  • can anybody help me? i try to install GDL into Opensuse 11.4 for 2 days ago, but still not success with its installing

    it shows this error message

    libtool: Version mismatch error.  This is libtool 2.4 Debian-2.4-2ubuntu1, but the
    libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from libtool 2.2.6b.
    libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.4 Debian-2.4-2ubuntu1
    libtool: and run autoconf again.
    make: ***  Fehler 63
    make: Leaving directory `/home/vsophan/Downloads/gdl-0.9.2/src'

    could somebody recommend me what should i do ?

    best regard

     
  • Hello,
    Are you using the new 0.9.2 version?
    One thing to do would be to run "libtoolize -f -i" which should recreate the libtool-related files.
    Then, as suggested in the error message you quoted, you could run "autoreconf"

    and you can alos try the "cmake" way

    tar -zxf gdl-0.9.2
    cd gdl-0.9.2
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake ..
    (and you have to slect to desactivate with "-Dpython=off" by example if python not available
    and you wouldn't like to install it)
    make
    cd ..
    sh ./quick_start.sh

    HTH

    yes i am using 0.9.2 version. How can i run "libtoolize -f -i" or "autoreconf" i am new for unix. could you tell me more in detail. thanks alot . i use opensuse 11.4

    @alaingdl

    i already did what you suggessed me, but still not success.

     
  • Well, if you're new to unix, the quickest thing to do would be to use a pre-built package… but there's no GDL package for OpenSUSe :(. We have requested one on the OpenSUSE "wishlist" 13 months ago:
    https://features.opensuse.org/308735
    Would be great if you could "vote" for it.

    Concerning the steps to build gdl, please unpack the gdl tarball, open a terminal, and change the working directory to the one created during unpacking, and…
    $ cd gdl
    $ libtoolize -f -i
    $ autoreconf
    $ ./configure -prefix=/usr
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

    HTH,

    I also struggled to install GDL on openSUSE 11.4, but I failed. I succeeded installing GDL on Fedora 16. It was easy.

    I voted 'yes', and plan on installing this on my Suse 12.1 when I get home.
