Unhappy Cairo compilation problem


Hi friends,
While started to install GNOME environment packages, the first package installed is cairo(X libraries) but we got the following error.

make[4]: Entering directory `/myphepkgs/blfs/GNOME Packages/Caribou/cairo-1.10.2/util/cairo-gobject'
CC libcairo_gobject_la-cairo-gobject-enums.lo
CC libcairo_gobject_la-cairo-gobject-structs.lo
CCLD libcairo-gobject.la
/bin/sed: can't read Packages/Caribou/cairo-1.10.2/src/libcairo.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `Packages/Caribou/cairo-1.10.2/src/libcairo.la' is not a valid libtool archive
make[4]: *** [libcairo-gobject.la] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory `/myphepkgs/blfs/GNOME Packages/Caribou/cairo-1.10.2/util/cairo-gobject'
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/myphepkgs/blfs/GNOME Packages/Caribou/cairo-1.10.2/util'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/myphepkgs/blfs/GNOME Packages/Caribou/cairo-1.10.2/util'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/myphepkgs/blfs/GNOME Packages/Caribou/cairo-1.10.2'
make: *** [all] Error

libcairo.la file is available in the specified path but it cannot be read.
we hope someone will give the solution for this problem.

Regards,

what do you mean by cannot be read? is this a permission problem, or is this file damaged?

no, I cannot see the permissions, and also the error message you have got depends on the version of sed.

Hi friends,
This is not a big problem just install this package under xc directory which is created under root where all the graphical packages should be unzipped and installed.

example: root@Phenix [~/xc/GNOME Package/cairo-1.10.2]#

Have you tried compiling it in a directory that doesn't have a space in its name? Rename GNOME Packages => GNOME-Packages
