Unhappy MY compiling problems deserve their own thread.


I'll start this by saying that I've looked all over the place using both google and the search function on here. I've tried so very hard to find a solution to my problem, but to no avail. So i turn to you, dear linuxquestions members, and humbly admit that i have no idea what to do next.

A quick and dirty history of what i've done so far:
  1. Tried to ./Configure unrealircd
  2. Ran into major problems (no compiler installed? Oh noes!)
  3. Installed gcc (all of it) using swaret
  4. Tried again, more problems
  5. Installed binutils using swaret (or slackpkg, maybe)
  6. Updated links in /usr/src/
  7. Tried again, more problems

So i give you this, for starters. It's fairly self-explanatory (i hope):

Code:
root@mwowm:~/Unreal3.2.5/Unreal3.2# echo 'main(){}' >> test.cpp
root@mwowm:~/Unreal3.2.5/Unreal3.2# g++ -v test.cpp

test.cpp:1: error: `int main()' previously defined here
root@mwowm:~/Unreal3.2.5/Unreal3.2#
Although i'm sure that this plainly says what's going wrong here, i can't seem to figure it out. Would it help if i pasted the log of the errors encountered when attempting to configure unreal?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and i will reward the poster(s) of said help with many a free internet.

Again, please help me. I'm scared.

Ah, what the heck, here's the config.log:

Code:
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by configure, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure --with-showlistmodes --enable-nospoof --enable-ssl --enable-ziplinks --enable-inet6 --enable-prefixaq --with-listen=5 --with-dpath=/root/Unreal3.2.5/Unreal3.2 --with-spath=/root/Unreal3.2.5/Unreal3.2/src/ircd --with-nick-history=2000 --with-sendq=3000000 --with-bufferpool=18 --with-hostname=mwowm.taphouse.org --with-permissions=0600 --with-fd-setsize=1024 --enable-dynamic-linking

install the kernel-headers that your glibc was compiled against.

That got me a bit farther, i installed them using slackpkg.

New problem is this:

./configure: line 12689: make: command not found

So... i need to, like... install "make"?

I should point out that although i might sound like i have some idea of what I'm doing, I'm completely new to compiling things. One of my earlier problems (yesterday) what that although i had the compiler installed, i didn't have the assembler.

So where do we go from here?

Thanks for your help so far,


Bucky

also, this still happens:

Code:
root@mwowm:~/Unreal3.2.5/Unreal3.2# g++ -O test.cpp
test.cpp: In function `int main()':
test.cpp:2: error: redefinition of `int main()'
test.cpp:1: error: `int main()' previously defined here
root@mwowm:~/Unreal3.2.5/Unreal3.2#
Which is, to say the least, annoying.

From ZipSlack README.1st

Quote:
To add a complete development system you'll need to install the packages from the Slackware D (development) and L (libraries) series using the installpkg package utility. For example, if you've mounted a Slackware CD on /mnt/cdrom:

cd /mnt/cdrom/slackware
installpkg d/*.tgz l/*.tgz

Note that this will add more than 300MB of software, so you'd better have the space for it! If you're looking to add a more modest development environment for C and C++, you'll need at least these packages for good results:

d/binutils d/gcc d/gcc-g++ d/kernel-headers d/make l/glibc
From binutils-2.15.92.0.2-i486-3.txt:
Quote:
binutils: binutils (GNU binary development tools)
binutils:
binutils: Binutils is a collection of binary utilities. It includes "as" (the
binutils: portable GNU assembler), "ld" (the GNU linker), and other utilities
binutils: for creating and working with binary programs.
binutils:
binutils: These utilities are REQUIRED to compile C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran,
binutils: and most other programming languages.
I've found that by installing all of the D series and L series I rarely have to worry during 99% of my compiles.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, though as you were typing that, it was successfully compiling.

My mistake (probably common) was that when installing Slackware, i decided not to install the /d stuff. No gcc, no nothing. The problem that i faced in trying to do so, after the fact, was that even though slackware has a million different tools for dealing with packages, there is atrocious neglect of dependencies.

What i found was that i was installing gcc, then trying ot compile. That wasn't working, so i installed binutils. Still not working, i installed my kernel headers. Guess what happened next? Not working. On to installing Make... you get the idea.

After every install, i was reminded that my @$$ was totally covered (dependency-wise). That was not, however, entirely true.

In retrospect, i suppose that i should have gone back to the Slack CD's and just installed everything from /d.

So in the end, not unlike in windows, i was stuck pulling out my hair and installing and installing and installing, until it worked.

Thanks a bunch for the help, though, both of you. I've taken the liberty of forwarding you several internets.

As a minimum for compiling software you'll need

binutils
gcc(plus whatever other compiler -in your case g++
make
kernel headers
full glibc from the /l directory

You also usually need sed and perl installed.
For autoconf sources such as you are compiling you need:
autoconf
automake
m4
libtool

If compiling anything using GTK-2 libs you'll need pkgconfig installed also.
Everything else is pretty much gravy.

Exactly.

Looking back at this whole thing, i wish that when i'd installed gcc (or any of what i installed) it had pointed out that what i was installing was only part of what i needed.

Well, yeah.

But getting to there is... well... what's the opposite of gravy?
