Still trying to install tar files

Recommended Posts

Is there any reason why you're compiling amule 2.1.2 instead of using the one in Mandriva's repositories? Here's what I have listed:

 

[ian@esprit ~]$ urpmf --name amule
amule:amule-2.1.0-1.1.20060plf.i586.rpm
amule-commandline:amule-commandline-2.1.0-1.1.20060plf.i586.rpm
amule-webserver:amule-webserver-2.1.0-1.1.20060plf.i586.rpm

 

the top one is 2.1.0, which is only a slight release below what you're trying to compile. Maybe this would be OK instead of compiling?

 

urpmi amule

 

will install it. However, the last command of your compile, seems to want wx-config/wxwidgets installing, but I don't see this in the urpmi repositories, so you'd need the source for this one. Or, just use urpmi for amule as I detailed above.

 

EDIT:

 

Found some wxgtk stuff, but it's libwxgtk. Here's the output:

 

[ian@esprit ~]$ urpmf --name wxgtk

libwxgtk2.4-devel:libwxgtk2.4-devel-2.4.2-8mdk.i586.rpm

 

I think you just need libwxgtk2.6 and libwxgtk2.6-devel.

 

urpmi libwxgtk2.6 libwxgtk2.6-devel

Things are simpler than that.

Our friend simply tried to run again ./configure as normal user in the SAME directory he has run that one a root, and he simply kicks against files created by his previous attempt, which have root priviledges...

I'd be tempted just to use the rpm versions, a lot less hassle, and it will solve the dependencies for you. Just installing the rpm of amule would have it up and running within minutes, and download any dependencies it needs :P

When I first tried to install aMule I couldn't get any servers so I went to the aMule forum and did a search and this is what I found

http://forum.amule.org/thread.php?threadid=10183&sid= This poor guy was as lost as I am and the only thing (Kry Kry is a male

Main Developer / Admin / Rude ) said was update to aMule2.1.2. I found a few other searches where they only argued over what the correct answer was so it was certain I was not going to get a straight answer there so I started looking for aMule and the only aMule 2.1.2

I could find was a tar file. I have never been able to install a tar successively so I thought I would try this one well it looks like I picked the wrong one to try because it has been one problem after another. I tried to use urpmi again and have the same problem when trying to get

a server list. I updated

 

Failed to load server.met file '/home/maparus/.aMule/server.met.download', unknown format encountered. & Not connected Kad off

 

I did learn a few things though I know NOT to compile in root only at the end where I make file. And I may have the tools now to install a tar file that is less complacated than this one was. I would like to install a tar just once to see if I can do it. After 6 months of using Linux it has become a quest. So that's the whole story in a nutshell

the lesson:

when compiling from source do all the steps except the very last (make install) as your regular user ;)

 

unfortunately mandriva doesn't make installing from source (tar.gz) easy, because you have to figure out all the dependencies then hunt down the rpm's that contain the sources for those dependencies (*-devel packages) and even then it may fail because mandriva may just be out of date.

 

This is one of the things that drove me to changing distributions.
