Building a Slackware Package when trackinstall -i="make install" fails
There are some libs that I want to build, as *.t?z, I know how to build them from source as binaries, things like PETSc, Spooles, ARPACK...
But I do not want to "make install" them, what I want after the build is to be able to create them as packages, that can easily be managed...
But trying to run trackinstall -i="make install" in the source tree of PETSc, for instance, yelds an error, even after having configured --prefix=/usr/local ... yet the thing was actually built...
I've searched in man trackinstall but the closest thing I've found so far is the "install line", still this fails...
Any hints on how should i proceed...?
What command is supposed to be used to install the libs? I mean what does the README say?
I do not have my slackware laptop w/ me right now, but I will check and post back tomorrow the detailed steps,
but in the manwhile, the sequence that I follow is from their install instructions... :
Refering to PETSc specifically... :
More specifically :
So Far, I have set the environment variables, configured with prefix /usr/local, and tried trackinstall with no success...
Like I told you, the detailed error message i do not know by head, by I can post it back here tomorrow... :-)
