nALFS won't install certian programs with the bare requirements


When I try to install Fontconfig with the (nALFS) BLFS-6.0 profile it gives me this:

W: Utilized package missing: dockbook utils ... E: some required
packages are missing: build aborted.


Like the message said "Utilized package missing" so it's not a required package.

Despite that I mannaged to install Links (the text web browser) without the "Utilized packages" or at least not all of them.

Whats going on?

nALFS tells not clearly what package is missing. The message about the docbook-utils is not related to the " really " missing package.

Look in the source of the fontconfig.xml what package will missed.
e.g.: In my profile-BLFS-20050301.tar.bz2, chapter 09, fontconfig.xml ( vi chapter09/fontconfig.xml ) i found that freetype and expat are required. One / All of them will missed by nALFS on Your PC, too.

Maybe there are other ways to find this info. I look first at the .xml's

Thanks, but that can't be it.
Because, I have expat and freetype. The only one I don't have is dockbook-utils. (which isn't required)

Hmm, that's a little bit strange.

Try another way, select the three programs ( freetype, fontconfig and expat ) in nALFS and let them compiling in one session.

Maybe it is not enough to HAVE these programs, eventual they MUST be compiled in the same session of nALFS.

Nope, and this time I tried it in sequential order (in same session) still askes me about that dockbook-utils.

No ones knows of the BLFS Profile doing this?

Sorry for the last hint which doesn't seem to help.

I found the same hint with google now: Maybe it will give You any additional help.

I tried to reproduce Your error, but with the BLFS-SVN-profile from 2005-07-08 it compile this three programs correct.

Also, i now suggest You use another profile.


Sincerely, RoadRunner.

I have nALFS-1.2.4 which one do you have?

(The link showed that there were versions of nALFS that were messed up. that may be the problem.)

Thanks again.

It wasn't talking about utilized depencies after all.

It seems the profile was the problem. Though I couldn't find the specific one you were talking about I was able to find a SVN of the BLFS Profile.

Although it still worked, libxml keeped complaining about not understanding some of the profile every time I ran it.

Gracias. (I don't like to be redundant)

REVISION:

Contrary to my last post it wasn't the profile that was the problem, or if it was it wasn't only that.

nALFS can only remember the files you installed if you cd in the profile where runit.sh is and do:
Code:
./runit.sh
or
Code:
/path/to/profile/runit.sh
and not when you do nALFS /path/to/xml.


Also the problem where
Quote:

happend because I replaced the new SVN profile's config_standard with the old profile's config_standard. (so I put the new one back in and manually changed the config files)
