Build Fails - Arguments?
I've tried building lifelines-3.0.62.tar.bz2 with src2pkg version-1.9.4 with this command:
I can configure and make LifeLines with no problems or error messages manually and I really can't seem to figure out what I need to do to get this working properly.
First, update to the latest src2pkg-1.9.5 from here:
Then, if you are still having problems with the lifelines build, try using the -DESTDIR option:
src2pkg -p=/usr/local -C -DESTDIR lifelines-3.0.62.tar.bz2
I would recommend you to place each tarball in its' own directory -this will help ensure good builds and is a good pratice anyway. I also recommend avoiding using /usr/local as your prefix for packaged software. Some of the src2pkg functions which
help make sure your packages are complete and correct are disabled when you use -p=/usr/local
P.S. - I just downloaded the sources and it compiled just fine using the default -JAIL installation method. There were some problems with 'make install' in the last couple of versions of src2pkg -seem to be all worked out now.
This should work fine:
src2pkg -C lifelines-3.0.62.tar.bz2
Ah! The new version works, thank you.
I built LifeLines with
My standards are that non-distribution software be installed in /usr/local; "packaged" software; e.g., OpenOffice, Scribus and the like I install in /opt. Been doing things that way for... cripes! decades, already. Lordy, time do fly when you're having fun, eh? I've tried to follow what I think of as the Bell Labs, System V, Solaris model by doing that and, so far, it's been less a pain than installing add-ons in /usr (at least for me). For a long time the checkinstall utility did a nice job, but, well, that's the end of that apparently; scr2pkg seems the next step in the evolutionary trail (and, now that it works, a step in the right direction, methinks).
Thank you for both the development effort and for the help.
