Unhappy Why config.h file doesn't exist?


Hi i am Viknesh,
Actually i am new to Linux envt as i was assigned with a project to analyse the performance of ASSP mail filter engine.
I am using Fedora 7 with KDE3.5.
I need to install a lot of perl modules to run the assp.pl code.
I was trying with all sorts of packages like src.rpm, ixxx.rpm, tar.gz, tar.bz2. All these packages doesnt work exactly.

When i tried with rpm packages. I am getting this error.

/*

[root@localhost RPMs]# rpm -ivh cyrus-sasl-2.1.23-9.fc12.src.rpm
warning: cyrus-sasl-2.1.23-9.fc12.src.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 signature: NOKEY, key ID 57bbccba
1:cyrus-sasl warning: user mockbuild does not exist - using root
warning: group mockbuild does not exist - using root
########################################### [100%]
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/cyrus-sasl-2.1.18-no_rpath.patch;4c52ae60: cpio: MD5 sum mismatch

*/

Then i went for tar.gz files downloaded from CPAN.
I was given a set of instructions to install in the site itself, like:
# gzip -d yourmodule.tar.gz
# tar -xof yourmodule.tar
Then i went to the newly created directory yourmodule(say)
There i typed these commands
# perl Makefile.PL
It got succeeded. Then i am supposed to type two more commands :
# make &
# make test

So when i typed make in the Konsole, I get the following error.

/*

make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE/config.h', needed by `Makefile'. Stop.

*/

So i checked for config.h file as given the directory but it was missing.
I don't know why?
Can anyone figure it out and help me with the project?

Hi, welcome to the LQ forums.

Why, BUT WHY on this Earth you are using Fedora7?????

If you need older system, then use CentOS 5.5, and if you need stable system, use CentOS 5.5

Seriously, you are not going to be able to compile new packages *with newer dependancies) with THAT old system!!!

The Fedora 7 "old archive" is here
http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...ux/releases/7/
( Most packages in 'Everything' )

The link to be used in /etc/yum.repos.d/ fedora.repo :
baseurl=http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/7/Everything/i386/os/

And the old updates from 2007 - 2008 :
http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...nux/updates/7/

" updates repo " :
baseurl=http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/updates/7/i386/

Then you can do # yum install perl-devel
.. to fix your incomplete perl ( currently you only have the run time files.)


The 'cyrus-sasl', you show is not an rpm package. SRC.RPM = source code.
Most tar.gz, tar.bz2 are source code too : Must be compiled before install.

Good luck ! .. ..

Problem with unpacking/install or src.rpm's from newer Fedora versions is due to new kompression tool. You have to manualy unpack it before you can recompile it.

I suggest you use CentOS src.rpm's to compile what you need, IF you can not find those rpm's in Fedora 7 repositories.
