Need help compiling emacs from source
I ran ./configure again to confirm and I don't see any errors. Everything flies by the screen pretty quickly but I didn't see anything concerning and the final page of the process all looks to be in order. All the questions : does Emacs use -**** all end in no. All the config.status: creating xxxx/makefile all appear to have completed successfully. The final line is creating src/Makefile.
To compile software, I've found it necessary to have kernel headers and other requirements installed.
I think that to do this in Ubuntu, you need to do:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
Gave that a shot but didn't help. Here is a bit more info on the error code:
make: Entering directory /home/tod/Compile/emacs-23.4/lib-src
make: *** No rule to make target '/usr/lib/crt1.0', needed by 'temacs'. Stop.
make: leaving directory
make: *** [src] Error 2
Maybe that helps more?
hoping not to make things worse, I did come across something that looked familiar:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgradeCode:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
Ran all those above but everything was already up to date, so no change.
Well, with a little more research I see a variety of the same error report online as well as some bug reports but haven't been able to figure out the fix. Maybe I will try compiling something different...
Any suggestions on other programs to install to practice compiling from source? Vi and nano are already installed.
I saw the patch yesterday, but I have no idea what to do with it or how to apply it. Any direction would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know if this was the right strategy or not, but I simply deleted all of the files that were created when I extracted the tarball, so I will need to start from scratch. (no big deal) I tried the same process with an older version of emacs and had the same results. I have no idea if the multiple failed "make and make installs" installed files elsewhere that I should be concerned about. Feeling like I am in a bit over my head...
