Question Compiling from SVN error


Hey guys...

Trying to compile Jack and Freebob on Hardy using SVN...

After svn co svn://svn.linux1394.org/libraw1394/trunk libraw1394-svn
and $ cd libraw1394-svn
then $ autoreconf -f -i -s

gave the errors...

/usr/share/aclocal/nspr.m4:8: warning: underquoted definition of AM_PATH_NSPR
/usr/share/aclocal/nspr.m4:8: run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
/usr/share/aclocal/nspr.m4:8: or see automake
/usr/share/aclocal/nspr.m4:8: warning: underquoted definition of AM_PATH_NSPR
/usr/share/aclocal/nspr.m4:8: run info '(automake)Extending aclocal'
/usr/share/aclocal/nspr.m4:8: or see automake

Any ideas what is going wrong and how I might fix? Or even where I can look for more info...

Thanks

Have you installed automake yet? By default it is not installed on Ubuntu but I could be wrong. I have not test Ubuntu in quite sometime.

Thanks for the quick reply... yes I just ran "apt-get install automake" and it returned "automake is already the newest version" so I must have done at one point in the setup...

I followed the link... it led me to of which the relevant section seems to be...

"...Starting with Automake 1.8, aclocal will warn about all underquoted calls to AC_DEFUN. We realize this will annoy a lot of people, because aclocal was not so strict in the past and many third party macros are underquoted; and we have to apologize for this temporary inconvenience. The reason we have to be stricter is that a future implementation of aclocal (see Future of aclocal) will have to temporarily include all these third party .m4 files, maybe several times, including even files that are not actually needed. Doing so should alleviate many problems of the current implementation, however it requires a stricter style from the macro authors. Hopefully it is easy to revise the existing macros. For instance,

# bad style
AC_PREREQ(2.57)
AC_DEFUN(AX_FOOBAR,
[AC_REQUIRE([AX_SOMETHING])dnl
AX_FOO
AX_BAR
])

should be rewritten as

AC_DEFUN([AX_FOOBAR],
[AC_PREREQ([2.57])dnl
AC_REQUIRE([AX_SOMETHING])dnl
AX_FOO
AX_BAR
])

Wrapping the AC_PREREQ call inside the macro ensures that Autoconf 2.57 will not be required if AX_FOOBAR is not actually used. Most importantly, quoting the first argument of AC_DEFUN allows the macro to be redefined or included twice (otherwise this first argument would be expanded during the second definition). For consistency we like to quote even arguments such as 2.57 that do not require it.

If you have been directed here by the aclocal diagnostic but are not the maintainer of the implicated macro, you will want to contact the maintainer of that macro. Please make sure you have the last version of the macro and that the problem already hasn't been reported before doing so: people tend to work faster when they aren't flooded by mails..."

The only part that I understand is the part I have bolded and italicized... cause that certainly resonates with me... lol

Is there anything I can do with this... or more precisely WHAT should I do with this...

Thanks again...

nvm... closed post... ignored the Warnings and everything worked fine anyway...

Interesting... coming from Windoze ignoring warnings is like laughing at an uzi wielder with a trigger finger... obviously not as important on Linux...

I think a mod has to lock the post. Might try asking one of them but It is best to keep a post open as other people may post here in the future.

Glad that it worked out for you.

trouble compiling jack from SVN

Hello,

I thought I'd add to this post rather than starting another one. I am trying to compile jack from subversion. i have all the necessary build tools installed. I chmod'ed the /tmp directory 1777, and then ran the autogen.sh.

It looked promising (see below), but i there weren't any of the build messages related to jack, like alsa etc. Nevertheless it created a make file. However, when I run make, I get a "no makefile or target" error.

Any ideas?


leigh@tiny:~/jack$ sudo ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr --with-default-tmpdir=/dev/shm

Compiling from SVN error

Hello All,

I just thought I would follow up my post with the response. I didn't have the dev-versions of the necessary libraries installed.

sudo aptitude install libsamplerate0-dev libasound2-dev libsndfile1-dev libncurses5-dev libreadline5-dev
and if you want the FireWire support:
sudo aptitude install libfreebob0-dev

That allowed me to compile.

Best, Leigh
