Thread: Error compiling Torcs

    Default Error compiling Torcs

    Torcs 1.3.1

    I know that there is a packaged Torcs already avialable. I'm compiling Torcs for two reasons, a) So I can better understand compiling packages, so I can compile packages on my own in the future. b) Change target location of where the game is being installed. My first try failed with this:

    checking for sin in -lm... no
    configure: error: Can't find libm. Please check config.log and if you can't solve the problem send the file to with the subject "torcs compilation problem"
    rm: cannot remove directory `conf23889.dir': Directory not empty
    I went on the Torcs channel on and the person there who was helping suggested that I try this:

    ./configure CFLAGS="-O2 -m64 -fPIC" CPPFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC" CXXFLAGS="-O2 -fPIC" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64" ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/lib64 --disable-xrandr --build=x86_64-suse-linux
    checking whether byte ordering is bigendian... unknown                                                                                                       
    configure: error: unknown endianness                                                                                                                         
    presetting ac_cv_c_bigendian=no (or yes) will help                                                                                                           
    rm: cannot remove directory `conf23109.dir': Directory not empty
    both failed for different reasons, the second one, the person helping me indicated to me that it was a autoconf bug @ My current version installed:

    comp1:/lib64 # rpm -qa autoconf
    Any suggestions you can offer me would be graciously appreciated thank you very much =)

    Do the compilation as root.

    What is in the directory conf23109.dir? See whether you can remove its content manually, and continue.

    Torcs is a defective software, often crashes.

    Both commands were running as root when they both failed... :{ ... Any other suggestions?

    You don't need to run either "./configure" or "make" as root. Only "make install" needs root permission.

    Your problem seems to be missing glibc.
    zypper install glibc-devel

    Thanks, I remember that for future reference, I scrapped it for the windows version, and that worked out fine. Thanks
