BrainStorm Storm Chasing Tool
I am attempting to install BrainStorm from source.
./config ran with no errors, however this it the output from make

make all-recursive

Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

Based on the errors, I'd suspect that you are missing one or more dependencies of the library kind.

I went looking via, and found this:

The software is released under the GPLv2 license and as source code, so you’ll have to build it and install it yourself. While this is helped along by the use of autogen, there are dependencies that are not listed. The following had to be installed on my Ubuntu 9.04 system:


After installing these two I was able to run autogen, which will have a default prefix of /usr/local/ . A third library came up as not loadable when I went to run the binary, libosmgpsmap, a quick install of libosmgpsmap0 resolved this.
So, you may need to install the three libraries named above.

Just installed all 3 of the above packages.

Still getting the same error :/

After installation, are they included in your path?

How do I tell (sorry for the newbishness :/ )
This is my first attempt at installing from source. I wouldn't have taken this on if I didn't NEED the application.

Thanks for the help
