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
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.
I wanted to fix something in the Kate editor. So instead of downloading it from it's website (Get It! - Kate | Get an Edge in Editing) I wanted to download the "openSUSE Kate" source package. But as you can see, there is no source package available. I tested it with source installation of "zypper" (zypper si zypper) and it worked.Any ideas? Is the kate source code in another package?
I am trying to install the tightVNC on my imac.It expects X install; I see that X11 in my utility. I think it is ok, but the instruction states to install it on /usr/bin/. Which is correct?Then I need to have ~JPEG and ~zlib to place in /usr/bin/ or inside of certain folders to use.To make sure it is ok; I put both of them in both of the indicated places. I assume it is going to work.Now, I am suppose to build and install. I am not sure how to do it with the command "xmkmf" and not sure where to run this command.I am doing all of this in terminal.
I am wonder if somebody could take the time to teach me to install or compile a program from source.I have downloaded ZSNES from sourceforge but cannot figure out how to install it from the command prompt or using the package manager.
I recently want to study the source code of linphone, and I should install it on my debian lenny linux first. I can install it by apt-get install linphone without any trouble. but like i said above, and I should install in by source code.well, the configure did not goes wrong, but after I typed "make", errors come to me, I know this is the error about the lib's. but i do not know which one did I miss,any one could tell me what the libs are they when I use the source code compile ????
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.
Ubuntu 9.10 is the running system. I need to install a library (LibRaw-0.8.5) from source code as the version I need is not present in the repositories. So far, I managed to extract the .tar.gz, but now I have no clue how to install it and make it work with DigiKam... I tried the sudo make install stuff, but it seems I don't do it right or what
Has somebody used DAFS (Direct Access File System)?I've found a lot of literature about this file system,where the comprassion tests promise a ~20-50% faster packet transmission,than in the strandard NFS.But I can't install DAFS,because the source code is for old kernels 2.4.Does anyone know,why did the research of this file system stopped in 2003 year,and there are no newer versions?
I have no preior experience about to installation procedure in linux.currently i am using red hat linux which normally support rpm.I have to download a software from net which have extention like blablabla.tar.gz or blablabla.bz2.Normally most softwares can be complied in installed in three simple steps
./configure Make command Make install
I have not use these commands i just have a bit knowledge about it which i have mentioned here. how to extract sourse code fine and then compile and at last installed in the pc.
I think I put my question on a wrong sub-forum. My problem is I can't get apache to produce right output to XMLHttpRequest responseText but instead it displays php source code. On another server the same code works as it should.
When I open the php script on a browser window it works as it should.
this is the thread in programming sub-forum Apache sends php source code to Ajax - openSUSE Forums
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 had Ubuntu for awhile, now I installed Fedora12, I'm trying to follow directions to install a program from source code (tar.gz file) I have the February 2010 issue of Linux Format, and am trying to follow it step by step. I copied gnurobbo off their disk to my desk top, which copied it. Then I did the cd command, then I did the ls command and it didn't show me anything but a line saying desktop and a few other things like pictures movies etc. so I did cd gnurobbo-0.64 and it says no such file. I have been trying this for a few times and I think I'm going crazy.
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
how to install Dropbox for Debian Squeeze from source.Please read everything before you begin. I prepared it as I installed Dropbox for my own system. Please Note: I use sudo, you may have to use root or 'su' from the command line. If you don't know the difference between sudo and su, then you shouldn't try this until you know. At the time I did this, the lastest dropbox version was 0.6.7.
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.
I am not able to install 11.3 x86_64 on an OCZ 120 GB Agility 2 SSD. I receive a system error -3030 when it tries to format the drive. If I use go into rescue mode and either format or partition the drive, the installer crashes.
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!
