Bristol 10.4 configure not finding JACK,ALSA, or "X11 include file" on Ubuntu studio


Hello. I am trying to compile Bristol 10.4 with JACK support.
I am using Ubuntu Feisty, with the Ubuntu Studio packages and KDE.
However,when I run the ./configure script, after configuring, it prints a listing that says:

bristol 0.10.4 :

|Build with JACK support....................... : false
|Build with ALSA support....................... : false
|X11 include availability...................... : false
|Installing data into.......................... : /usr/local/bristol

(note that this is not copied,
so it may be slightly different from the actual output, but the point is there.)

I know JACK is installed properly, because I have used Wired with it,
and I know ALSA works because I am using the default bristol(an older version) package with it.

When I just type make it starts to work, but then it stops immediatly with a whole slew of errors that deal with the GUI. (Maybe the X11 include thing?)

Thanks in advance(and afterwards as well )

You need to have the development packages installed for JACK, ALSA, and Xorg. These will be packages with (generally) the same name as the binary package, but will have -dev or -devel as a suffix.

weibullguy, you are right. I don't have libjack-dev installed. But I couldn't find anything about 'x11 include' and I have X11lib-6 installed.

Do you know what bristol could mean by 'x11 include' file?

You have libx11-6 installed and the corresponding development package with the header files is libx11-dev. However, this is only one of ~44 X-window libraries so be prepared to search for another one if libx11-dev doesn't work.

Yay! I installed libjack-dev and libx11-dev, and running configure reported that it found jack and x11 include! Right now it is compiling, and it hasn't thrown out any errors yet.

Darn. It didn't work. It started building then spit out a bunch of errors dealing with ALSA. I guess I have to find the ALSA development packages.

EDIT: I can't find anything that looks like the ALSA dev package. Does anyone know what it is called?

Post the last 20-30 lines of the failed make. It will be easier to direct you to the correct package if I know the header file(s) it is looking for.

Thanks weibullguy, but I found that I needed the libasound2-dev package. Now Bristol compiles, and works fine.
Thanks for your help getting it to work!
