me a message about being unable to execute C programs. I gather that this is because of a "noexec" option in /proc/self/mounts. Problem is that the file apparently cannot even be edited by root. Perhaps there is an alternate type of fedora distribution I could use?
How do you compile a tar.gz source on slackware?I am asking because I am about to download and install Slackware(x64), and I have some drivers that it may not have (Ubuntu didn't have them) and TrueCrypt source.
Has anyone successfully compiled VLC 1.0.0-rcX (rc1, rc2 or rc3) from source on CentOS 5? I have a binary installation of VLC 0.9 but I would like VLC 1.0 as it has a new codec that I'd like to use. I've tried lots of ideas which I can post - I keep getting build errors due to wrong package versions - but I thought I'd ask to see if anybody has a HOWTO first.
I have a linux source (linux-2.4.1) which is for intel. I am using powerpc compiler and I need to compile this linux source for powerpc. I did cross compilation, but it dint workout well. How to do it.

What next step need to be taken to install the rpm file from the source file.
I want to build a computer inside my car mainly for having ALL my music in the car's hard drive. I want to run ubuntu (or ubuntu netbook edition) on it and be able to navigate quickly without using a mouse. Running programs is no problem but navigating any music players without a mouse is terrible. Are there any music players that have an ipod/xmb interface and are easy to navigate using mainly the arrow keys/enter? I have considered just using a touchscreen but I really want to find a way so all I need is a keyboard with 5 or 6 keys.
I couldn't compile gammu-1.28 on my Fedora 13 when running ./configure.To make sure what i'm doing, i was install cmake from fedora repository directly using "yum install cmake" and completed. And then to make sure again, i was update my gcc using "yum update gcc". But there was still errors during running ./configure. Finally, i decided to update all needed inside my fedora using "yum update" to make sure again.
