The linux binary of gap4 did not started because the iwidgets directory is missing. When I looked it up closely, I have found that a dead symlink was packed:
ls -l /usr/local/staden-linux-x86-1-7-0/lib/iwidgets
lrwxrwxrwx 1 205 701 57 2007-03-30 12:03 /usr/local/staden-linux-x86-1-7-0/lib/iwidgets -> /nfs/team71/psg/jkb/work/sf/staden-HEAD/lib/iwidgets4.0.1
I have tried to compile the source and was lost in the "Makefile jungle". The README.build is confusing for simpler life forms like me... The introduction of the "./configure;make;make install" sequence would ease things tremendously. And would avoid the situations above. The last error was:
make: *** No rule to make target `../zlib/zlib.h', needed by `utils/linux-binaries/compress.o'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/tmp/staden-src-1-7-0/src/io_lib'
make: *** [io_lib] Error 2
There are two "zlib.h" -s:
I could not figure out why a third would be necessary.
Yours sincerely: PE
