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'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?
We all know we can install a linux system such as Fedora 10 and use it. Being linux, one should in principle get the source codes for everything that has been precompiled (except the proprietary drivers such as nvidia) in the installation DVDs/CDs. Where are the source codes ? Is there a place I can download them ? To avoid confusion, I am not referring to the kernel source that can be compiled to give a linux kernel, but that does not include the drivers, such as intel_drv.so.
To be more specific, the intel graphic i810 driver has been built into any linux system, but where is the exact source? One answer may be that primary source intellinuxgraphics.com. However, if anyone tries to download the every changing (i.e., keep updated almost every single day) driver source codes from freedesktop.org, it is almost certain that the source codes will not be the same as the one that is finalized in Fedora 10.
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 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 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 want to know if it is possible to edit the source code of the programs in Linux. Like, take the calculator for instance. If I want to add a user-defined function to it, how can I do it - if I can do it at all? In general, where and how can I look at the source code of such programs ?
I have been the webmaster of a webpage for a few years and I have always installed Apache and PHP using the source code. The reason is that I wanted to use a recent version of them and I couldn't find it in the repositories.
Now, we are going to purchase a new server with Ubuntu (we were using Fedora in the previous one) and I don't know if install those packages using synaptic (much easier) or install them from scratch using the source code.
Synaptic is great, specially installing modules for PHP, but I am afraid of not having updated versions in a few months.
I was wondering if there are any tools that automate the process of installing from source for example tar.gz or tar.bz2. I have used kludge installer but I am looking for something that doesn't make me install any dependencies for example I want a bash shell script it just runs the commands you normally do but faster.
I am having a problem installing a program, AudioTester v1.6 and tests FLACs for errors. [URL]. The .zip file has a windows executable '.exe' and the source code. The code was written for Windows. The source code is written in C++ (.cpp) with C header (.h) files, xml (.vcproj) and one '.exe.manifest'(?) file. I tried the usual commands for compiling (./configure, autogen, make) the source code but no luck. Can I compile this code for Ubuntu/linux? Is there anything I can do with the code? And If so what do I need to do.
I just pulled the MS Removal Tool executable off a Windows 7 machine. Is there a way I can view the code on my Ubuntu machine? I am curious how they block the "real" av software from running. I did get rid of it, pretty simple.
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.
