staden-src-1-7-0 on FC7 newbie compile notes

  • Nobody/Anonymous


    Have just installed staden packages on fedora core 7 i386 and experienced several issues that took a whole lot of tinkering to fix.  Here's the recipe that worked for me (I compile in user ~/Download/staden... , then moved the unix dist to /usr/local/share/staden/)

    1) Download & unpack source
    2) Edit staden.profile (to reflect src directory i.e. uncomment STADENROOT=... line and change directory to point to your root of staden source)
    3) source staden.profile
    4) If g77 compat libraries are not installed - yum install compat-gcc-34-g77.i386
    5) ** ln -s /lib/ /lib/ **
    6) ** cd $STADENROOT/home/ir210/Download/staden-src-1-7-0/course/texi
    7) ** mv *.texi *.texi.bak
    8) ** mv course.texi.bak course.texi # one course.texi is required to stop compile complaints
    9) cd $STADENROOT/src
    10) make -f Makefile.thirdparty
    11) cd ..
    12) make
    13) make distunix
    14) ** sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/share/staden
    15) ** sudo cp -a $STADENROOT/distrib/unix-rel-1-7-0 /usr/local/share/staden/
    16) ** Edit staden.profile of /usr/local/share/staden/unix-rel-1-7-0 to set STADENROOT to new dist loction
    17) ** sudo ln -s /usr/local/share/staden/unix-rel-1-7-0/staden.profile /etc/profiles.d/
    18) That's it you are done.  Thanks to the developers.  This is a really useful package

    stuff with ** are very much solutions to my install specific problems, but should give you some ideas to resolve various problems that you encounter.  Of note, step 5 - fixed -libg2c not found problem.  Googling suggests that compat-gcc-34-g77 doesn't create the symlink, while steps 6-8 fixed a failure to compile course documentation in texinfo format [exercise1.texi has a bug] (I got rid of it!) step 16 puts a symlink to staden.profile in the /etc/profile.d/ to ensure that all users get access to the programs.

    Hope this helps someone.

      I have problem with step 3.

      I am installing staden-1.7.0 on a P4, 1GB RAM FC9. The terminal crashes during execution of $source staden.profile.

      Is there anyone else experiencing this problem? What should I do to overcome this? Should I source it as root?

      Is there a write up on the installation somewhere?

      Is the file init_tar.1.texi missing or was it supposed to be generated?

      From $STADENROOT/make
      cd manual; make
      make[2]: Entering directory `/home/root/Download/Staden1.7.0/staden-src-1-7-0/doc/manual'
      m4 -Uunix -D_unix -D_tex < manual.texi > manual_unix.texinfo
      m4:manpages-t.texi:79: cannot open `init_tar.1.texi': No such file or directory
      make[2]: *** [manual_unix.texinfo] Error 1
      rm manual_unix.texinfo
      make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/root/Download/Staden1.7.0/staden-src-1-7-0/doc/manual'
      make[1]: *** [all] Error 2

      I could not find file init_tar.1.texi in CVS too.
