problem with cln whie compiling libqalculate/ opensuse 11


I installed the latest cln and cln-devel via yast. After trying ./configure in the libqalculate directory i get this error:
Quote:
checking for CLN - version >= 1.1.0... no
*** The cln-config script installed by CLN could not be found
*** If CLN was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the CLN_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to cln-config.
configure: error: No suitable installed version of CLN could be found.
I tried compiling the source package from cln's home directory but the result's the same. I changed the prefix :
Quote:
./configure --with-cln-prefix=/usr/lib/
and got this:

Quote:
checking for cln-config... /usr/lib//bin/cln-config
checking for CLN - version >= 1.1.0... ./configure: line 21073: /usr/lib//bin/cln-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 21074: /usr/lib//bin/cln-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 21075: /usr/lib//bin/cln-config: No such file or directory
./configure: line 21082: test: `)' expected, found 1
no
*** Could not run CLN test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding CLN or finding the wrong
*** version of CLN. If it is not finding CLN, you'll need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point
*** to the installed location. Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system.
configure: error: No suitable installed version of CLN could be found.
I thought that because of this line :
Quote:
./configure: line 21074: /usr/lib//bin/cln-config: No such file or directory
I have to edit the configure file by myself, which is no problem but there;s no cln-config file on my disk. Could anyone please help? I used qalculate before and i can't imagine doing anything without it.

First, why not just install qalculate using yast.

Second, which version of CLN do you have installed. CLN no longer uses cln-config, rather it uses a metadata (*.pc) file. CLN 1.1.13 is the last version to use cln-config IIRC. The libqalculate devs are behind the times and need to fix their configure script. If you don't want to downgrade CLN, you could create a cln-config.

Third, assuming you are using an older version of CLN or a cln-config you create, you would pass --with-cln-prefix=/usr not --with-cln-prefix=/usr/lib/. Of course the libqalculate configure script assumes the /usr prefix by default, so you shouldn't need to pass anything.

I couldn't find qalculate in yast. I tried to installed an older version of cln from a rpm and then libqalculate and qalculate-gtk the same way, however I can't find qalculate-kde, but that doesn't meter. I only want to know if the whole thing will work after I make an update. The new cln doesn't include libcln.so.4 (it includes libcln.so.4)which is needed by libqalculate.

cln-1.2.2 (the current stable version I think) provides libcln-so.5.0.2. Try building and installing cln-1.1.13 which, I suspect provided version 4 of libcln. cln-1.1.3 also installs cln-config. I suspect libqalculate hasn't been updated since cln-1.1.13 which is why newer versions of CLN don't work.

I already did that (before writing the last post). But I'm afraid that I can't update cln while updating all packages, am I right?

You tried to do what? Build and install cln-1.1.13? You should be able to build and install cln-1.1.13 and then libqalculate-0.9.6.

I don't understand your question relative to updating all packages when you update cln. Do you mean updating cln using YAST? I'm not at all familiar with YAST, but there may be a way to install a specific version of a package (e.g., cln-1.1.13) rather than the latest stable version. If that's not possible, then install CLN and libqalculate from source but install them in /usr/local or your $HOME directory. That way YAST won't blow away the version of CLN you need for libqalculate.
