Make is simply for convenience. You can build software without it, it is just more difficult. When you run make to build something, it shows you the commands it is running. You can run those commands manually and get the same effect. $ echo "int main() {}" > test.c $ make test cc test.c -o test Which created a file called test. I can get the ...

The file fmpcb.h no longer exists in the most recent version of Arb. The fmprb_t and fmpcb_t types in Arb 1.x were obsoleted by the (more efficient) arb_t and acb_t types in Arb 2.x. The most recent release removed the legacy fmpcb_t type entirely. You should be able to get the code from that blog post working by substituting fmprb -> arb and fmpcb -> acb ...

Understanding the Basics From the wiki entry of MIPS architecture, it is described as, MIPS (originally an acronym for Microprocessor without Interlocked Pipeline Stages) is a reduced instruction set computer (RISC) instruction set (ISA) developed by MIPS Technologies (formerly MIPS Computer Systems, Inc.). From the wiki entry of the x86-64, ...

You need a cross toolchain, gcc (+binutils) which run on x86_64 but output mips binaries. You can try to build it yourself from scratch (google for examples: build cross toolchain) or download a pre-built one (like from Codesourcery) Or you may build your own with the help of some tool like crosstool-ng Also systems like buildroot build (or download) ...

You are pretty much screwed up you are unlucky and the make file doesn't offer a uninstall target (ie. make uninstall) you must track and see what files it installed/modified. Doing make -n install will print all the files as it will be writing them to the disk. Another method is running make install without root permissions. It will throw all the write ...

The fmpcb.h file cannot be found in the C include path. Besides, using quotes instead of brackets here is probably a bad idea as well. This test your trying to build is probably intended to be compiled along with the Arb library, which is why the author is using quotes. First things first, install the package providing this header file (and of course, the ...

NOTE: I'm on Fedora 20 but the issue would be the same here, only the pathing and Linux kernel version numbers are different. When I downloaded and attempted to run the install script, bash ./install.sh I noticed this error message as well. make: *** /lib/modules/3.16.3-200.fc20.x86_64/build: No such file or directory. Stop. The script isn't equipped ...

Try the command indicated in the error message: export FORCE_UNSAFE_CONFIGURE=1 && make This being said, it is true the "unsafe configure" requirement seems a bit strange. Double-check the log (config.log) and see if there is something more explicit in there.

Have you tried ./xcape ? You have to execute it this way, because the location is probably not defined in the $PATH variable.

The failsafe for generating a configure script is autoreconf -i, which not only takes care of calling autoconf itself, but also a host of other tools that may be needed.

If the file is called configure.ac, do $> autoconf Depends: M4, Automake If you're not sure what to do, try $> cat readme They must mean that you use "autoconf" to generate an executable "configure" file. So the order is: $> autoconf $> ./configure $> make $> make install

staging-next is, as of right now, currently broken, specifically f823182bc289 of staging-next is broken. If you really want to use staging-next, check out fcf1b73d08cd, which is near the top and does compile.

As others have already noted, make sure that for every deb … entry in /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*, you have a matching deb-src … entry. The rest of the line must be identical. The deb entry is for binary packages (i.e. ready to install), the deb-src is for source packages (i.e. ready to compile). The reason why the two kinds of ...

Thanks to @steeldriver, I figured out what to do. Just had to add the following ling to my /etc/apt/sources.list: deb-src ftp://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ stable main contrib deb-src repositories contain sources packages (as opposed to binary, ready-to-install packages) needed for compiling.

On my Centos system MAKE failed with error no ncurses (even though I already had ncurses) the following solution allowed me to upgrade/make zsh from 4.2.6 to 5.0.2 yum install ncurses-devel

Over the last 10 years I've been running multiple Gentoo systems with 1000+ packages using -O3 -march=native globally and have yet to run into any of these mythical stability issues that -O3 is supposed to have. Benchmarks of CPU intensive applications (like math/science apps) consistently show -O3 to produce faster code, after all it would be pointless if ...
