Trouble installing Magic 7.5


I am trying to install magic 7.5 - a vlsi CAD design tool and keep hitting brick walls - just when I think i may be getting closer something else is wrong and I am never able to complete the installation.

first I downloaded the .tgz, then I extracted it, then I went to my terminal and did ./configure - that took a while to get right, I had to install openGL, Tcl and Tk which I did, the last think i was trying to install because once running the ./configure it said:

-----------------------------------------------------------
Configuration Summary (principle requirements):

X11: yes
OpenGL: yes
Tcl/Tk: yes (version 8.5)
BLT: no

Tcl/Tk magic uses the BLT package to create a tree diagram
of the cell hierarchy in a design. Without it, this option
is unavailable. Consider installing the BLT package.

-----------------------------------------------------------

Use 'make' to compile and 'make install' to install.

Errors may not be printed to stdout: see files 'make.log'
and 'install.log' for complete error summary.

-----------------------------------------------------------

fine - so I downloaded the blt2.4z-patch-2 - which I tried to move around in the directory so that it would pick it up - and when after a couple hours of not getting it right I took it out and did a ./configure on it and it ran for a while.

then when it didnt work I decided to bugger it and started with the ./configure of magic - it configured, then i did the make, and the make install and i get this:

--- errors and warnings logged in file make.log
--- making header file database/database.h

I have no idea what to do next... please help - why can I not install this program?

either that or tell me of another vlsi design tool that i could possibly install and use!

Welcome to LQ.

'blt-2.4z' is a library, about 7 MB.
blt2.4z-patch-2 is just a patch, 27.9 kB.

Getting the library :
Debian : # apt-get install blt-dev
Ubuntu : sudo apt-get install blt-dev
Fedora : # yum install blt-devel
Mandriva + PCLinuxOS : # <command> libblt2-devel
... And which Linux are you using ? ?

The source code + patching :
http://packages.debian.org/lenny/blt
> > Links for blt
[blt_2.4z.orig.tar.gz] , [blt_2.4z-4.diff.gz]
or
wget http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...z.fc11.src.rpm
.....

Good luck !

Quote:
error: database/database.h: No such file or directory
'database.h' is created from 'database.h.in', using the
command './scripts/makedbh'. ( Ref. Makefile + make.log, etc.)
'makedbh' depends on 'csh' usually provided by the package 'tcsh'.
Install 'tcsh' and 'magic' can be compiled.
