Thread: GMP install questions

  1. #1

    Default GMP install questions

    OK, apparently I was not as far as I thought I was.

    I do the whole;

    ./configure
    make
    make install

    Everything runs and then finishes with no errors, but nothing installs.

    I am trying to install gmp 4.2.4

    Hi
    What wrong with the version that comes with openSUSE 11 4.2.2? It only
    installs the libraries, in your case it would be /usr/local/lib. I'm
    guessing you ran it all as root user. You can build everything you need
    as your user, then use sudo to run make install.

    If you look at the INSTALL file, it does say to run make check
    openSUSE uses the following convention for configuring gmp;
    Code:
    ../configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib --infodir=/usr/share/info
    --build=i586-suse-linux --disable-mpfr --enable-cxx
    make
    make check
    sudo make install
    Note in my case --build is for the 32bit version, 64bit would be
    x86_64-suse-linux.

    I suggest you look at running make uninstall and then selecting your
    programs via YaST.

    I think you mean 2.4.4

    Why not just install it from the repos? I think the latest version in the repos is 2.4.5

    It's much faster and easier than trying to compile it from scratch.

    To install from the repos simply go to YaST->Install Software and search for gimp. Check it off, and click apply and you're done

    Also, you can simply type
    Code:
    zypper in gimp
    as root and gimp will be installed.

    In order to compile directly from source, you must have all the build dependencies, gcc and make installed, but I assume you've installed that because you said you received no errors

    Hope it helps

    Thank you for all the feedback guys. I really appreciate it.

    I understand there are much better/ quicker ways to do it, but I am still confused as to why the way I was doing it did not install it?

    Any advice or ways to check to see if it was really installed or why it didn't?
