Question Make-Error: Vorbis Tools 1.0.1 - Library not found


hi there!

first of all:
sorry for this 'Help - I can't compile x!' thread


well, I am trying to install the vorbis tools 1.0.1.
I didn't have any problems with ./configure, but when I try to make it, make says:

Code:
libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/libogg.la'
I do have libogg installed, libogg.la is in a different location to where make expects it to be. -> it's in /usr/local/lib/

how can I tell make the right path?


thx!

Either edit config to reflect the actual location or make a symbolic link in /usr/lib that points to the actual location.

Try a
./configure --help

;)

I'm pretty certain it will tell you how to
specify the paths.


Cheers,

ok,

- I read ./configure --help, specified the right path and tried to make it -> same error.
which isn't quite surprising, because ./configure ran through without complaining before.

- next I created a symbolic link in /usr/lib/ -> seems like make could find the file now, but there's a new error:
Code:
[...]/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.2.3/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lssl
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
- I had a look at the Makefile, but
OGG_LIBS = -L/usr/local/lib//lib -logg
seems to be OK to me - which doesn't mean a lot

Do you realise this thread is six years old?.
I doubt froedi is still looking for an answer.
