Trying to Install NZBget Prereq's


Hey guys me again. I'm trying to install NZBget again but this time by pulling from the source directly. So I pulled the source and now I'm looking to install all the prereq's for the tool to work. This is what I have on the README file.

Quote:
=====================================
3. Prerequisites on POSIX
=====================================

NZBGet is developed on a linux-system, but it runs on other
POSIX platforms.

NZBGet absolutely needs the following libraries:

- libstdc++ (usually part of compiler)
- libxml2 (http://www.xmlsoft.org)

And the following libraries are optional:

- for curses-output-mode (enabled by default):
- libcurses (usually part of commercial systems)
or (better)
- libncurses (http://invisible-island.net/ncurses)

- for encrypted connections (TLS/SSL):
- OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org)
or
- GnuTLS (http://www.gnu.org/software/gnutls)

- for gzip support in web-server and web-client (enabled by default):
- zlib (http://www.zlib.net)

All these libraries are included in modern POSIX distributions and
should be available as installable packages. Please note that you also
need the developer packages for these libraries too, they package names
have often suffix "dev" or "devel". On other systems you may need to
download the libraries at the given URLs and compile them (see hints below).
I'm guessing that I use wget to pull from a URL and then use "apt install" to... well .... install it. The only issue is when I pulled libcurses it created a file instead of a package I'm able to install.

What gives? I'd appreciate any help I can get!
Thanks!

What do you mean by pulling? You can get all your dependencies with
Code:
$ apt-get install --build-deps nzbget
. Or you could just install it from the distro repos, and all that would be done for you.

Sorry my posts aren't usually because I'm stuck with an insanely difficult problem. Instead I make posts in order to learn from other users and how they would have completed the task I'm undertaking.

Hmmm wait so you're telling me I can simply use the --install-deps in order to install any dependencies for any program i want to install?

On another note I realized it wasn't working because I was using "wget" on the URL for the homepage and not the package. I found the package and downloaded it.

Untar'd it, ran "./configure" , "make", "make install". Hopefully that's all I need to do in order to install this package.

Thanks for any and all help!

OK after restarting and simply using the ".run" file that I downloaded from the NZBget website I ran the "sh" command and got it installed, GREAT! Now the only problem is the tool still isn't working. I still receive the same error as before. Hmmmmm. I think I'll just give up this time. Doesn't look like I'm going to be learning much if I keep slamming my head against the wall about this one problem. Thanks guys!

You could install the package from the distro repos. It would probably work then. And the switch is --build-deps, not --install-deps.
