alsa-utils-1.0.8 fails during Make


Hey guys. Almost finished compiling some Alsa stuff. I encountered an error when attempting to make alsa-utils.

[root@localhost alsa-utils-1.0.8]# make
Making all in include

then mv -f ".deps/alsactl.Tpo" ".deps/alsactl.Po"; \

fi

make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/alsa-utils-1.0.8/alsaconf'

What is t-ja.gmo and what should I do from here? I'm compiling this on Mandrakelinux 10.1, powered by kernel 2.6.8.1-12mdk.

Little help?

It comes with Alsa 1.0.6, but I have no support for my Audigy 2 Value card. I've been instructed that a newer version of Alsa should have support, so I'm attempting to build that.

Does mandrake have stable testing unstable repositories like gentoo or debian?

Yeah, I think I know what you're talking about.

The Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Value (SB0400) isn't listed on that at all. In fact, rarely is the Audigy 2 Value ever mentioned. (I didn't choose the card with Linux in mind, as it was purchased and installed before I ever migrated.)

aaaantoine, read the INSTALL file in the alsa-utils source directory. You don't need to run "make", just "configure" and "make install".

Nah, you don't need gettext, I don't have it either. Try "make clean", and then "make install" again.

Tried both suggestions.

Tried "make clean" followed by "make install". Same error.

I then installed gettext. "urpmi gettext" and then "make clean" and "make install". Still didn't work.

So do any other Mandrake users have this much trouble updating software or do I just have incredibly bad luck?

That's odd, don't know why it's not working. I was having the same problem, but then I read the INSTALL file and skipped the compilation step and then it worked great...

EDIT: I don't know if this'll make a difference, but try "make clean", and then run the configure script again and retry "make install".

Actually, I think you do need to install gettext. I'm running mdk10.1 and I had the same problem untill I installed gettext, gettext-devel, and a few more gettext related rpms. I don't remember exactly which anymore but I'm sure you can figure it out.

Ok, I looked it up. I installed: gettext, gettext-devel, glib-gettextize, and libgettextmisc.

when I installed these running "./configure && make install" worked on mdk10.1

Smile Ubuntu solved problem

On Ubuntu Feisty Fawn, I've installed "gettext" and "ja-trans" packages, then this problem has solved !

I can confirm this. Tried installing, didn't work. Installed both these packages from the Synaptic, then ran the Make Clean, ./configure, and make install. Et voilà!

Thanks for posting this, allismac.
