install/make problems, what am I missing?

Postby dhdurgee on Mon Jul 27, 2009 1:37 pm

I have recently installed mint 7 x64 on my system. As I prefer Sea monkey to thunder bird and fire fox I downloaded the installer for the latest version from the sea monkey project, as the package listed in the package installer is old. Following the instructions in the readme file I created a seamonkey directory in my home folder and unpacked the archive to it. I then attempted the install and get the following:

dhdurgee@ddd-pc2 ~/seamonkey/seamonkey-installer $ ./seamonkey-installer
./seamonkey-installer-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
dhdurgee@ddd-pc2 ~/seamonkey/seamonkey-installer $

So it appears I am missing some shared libraries that the installer expects, where do I get them?

As I am also trying to get AHCI working on my machine I downloaded the ahcitool from sourceforge and attempted to make it per the instructions with the following results:

dhdurgee@ddd-pc2 ~/Projects/ahcitool-0.1 $ make
gcc -O2 -g -Wall -W -DUSE_LIBPCI -c -o sataahcitool.o sataahcitool.c
sataahcitool.c:62:22: error: pci/pci.h: No such file or directory

sataahcitool.c:1271: warning: implicit declaration of function ÔÇÿpci_cleanupÔÇÖ
make: *** [sataahcitool.o] Error 1

So it looks like either my environment is missing some settings or once again I am missing some packages. Once again I could use some guidance in getting things set up properly to be able to build from source code for my system. This is only the first package I was trying out, I also planned later to build hercules from source for the x64 environment. But given this experience I am going to hold off for a bit on that until I can get this simple program to build.

Thanks in advance for your assistance in getting things working properly.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

In the terminal or with the package manager (synaptic) mint menu>system>Package Manager
In terminal, check
    apt search libstdc++
    v libstdc++-dev -
    i libstdc++5 - The GNU Standard C++ Library v3

And if you can't get a version of the library that matches the requirements of the package you want to install, either from Mint/Ubuntu or in a higher version of the distribution (the next version) which often update system files & libraries..
you would be out of luck

Since you are doing a custom installation from source, you generally have to work out the issues yourself, unless someone here has done the exact same install using the exact same version, then you would have a match..

--I don't find it on any Linux site ??

You should have at a minimum..
    apt search build
    p apt-build - frontend to apt to build, optimize and ins
    p arch-buildpackage - tools for maintaining Debian packages usin
    p boost-build - cross-platform build system for C++ projec
    i A build-essential - Informational list of build-essential pack

You may also need the kernel sources, which for the current kernel 2.6.28.13-generic should already be installed, and when mint has a new kernel packaged up, it will be generated and appear in /usr/src
    ls /usr/src
    linux-headers-2.6.28-11
    linux-headers-2.6.28-11-generic rpm
    linux-headers-2.6.28-13
    linux-headers-2.6.28-13-generic

I used synaptic to add the missing standard C++ library and that enabled me to run the installer to place the package in /usr/local/seamonkey, which the installer indicated was the default location. I am able to run seamonkey now as root but only by referring to /usr/local/seamonkey/seamonkey directly, if I simply type seamonkey at the terminal prompt I get a message to install the package. I also cannot run this as a non-root user, except by sudo /usr/loca/seamonkey/seamonkey, so I definitely missed something somewhere. Has anyone done this and thus can tell me what I missed doing?

Perhaps I should install the older version and then install the new one on top of it? The installer says NOT to do this, but its dialog offers to erase the directory and recreate it so perhaps this would work.
