Question make: *** [check] Error 1


Hi, i am using Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 and trying to compile a program but having problems. I managed to ./configure it successfully but when i run the 'make' command or 'make check' i get the following error message.

: no rule to create target: check()
make: *** [check] Error 1

I have researched quite a bit into this and i have had no luck in finding a viable solution to this problem. Any helpful advice will be appreciated...

I have already looked at that post and installed glib but like the guy in the post it didn't help me as i still get the error. The program i am trying to install is kdenlive and i know there is a .deb package for it and i have intalled it via that method but i am trying to learn linux and install stuff via the source code with the compile method. I have come across this problem before but always shied away from it but no more i want to learn how to fix this so any helpful advice will be appreciated.

Thanks,

How do you know that? Did you see something like: "Good - your configure finished. Start make now"? Looks like configure errored out and Makefile was not created.

Yes because it said the following,

Good - your configure finished. Start make now

What version of kdenlive you are trying to install. I downloaded the latest and it requires unsermake instead of make.
http://wiki.kde.org/unsermake
I'd say you have chosen a tough cookie for your first compile.

Ah yes it does as listed below.

WARNING: use unsermake instead of make or use a wrapper script, e.g. makeobj!!!
unsermake check
: no rule to create target: check()
make: *** [check] Error 1


But i installed unsermake and ran the command and it still gave me the 'Error 1' status. Its the latest version of kdenlive "kdenlive-0.5-1", i have run the command both as a normal user and root and still no difference. The good news is that this seems tough to compile which means i can potentially learn a lot from this...

When i run the unsermake i get the following error.

Error creating ./kdenlive/kdenlive.o. Exit status 1.


Any ideas?

A few lines before this (up to ten) describe what's wrong.

We don't know because you still haven't shown us those preceding ten lines.

Hmh, does not make sense. If you still want to fiddle with this then you need to increase verbosity.

It appears to be a bug in the source
