need help compiling gphoto2


Hi,

I'm trying to upgrade to a newer version of gphoto2
to solve a bug. (capture-image times out but all other features work)
I compiled libgphoto2 but when I tried to compile
gphoto it says I need libexif.
the current libexif at SourceForge seems to be corrupt.
It won't uncompress. I've tried both the gz and the zip.
Both complain "unexpected end of file".

Is there another place to get libexif or is there a way
to compile with out it?
The gphoto2 user manual says it's optional but I don't
know the right switch to use when compiling to skip it.

Thanks,
-Steve

hi there,
line 1097 configure file...
Code:
  --with-libexif=PREFIX
                 where to find libexif, "no" or "auto"
i think that if you call
Code:
./configure --with-libexif=no
will work.
regards,
slackie1000

Thanks slackie,
After my original post I managed to find the help
for ./configure. (./configure -h) whodathunkit?
But for some reason ./configure --with-libexif=no
didn't work. It still kept asking for libexif.
I managed to find a version of libexif and was able
to install it.
I no longer get hangs and timeouts when capturing images
but now it hangs when I download the image from the camera.
Sheesh! Upgrading just moved the problem from the capture
command to the download command.
All I need is a way to capture, download, and erase
an image from my camera that is scriptable.
I prefer to script in Perl.
Any ideas?
I guess I can give gphoto2 one last try when I get
my other camera home.
