Install Staden-src-1-7-0 on /linux-x86_64

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Hi, I have problem compile the package and here are what I have done:

    # first compile all the libraries
    cd /usr/local/staden/staden-src-1-7-0
    export STADENROOT=`pwd`
    . staden.profile
    cd src
    make -f Makefile.thirdparty

    # the program ran for a while then an error appear saying /usr/local/staden/staden-src-1-7-0/lib/iwidgets can't be removed because it's a directory. So I manually delete the directory and rerun make:

    rm /usr/local/staden/staden-src-1-7-0/lib/iwidgets
    make -f Makefile.rhirdparty

    # at this point everything seems to be fine (but I was just guessing)
    # Then I compile the staden package
    cd /usr/local/staden/staden-src-1-7-0
    make 2>&1 | tee make.out

    # then the program ran for a while and show the errors below (far below):

      I got the exact same problem on my x86_64 system. Did you solve yours?

      Hallo Jean,

      ... I solved the problem you had using the following procedure:

      The problem is indeed the compiled libz.a . To recompile that piece using the -fPIC compiler option solves the problem. How to do this:

      1. go into the directory <wherever_you_inst_it>/src/zlib (zlib should be a symlink to zlib-1.2.2)
      2. do a "make clean"
      3. edit Makefile and change the following line




      4. run "make" - it should compile the zlib.a file
      5. cp the zlib.a file to ../lib/linux-x86_64-binaries/libz.a
      6. cd to <wherever_you_inst_it>/src and do a "make -f Makefile.thirdparty" again

      ... I encounter in another problem after that:

      the wrong(32bit) libX was uses in linking stuff in tk_utils. To prevent that problem you will have to edit the <wherever_you_inst_it>/src/mk/ file.

      Change the line:

      XBIN    = /usr/X11R6/lib


      XBIN    = /usr/X11R6/lib64 (or wherever X11 is installed)

      This was on my RHEL Linux - but should be the same on Fedora for instance ...

      Doing again a "make -f Makefile.thirdparty" should now compile the rest of the Staden package ...

      ... hope this will help you a bit ... I posted it also to the list ...
