Question Problems compiling bwbar


I have downloaded the file bwbar-1.2.tar.gz from kernel.org, but when I type make i comes up with an error and it fails to compile..

And the problem is: I really have no clue whatsoever on whats wrong.. Can anyone please help?

Rehat 9
gcc 3.2.2

Frequently in C/C++ and many other langues only the first error matters much.
Everything else is a result of that, in this case that holds true.

bwbar.c:32:17: png.h: No such file or directory

You need to install libpng

http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/libpng.html

Try changing the makefile
gcc -Wall -O2 -s -o bwbar bwbar.c -lpng

Add -I/usr/include -I/usr/local/include
To form:

gcc -Wall -I/usr/include -I/usr/local/include -O2 -s -o bwbar bwbar.c -lpng

That might work.

Now I have update the libpng rpm to 1.2.2-16 and it outputs the following:


[root@trinisrv bwbar-1.2]# make
gcc -Wall -O2 -s -o bwbar bwbar.c -lpng
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `deflate'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `inflate'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `inflateInit_'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `crc32'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `pow'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `deflateInit2_'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `inflateReset'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `deflateReset'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `inflateEnd'
/usr/local/lib/libpng.so: undefined reference to `deflateEnd'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [bwbar] Error 1

BTW, I tried chaning the makefile, but it doesn't make any difference at all.. Still the same output as above..

Instead of -lpng use:

-L/usr/lib -Wl,-rpath,/usr/lib -lpng12 -lz -lm

How I got to this is:

libpng-config --ldflags

You can alternativly use:

`libpng-config --ldflags` instead of -lpng12
When I'm too lazy to write a configure and I just make a makefile I use this. It executes the program and uses it's output. Note the ` encasing it.

Many many if not most libraries of this sort have this kind of program.
ls /usr/bin |grep config
To get a list of them, or just use the tab autocomplete to find them.
Seems that you don't need the cflags but for future refenrece you'd need

libpng-config --cflags and libpng-config --ldflags

The former is used when generating object files, .o files, that's the kind of error you had in the first place. The latter is for linking the kind of error you have now.
