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
I have downloaded lzo-2.00 package and have installed it linux kernel 2.6 version. Now I want to include the lzo library in the source code of linux.According to the instructions given in the package, I have copied the files (minilzo.c,minilzo.h,lzoconf.h,lzodefs.h)in the source directory(/mm),added minilzo.o to my Makefile and have included(#include minilzo.h) from my program. But when I compile the kernel,I am getting errors.
->limits.h:No such file or directory ->assert.h:No such file or directory
I was trying to install VPN client for my Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit. During the installation process the terminal reads:
"Directory containing linux kernel source code [/lib/modules/2.6.31-21-generic/build]"
On that I pressed enter for the default option (in bold). After a few more steps I reached the following error:
Making module sh: Can't open ./driver_build.sh Failed to make module "cisco_ipsec.ko".
[/lib/modules/2.6.31-21-generic/build] is the location where the installer expects the kernel source to be (I am guessing). So unless I correct the terminal (by providing the location of the kernel source), I think I will keep on getting the same error message.
So to get the kernel source I visited: [URL]From there I copy pasted the command:
I need a mixer app called envy24control. Nobody seems to have a Slackware package for it, which would not be a big deal except that I cannot find the source code either! Does anyone know where I can find this thing?
I have a question about choice of library to be used on low-end systems. I've so far been using SDL to create a user interface for a media system, and it's been working fantastically on my development machine, a dual core 2GHz machine with 2Gb RAM and an Intel graphics card. I get a frame rate of up to 100fps, and there is no slowdown at all. However when I run the exact same program on an embedded motherboard, the VIA EPIA EN15000G, which has a 1.5GHz processor, and a VIA P4M800 graphics chip (possibly the worst graphics chip ever invented as far as Linux support goes), I get a frame rate of less than 5fps. This makes the entire program totally unusable, and I've been left in a bit of a pickle. I've looked into alternatives like SFML, but that looks like it won't help at all on an unaccelerated system. I've also tried using OpenChrome drivers on it, and that made a negligible or nonexistent difference.
Can anybody suggest anything I could look into re: optimising my code or changing libraries goes? I already use SDL_DisplayFormatAlpha to convert my surfaces to the correct format. I haven't looked into Dirty Rectangles yet massively, as there's not much movement at all on the GUI, just the changing of button states.
Would use of OpenGL help at all if using the OpenChrome driver, which apparently has 2D acceleration? I'm more than willing to totally overhaul the code if needs be.
is there a way to debug my library files from DDD? Basically a way to pass the paths to DDD so I can view the source etc. I'm having a segmentation nightmare, which only crops up about every 10 or so starts, I know it's in one file in a library. I could move the source file into my general code to debug, but am sure there's a way in DDD.
I want to build my own GNOME. The problem I have is that I cannot find the tarball for the GNOME source code. Another thing I've read on their website is that the way to build it is not the conventional './configure, make, make install', and that it has to be done using a multi-phase process. Is this correct?
Is there a way to find the dependencies from the source code in the directory produced by the tarball? All I do till now is ./configure, see the missing lib etc, install it, again ./configure, see missing lib, install it, and so on. Is there a way to have all the missing dependencies before configuring the program for the system, maybe with a proper configure flag? But ./configure -h
I am trying to install an rpm and when I run rpm -ivvh "package" I get this output Quote: Expected size: 29111 = lead(96)+sigs(180)+pad(4)+data(28831) D: Actual size: 29111 D: ldipmi-8.50.0.i386.rpm: Header SHA1 digest: OK (d3665fbf1c1a418ac1bf17befe92870b95c1a446) D: added binary package  D: ============== /root /root: not an rpm package (or package manifest): Is a directory D: found 0 source and 1 binary packages
this is srinath,newbie to linux and shell scripts.am in need of shell script,which have to checkout the source code(C/C++) from CVS server to a specified directory and compile that source code and get all its dependency files to a specified directory.
I've tried to use google to find this, and all I find is M$ SAL and some annotation standard for java, neither of which is anything like what I'm looking for.
I am pouring over someone else's source code, and want to be able to take notes on it, saving those notes in a separate text file that I can grep, open in a text editor, etc. I want each annotation line to include a line number (or range of lines) so it's easy to know what part of the code it refers to.
I could do this by hand, but it would be nice if a program existed to read and write such a file format. It could be similar to Kompare, only with editable notes on one side and source on the other, linked together with colored bands.
Does such a thing exist?

I found on the Internet a rough suggestion to debug code which says to add a line:
An example shows this lists the lines of source that do work.
I do not know where these lines are supposed to go and whether the "notdeadyet" should be a call to a subroutine or what. I only found that "%define" is used to link to external files, so I am confused because what I tried did not work.
(I am unable to use (and learn) any debugging tool for another few weeks and I'd like to progress on this If I can.)
For one of my class projects, we have to analyze a usb keyboard driver source code and be able to understand it and present it to the class. Me and a few other people are working together by breaking up the code into sections so each person can analyze a section of code.Now I've ran into a section of this code that I am a little confused about. It seems fairly simple but I just wanted to double check since I wasn't able to find a solid answer.
