    svn gaim


    Hi all currently trying to get the latest svn from gaim, came with these errors:
    liam@ubuntu:~$ cd gaim
    liam@ubuntu:~/gaim$ ./autogen.sh
    Generating configuration files for Gaim, please wait....

    Running libtoolize, please ignore non-fatal messages....
    You should add the contents of `/usr/share/aclocal/libtool.m4' to `aclocal.m4'.
    You should add the contents of '/usr/share/aclocal/intltool.m4' to 'aclocal.m4'.aclocal: configure.ac: 50: macro `AM_GLIB_GNU_GETTEXT' not found in library
    liam@ubuntu:~/gaim$
    What do i need to do to get past these errors?

    Many thanks!

    Do you have the gtk 2.0 developpement files installed?

    In order to compile gaim you would need those. The package is probably called "libgtk2.0-dev".

    So
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential libgtk2.0-dev
    Plus, make sure you have those installed:
    -autoconf
    -automake (a recent version)
    -gettext

    You can "apt-get" those as well.

    For more, you can take a look at this page:

    gmake?

    You need as well:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev
    So glib and gtk developpement files are needed.

    See the bottom of this page (section called "Subversion (aka SVN)":
    http://gaim.sourceforge.net/downloads.php

    OK. In fact "gmake" means "GNU make". So you can just do that:
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /usr/bin/make /usr/bin/gmake
    Then it should work.

    Hum... it does work flawlessly on my system though.

    Then
    Code:
    sudo rm /usr/bin/gmake
    Code:
    whereis make
    Should tell you were it is, make a symlink for it that points to the equivalent location, but "gmake" instead.

    Like that
    Code:
    mastah@hugues:~$ sudo rm /usr/bin/gmake
    mastah@hugues:~$ whereis make
    make: /usr/bin/make /usr/share/man/man1/make.1.gz
    mastah@hugues:~$ sudo ln -s /usr/bin/make /usr/bin/gmake
    mastah@hugues:~$ gmake --help
    Usage: gmake [options] [target] ...
