Compiling LinuxSampler in Fedora 19 - libgig not found

Postby bntser » Tue Jul 16, 2013 4:46 pm

I'm trying to install the latest revision of LinuxSampler from svn in Fedora 19. I also tried the older tarballs and they have the same error.

Code: Select all
checking for GIG... no
Required libgig version not found!
You need to have libgig version 3.3.0 installed!


I installed (and uninstalled and installed again etc...) from both the tarball and svn versions of libgig and nothing changes. Otherwise the ./configure output looks good up to that point. I am finding the libgig files in my /lib folder so I'm guessing it is installed correctly, but maybe not. I don't get any errors compiling libgig at all, so I'm not sure where the problem is.

Possibily you might have a old libgig installed either in a different location or in the same location and the links are screwed up by having multiple versions. If you have linuxsampler stuff installed via packages try to remove those first before building linuxsampler. Note that you should see several links in your lib directory. For exmple mine looks like this:
$ ls -al /usr/lib/libgig.*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1822236 Feb 11 09:24 /usr/lib/libgig.a
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 931 Feb 11 09:24 /usr/lib/libgig.la
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Feb 11 10:11 /usr/lib/libgig.so -> libgig.so.6.4.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Feb 11 10:11 /usr/lib/libgig.so.6 -> libgig.so.6.4.0
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1214012 Feb 11 09:24 /usr/lib/libgig.so.6.4.0

Still having the same error. I removed libgig and reinstalled several times. I'm using the latest version, revision 2478.

Code: Select all
$ ls -a /usr/local/lib/libgig.*
/usr/local/lib/libgig.a   /usr/local/lib/libgig.so.6
/usr/local/lib/libgig.la  /usr/local/lib/libgig.so.6.4.0
/usr/local/lib/libgig.so


I tested gigdump and gigextract and they work fine. The output of -v is interesting, however:

Code: Select all
$ gigdump -v
gigdump revision 1.24
using libgig 3.3.0.svn5


Is is possible this is a naming problem? Maybe it is checking for 3.3.0 and getting 3.3.0.svn5 instead? Another thought I had was that linuxsampler is checking in the wrong place; like /usr/lib instead of the actual location of /usr/local/lib.

If you are using Fedora, then you probably want to compile it as .rpm package instead. Rui maintains binary rpm packages for convenience, so you can just download and install them if you do not want to compile them by yourself.

Otherwise if you want to compile it yourself and you do not want to build it as rpm, then you have to take care about the configure installation prefix. Because by default, a configure script uses the /usr/local prefix for installations.

Hi,

I do not know if the problem still resists, but did you had a look at:

http://davidbolton.info/articles/build_ ... mpler.html

I understand you use fedora, but this page gives some information about other things who has to be installed.
f.e. bison.

Kind regards,

Hi,

My experience is that the next packages have to be present:

sudo apt-get install g++ debhelper pkg-config automake1.1 automake1.4 automake1.9 libtool fakeroot libsndfile1-dev doxygen uuid-dev bison
sudo apt-get install intltool libgtkmm-2.4-dev xsltproc flex sqlite 3.3
sudo apt-get install ant qt4-dev-tools libjack-jackd2-dev

kind regards,

Hi,

Did you manage to create a f.e. .deb .rpm pakcage for libgig and installed this package. Only make -f Makefile.cvs, ./configure make and sudo make install does not isntall the libs.

Kind regards,
