I'm not used to set up a build environment under a rpm distribution because I always work on a debian linux flavor. Can you please write down a recipe (similar to this one
) to allow me to try to build on Mandriva? I can setup a virtual machine that uses Mandriva Linux and give a try to that problem.
As I have already mentioned, the same error occurs even when I'm trying to build synfig with ./configure && make.
I'm using Mandriva cooker, and getting it working can be the most difficult thing for you. I did not try building in Mandriva 2011 and unsure if this issue reproducible there.
There are some troubles with both updating from Mandriva 2011 and clean installation. But updating from 2011 should be easier. Replace 2011 repos with cooker and run
urpmi --auto-update --auto
as root. Update can fail if some packages were replaced in repo until it finished (cooker packages are updated very often), so try running this command again. If there will be some package conflicts, try adding --allow-force and --force flags.
If you want to use rpm build environment and Mandriva package sources, do the following:
$ su - -c 'urpmi bm repsys mdvsys'
$ mdvsys checkout synfig
$ cd synfig
$ su - -c 'urpmi --buildrequires --no-suggests --auto SRPMS/synfig.spec'
This will install development tools, checkout package sources from SVN repo, install build dependencies and start building the package. Build log will be stored in SPECS/log.synfig.
