    Hi all

    I am trying to install GT.M on a 64bit Ubuntu virtual machine.

    I have downloaded the file. when i try execute sudo sh ./configure.

    I get the following error : cannot find file geteuid - although i can see this file in the directory?????

    so i opened the ./configure script and removed that piece of code....

    then the script executes fine till right at the end where it says:

    configure 373 : ./mumps not found
    configure 423 : /usr/local/gtm/mumps not found
    few more errors

    The strange thing is i can see the files, i can see the mumps file in both ./mumps and /usr/local/gtm/mumps.

    I have checked the permissions and executable.....

    if i manually try execute mumps it just says "file not found" but i can see it.....?

    Any help would be appreciated....

      Try this:
      sudo apt-get install lib32ncurses5

      I think the error message might be a little misleading.

        "sudo aptitude install ia32-libs" might be more complete.

      Also, ganymede, please do not remove or alter any part of the installation script.  You are more likely to break something than fix something.

        32-bit GT.M runs very well on 64-bit Ubuntu - in fact, I run 64-bit Ubuntu on my laptop.  But you do need the ia32-libs package to allow 32-bit x86 applications to execute on x8664 (AMD64) and ia64 hardware.
