  • Hi, I am trying to compile animal-0.15.5 under Linux to get SIP running, and I'm having a problem that I believe is a bug the configure script. Is there any place where I can ask for help with animal? The bug tracker for this project is down it seems and I can't find a button anywhere around this website that would allow me to sign up for the mailing list. The problem is that the version number of my ImageMagick is not a number at all but contains characters, which the config script does not seem to like (see log below). Btw, additionally, the git server does not seem to support cloning via HTTP and the firewall of our university seems to block the git:// protocol. Is there any way to checkout via http? Thanks and greetings, Tim I am attaching a log of the session in case someone reads this and cares. ;) ts@durga:~/software> uname -a Linux durga #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-07-21 02:17:24 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux ts@durga:~/software> cd animal-0.15.5/ ts@durga:~/software/animal-0.15.5> ./configure configuring AnImaL 0.15.5 checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p checking for gawk... gawk checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes checking for gcc... gcc checking whether the C compiler works... yes checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out checking for suffix of executables... checking whether we are cross compiling... no checking for suffix of object files... o checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes checking for gcc option to accept ISO C89... none needed checking for style of include used by make...
