QUEST TO FIND mm....


Hi,

I need to make sure that I have the following installed on my system before I attempt to install the package SMS Server Tools:

mm Shared Memory Library
gcc GNU Compiler Collection
glibc GNU C Library
make GNU Make
tar GNU Tape Archiver

I have done whereis mm etc and got the following results:

[root@localhost smstools]# whereis mm
mm: /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/mm /usr/src/linux-2.4/mm
[root@localhost smstools]#

However, then when I try and perform a make command on the smstools make file, I get the following error:

[root@localhost smstools]# make -s
/bin/sh: line 1: mm-config: command not found
/bin/sh: line 1: mm-config: command not found
smsd.c:22:16: mm.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [../bin/smsd] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

Have I got mm installed? If so, why is this error occurring?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Not 100% sure but it could be that the package is looking for mm in /usr/src/linux and you might not have it linked to your current build.

Or it could also be that it has nothing to do with the kernel and you need to install 'mm'. What does 'slocate mm-config' have to say?

[matt@localhost matt]$ slocate mm-config
[matt@localhost matt]$

Just gives me a prompt again...that means mm-config can't be found right?

I've downloaded it from http://www.ossp.org/pkg/lib/mm/

If I have it installed, and I install it again, am I likely to break my system?

OSSP mm - Shared Memory Allocation

INSTALL
=======

To install the MM library into /path/to/mm/{bin,lib,include,man}/ perform
the following steps in your shell:

$ ./configure --prefix=/path/to/mm
$ make
$ make test
$ make install

This installs at least a static variant of the MM library and when your
platforms support it, also a shared library variant of the MM library.

Above, the install instructions.

Please forgive my ignorance

Thanks for your help.
