manual install from tarball make error


We have an issue with installing from a tarball. We are trying to install this on CentOS 5.5 kernel version 2.6.9-023stab052.4-smp

I run autogen.sh in the install directory. It seems to work. Then I go to the build subdirectory, so the build files don't clutter up the source code. I type ../configure --prefix=/home/<username>/brailleblaster/dist/native,
then type make. Make gives the following errors:

../libtool: line 826: X--tag=CC: command not found
../libtool: line 859: libtool: ignoring unknown tag : command not found
../libtool: line 826: X--mode=compile: command not found
../libtool: line 992: *** Warning: inferring the mode of operation is deprecated.: command not found

make[3]: *** [progname.lo] Error 1
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2

When we run this from a straight red hat distro, it installs with no errors. Does anyone have any advice to offer?

Thanks!

Centos 5 runs a 2.6.18 based kernel. The entire system is based around that. Trying to run an older kernel is going to cuase all kinds of issues. Running a newer kernel is usually possible(if one is careful) but running an older kernel will almost always end badly.

Thanks for the reply. I did run yum update and am now on kernel version 2.6.9-023stab052.4-smp. Should I update to a newer version?

I found some more errors to document for this thread:

Sombody has MASSIVELY messed with your install. From Centos 5.0 to Centos 5.9 the kernel is (and will be) a 2.6.18 based kernel. By switching your kernel to a non .18 kernel it makes your install not really a Centos 5 install. You can verify this by posting over on the Centos forum.

You really need to be talking to whoever "customized" the system and find out what they did.

You're using libtool version 2? Downgrading to older libtool (1.5.x) should help.

This is a 1and1 VPS server. Here is the output of uname -a:

[root@server ~]# uname -a
Linux 2.6.9-023stab052.4-smp #1 SMP Tue May 11 19:21:39 MSD 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I will try to downgrade to libtool 1.5.x.

Thanks!

Nominal Animal, it looks like I am using the suggested version of libtool:

[root@server ~]# yum info libtool

Name : libtool
Arch : x86_64
Version : 1.5.22
Release : 7.el5_4
Size : 2.4 M
Repo : installed

Any other suggestions?

What is it, you are trying to install ?

Please tell the full file name for the tarball in question.

And show a link for downloading it.

rpm -qa libtool
libtool-1.5.22-7.el5_4.x86_64

But the 'libtool' that is used is a "libtool generated" file in
liblouis-2.1.1/ ( Created when you run ./configure ).
I can't say, why you get a 'libtool' file, that's unusable.


You can try out my result : liblouis-2.1.1-2.x86_64.rpm
