timidity++ won't build


I am trying to build timidity++ on my Slackware system. I downloaded the archive and the source code manually (not using sbopkg) from www.slackbuilds.com. The build fails during the configure phase.

Code:
patching file autoconf/libOggFLAC.m4
patching file autoconf/Makefile.am
patching file configure.in
patching file timidity/Makefile.am
patching file interface/Makefile.am
patching file interface/tk_c.c
patching file interface/tkpanel.tcl
patching file configure.in
Hunk #3 succeeded at 2269 (offset -18 lines).
patching file interface/Makefile.am
patching file interface/tclIndex
patching file interface/tk_c.c

I don't know where to get this libreadline.so.7 it gripes about. I tried soft-linking it to /usr/lib64/libreadline.so and running the build again, but it didn't work, so I deleted the symlink. Any clues to what's going on here?

It should be the other way around. libreadline.so should be a symlink to libreadline.so.7, which is normally found in /lib or /lib64. Please post the output of:
Code:
ls /lib64|grep readline
readlink /usr/lib64/libreadline.so
Also, as it seems to be gawk that is giving you the error, it would be worth checking its linkage:
Code:
ldd /usr/bin/gawk

Where do I get libreadline? I checked slackpkg and found nothing. I checked sbopkg and found something that looked java-ish, so I didn't think that was it either. I installed it anyway, and the error still persists. When I manually soft-link libreadline.so to libreadline.so.7, the error changes, but still persists. Is there a tool on slackware analogous to gentoo's equery? I think that's what I need.

You have the wrong version of the readline package. Gawk was built against version 7 so it can't link to version 6. Unfortunately you can't cure this kind of problem by cheating with symlinks; that just stores up trouble for later.

I just checked on one of the Slackware mirrors. Slackware 14.2 uses readline-6. Slackware Current uses readline-7. You don't say which version you are using but you seem to have mixed up packages from the two.

If you are on Slackware 14.2, you will need to reinstall gawk from there, so that it will link correctly with your version of libreadline. If it's Slackware Current, you will need to upgrade readline to version 7.

PS: I think it's gawk that is wrong. If you had the wrong version of readline, bash wouldn't work either.

I am having some trouble adjusting to Slackware. I've used Gentoo from 2005 till 2015. On Gentoo, I set my profile ONCE and it stays set. With Slackware, I choose the mirror I want, and it changes from time to time. The only mirror I have uncommented in /etc/slackpkg/mirrors is ftp://mirrors.easynews.com/linux/sla...ckware64-14.2/. Is this the correct one for Slackware stable 14.2? I have run into problems in the past related to mixing 14.2 and -current. I seem to be having one such problem right now.

I wanted to make sure that gawk was correct, so I sought to reinstall it:
Code:
root@caitlyn:~# slackpkg search gawk

awk: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Looking for gawk in package list. Please wait... awk: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
DONE

The list below shows all packages with name matching "gawk".

awk: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

You can search specific files using "slackpkg file-search file".

How do I reinstall gawk for slackware 14.2?

I would avoid using slackpkg right now. Complex tools don't work well when you have incompatible packages. Go to your local mirror with your browser and download the correct gawk from Slackware14.2 by hand. Then use the low-level Slackware installation tool to do a reverse upgrade. I think it's called something like installpkg or upgradepkg. If you're not used to using these simpler tools, read up on them first.

OK. I grabbed the gawk archive in my browser and downloaded it, and then installed it with installpkg. My TiMidity slackbuild completed building successfully. So I guess this one is [SOLVED]. Thank you for your help.
