Compiling From Source seems impossible! [SOLVED]
« on: May 26, 2008, 12:38:05 pm »

Hey there!

I want to start packaging applications for the VL community, but I cant seem to compile applications on my own box! I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong! I've chatted in the IRC and nobody has a clue as to what could be the source of the problem.

I download the source of a fairly simple app, very few dependencias which are already met by default. [Geany in this case]. During the ./configure, I was getting an error that the compiler could not make excecutables or something. I removed all the "-mtune....." parameters, rebooted, and now I can at least get through the ./configure... However, when I try "make", I get this error:
Quote

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/oblivion02/Desktop/geany-0.14'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Anyone have any ideas? I dont think its permissions, because I am running it as root. Any ideas?

Are gcc and gcc-g++ actually installed? You can check in gslapt or with
Code: [Select]
ls /var/log/packages/gcc* Seems like you're missing at least gcc-g++. Perhaps you didn't install the "Dev" bulk-package during install? That would explain why it isn't there.

/var/log/packages/gcc-g++-4.1.2-i486-1
/var/log/packages/gccmakedep-1.0.2-noarch-1

They are installed. I even re-installed them using gslapt, trying to look for a solution.

I've also compiled/make geany fine on 5.9 standard gold - nothing special was done.  Perhaps those special characters exeterdad mentions are the problem.

I could not find the source of the error. However, reinstalling VL-5.9 STD worked fine. I can now compile it ;).

Thanks anyway for the help. ;)
