Unhappy need samba help.....


I am trying to install the samba 2.2 for my mandrake 8.0....for some reason it didn't install in the original download. After compiling the source files and then "make" I recieved:

printing/print_cups.c:25:23: cups/cups.h: No such file or directory
printing/print_cups.c:26:27: cups/language.h: No such file or Dir

So....I downloaded the rpm and source for cups-1.1.7-1.2mdk..
did the install; but I still get the same error when I repeat the process above..Is there something that I am missing here?

When I run into problems like these I try two options. First I try to determine what config file was built from the configure scripts and delete that file. If that doesn't work, I just delete the entire source directory and unpack the tarball again, re-running the ./configure scripts.

Does Mandrake have RPMs available? Check on rpmfind.net, Mandrake usually gets packages ready in a hurry. I say take advantage of package managers whenever possible. I know that doesn't help your compile problem, just a random thought.

Uh. You downloaded the gzipped tarball, right? and you unpacked it to a new directory? Dump that directory and unpack the tarball again. Should take all of about 6 to 10 seconds, not counting the unzip time, which could be up to 30 or more seconds. I had to do this again yesterday to get gtk+ to see the correct version of qtlib. The procedure went like this.

try to build gtk+ from source, but qtlib did not meet the minimum requirements.

built qtlib from source

tried to ./configure and recompile gtk+, but it still said no go. messed with .config and all that. said 'cap it' and rm -r the source folder.

uzipped the source again, ./configured and compiled no probs.

About the only reason I can see for not dumping the source dir is if you customized a lot of the .configure stuff yourself.

I just remove the source directory for the package in question. Do this with MINIMUM permissions (less damage if you do something kooky). I usually do everything as a reg user and then 'su' for the final 'make install'.

I realize that dumping and unpacking the source again is not the prettiest solution, but unless you want to go thru all the config file...
