Unhappy Software installation knowledge needed please...


Hello,

I'm a Newbie who just downloaded my first software called Player/Stage. 3 tar.gz files were unpacked already by the GUI program. However, after I cd into the directory where I unpacked them, I could not ./configure them.

The errors read :-

[Barch@localhost Barch]$ cd PlayerStage
[Barch@localhost PlayerStage]$ ls
librtk-src-2.2.0 player-src-1.3.2 stage-src-1.3.2
librtk-src-2.2.0.tar.gz player-src-1.3.2.tar.gz stage-src-1.3.2.tar.gz
[Barch@localhost PlayerStage]$ ./configure librtk-src-2.2.0
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Does anyone have any clue how to help me?

By the way, I installed my Linux Redhat 8 from the "SAMS Teach Yourself Redhat Linux 8 in 24 hours" from 2 CDs.

I'm wondering if that is the complete installation (ie..just with 2 CDs???)

This is because I tried to add packages like the GNOME software development tools and the KDE software development tools but found that I have some failed dependencies (not RPMs, but like libs...etc, which I could not find in the 2 installation CDs.)

So I guess there are like 2 queries here. Are they linked somehow?

Someone please help....many thanks

It looks like you will need to cd into the directories:
librtk-src-2.2.0 player-src-1.3.2 stage-src-1.3.2

and run ./configure in there. I would be surprised if there was docuemtntation somewhere. Look for a file called INSTALL or README. Where did you download it from?

Hey,

I downloaded the software from

http://playerstage.sourceforge.net

Thanks alot! ./configure was processed but was not successful. As shown below:

[Barch@localhost librtk-src-2.2.0]$ ./configure
creating cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking target system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH

Thus, I could not "make"

It seems like I have lots of software development packages not installed as I mentioned in my first thread post. Do you think the install from the 2 CDs was not complete? Or what should I do?

Thank you!

You will need to install a compiler such as gcc. If should be on one of the CDs.
