I am looking for some help on compiling some drivers. Actually this happens alot.
Currently I am compiling libnjb to work with my Creative Jukebox. Configure errors out stating:
checking for usb.h... no
configure: error: I can't find the libusb header file on your system. You may
need to set the CPPFLAGS environment variable to include the
search path where you have libusb installed before running
configure (e.g. setenv CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include)
I looked for the usb.h file and found it under /usr/include/linux so I am assuming that the configure script is lookin in the wrong place?
The gnomad2 also couldn't find gtk 2.0 even though I am running the gnome desktop.
I am using Mandrake 9.2. This seems to be a reoccuring problem with any distribution. Shouldn't these things be in standard locations? I was compiling something for Fedora and it figured it couldn't find X11 even thought I was in it!!
Is there some kind of parameter I should specify? I am also doing this as root so it shouldn't be permissions.
so if you do as is suggested, setenv CPPFLAGS=-l/usr/include/linux
it should work.
Different distros sometimes place necessary libraries and other environment files in different locations. If you've found that you have the necessary files installed, then adding the path to these files to your environment should fix the problem.
