Ubuntu Installation :: Install Source Code For Programs To Compile?
Feb 2, 2010
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?
Recently I was trying to use Gentoo, and I was really impressed of how it is faster than Ubuntu in running applications, specially when I build wine and was able to run Oblivion at a reasonable speed. I would like to know if there is a way to compile Ubuntu from source code, to optimize it to my hardware.
I am trying to install a DR rootkit into ubuntu for an assignment, im using vm ware but can only get as far as extracting the rootkit and not being able to compile the source code.. when i use the ./configure command it says there is no such file or directory and when i use the make command it keeps getting errors.
I've created a GUI for my voip software wherein i'm using the source code of linphone 3.3.2 for video and all protcol stuffs . It is like i've got my own gtk GUI instead of the linphone's glade . Hope you get the picture of what i'm doing . I would like to know how to compile the source code since because i do not know about make files and stuffs . Kindly help me solve this .
I've taken the source code for Zlib1.2.3, built and installed in a 64 Bit linux machine. Then when i downloaded Python 2.5.4 source and tried to build(make), i got the following error
gcc -pthread -shared build/temp.linux-x86_64-2.5/opt/cinecert/Python-2.5.4/Modules/zlibmodule.o -L/usr/local/lib -lz -o build/lib.linux-x86_64-2.5/zlib.so /usr/bin/ld: /usr/local/lib/libz.a(adler32.o): relocation R_X86_64_32 against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC /usr/local/lib/libz.a: could not read symbols: Bad value collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
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 trying to build the java gnome gtk+ bindings on open suse and ran into a snag. the libcairo2-dev package is not apart of pensuse - how ever it is apart of ubuntu and the debian launchpad. can i install other distros repos to solve this issue? actually no i cant. how to install this package? zypper install libcairo2-dev comes back as not found.
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 Install my Razer Deathadder on Suse 11.1, I allready found a programm: bu3sch.de The problem is, I cant compile the code. I cd into the folder with the source and use make (as root) and get this error:
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.
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.
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 do have a broadband connection..and i can install using apt-get but problem is i want to distribute it to my friends at hostel where they dont have internet connection and when i try to install it from tar balls almost every packages having dependencies it require this require this and require this so i m not able to provide them the packages offline how do i know which are the dependencies and do i need to download all the related packages first in order to distribute to my friends? i want to know a way through which i download packages from internet and can give and install it on other pcs.
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 am new to Linux, and I just tried to compile a program (powertab tools) from source. I'm having som problems doing that. The "./configure" command works fine, but when I run "make", it gives an error:
Code: seppe@Thuis:~$ cd ptabtools-0.5.0 seppe@Thuis:~/ptabtools-0.5.0$ ./configure checking for gcc... gcc checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out checking whether the C compiler works... yes checking whether we are cross compiling... no
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 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?
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 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
