Re: [Sawfish] Building .deb from sources: more libtool problems

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I don't know if this is related, but make sure you have bash and not dash as the default shell.

I remember having problems building sawfish/librep due to that.

1 dmg@y $ ls -l /bin/sh

I'm trying to build the latest sawfish from sources, and am getting into
libtool difficulty.

The reason I'm trying to build the latest is because I'm investigating
another issue: when using SDL2 to create a 640x480 window, sawfish
1.9.90 does not report window border sizes correctly and a window with a
canvas size of 638x478 results, while SDL2 thinks it's 640x480 and parts
of the canvas are not rendered. Using xfwm4 does not have any problems
of this kind.

dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b -us -uc
or alternatively the "make-sure-it's-bash" version:
SHELL=/bin/bash /bin/bash -c "dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b -us -uc"

results in:
make[1]: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/rep/libtool: Command not found

I just compiled and installed librep and rep from sources. I only have
this rep-related libtool installed:

Forcing a symlink to use that libtool just results in:
/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-linux-gnu/4.9/../../../../lib/librep.a: error adding
symbols: Bad value

It's a bit unclear how to proceed here. I'm not exactly an autotools expert.
