why does it have to be so hard?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to compile superkaramba, but when i run configure, it tells me that it cannot continue cause of missing python headers:


hecking for Python directory... /usr/local

checking for Python2.4... header no library no modules /usr/lib/python2.4

checking for Python2.3... header no library no modules no

checking for Python2.2... header no library no modules no

checking for Python2.1... header no library no modules no

checking for Python2.0... header no library no modules no

checking for Python1.5... header no library no modules no

checking for libxmms... ./configure: line 43081: xmms-config: command not found

./configure: line 43083: xmms-config: command not found


checking for main in -lknewstuff... yes

checking for main in -lkvm... no

checking if doc should be compiled... yes

checking if superkaramba should be compiled... no

configure: creating ./config.status

fast creating Makefile

fast creating doc/Makefile

fast creating doc/superkaramba/Makefile

fast creating superkaramba/Makefile

fast creating superkaramba/doc/Makefile

fast creating superkaramba/icons/Makefile

fast creating superkaramba/mimetypes/Makefile

fast creating superkaramba/src/Makefile

config.pl: fast created 8 file(s).

config.status: creating config.h

config.status: config.h is unchanged

config.status: executing depfiles commands


Superkaramba can't be compiled

because of missing Python libraries/headers.

Why are you trying to compile it? Just install it by using Install Software, or:


urpmi superkaramba


only compile unless you really have to!! Compile later when you're more comfortable with what you're doing.
