I am trying to install this software called acqu-root. It depends on the main software called root. I managed to install the main software but having problems with the acqu-root. I get the following error.

[kabi@localhost build]$ cmake ..

You need to install lzma-devel using yum (Fedora, RHEL, CentOS...), or liblzma-dev using apt-get or aptitude (Debian, Ubuntu...); it contains LibLZMA which the CMake configuration is looking for.

  • Hi, I tried installing the software on the Ubuntu, but I couldn't find the package lzma-devel, there is only lzma-dev could you instruct me how to install lzma-devel on Ubuntu? or how to remove lzma-devel references from cmake? – Santosh Linkha Feb 17 '15 at 13:45
  • I was going by the Fedora tag; on Ubuntu it is just lzma-dev or liblzma-dev depending on what your source really needs. – Stephen Kitt Feb 17 '15 at 14:01
  • thanks .. installing liblzma resolved the error. earlier I had tried installing this on fedora, now I am trying this on ubuntu. – Santosh Linkha Feb 17 '15 at 14:15


yum install xz-devel

on Centos to get the liblzma libraries (for Silver-searcher, for example. Also may need pcre-devel for the libpcre dependency)
