I'm trying to install the Marlin file browser. I've already installed many required packages but I don't know what to do about this varka error. Here is the output from cmake (the previous step) and make (the error-producing step).

[zzz@localhost build]$ cmake ..

Did you do a yum search varka? –  slm Dec 23 '12 at 14:34
    
Just tried yum search varka and didn't get anything. I also tried yum list varka and that came up empty too. –  Fonnae Dec 23 '12 at 15:00
    
My cursory Google search indicates that Marlin and varka are Ubuntu-specific packages. –  vonbrand Jan 26 '13 at 3:19

If you don't mind compiling from source, you can get Varka from Launchpad. (If you have Bazaar installed, the easiest way to get the source is to type bzr branch lp:varka.)

To install (assuming that you have the required packages), navigate into the source directory, which should be named varka.

Then do

mkdir build
cd build
cmake ..
make
sudo make install

If you don't have the required dependencies, it will error, and tell you what dependencies you need.
