    Default How to install Groovenet which is a vehicular network simulator

    Hi everybody,

    I have to install GrooveNet which is a vehicular network simulaor. I have downloaded it

    from GrooveNet Vehicular Network Simulator :: University of Pennsylvania & Carnegie Mellon there is a set-uo

    guide but I have a problem.

    I have to open the project within KDevelop or go to the src directory and type "make"

    When I try to build the project the answer is this one:

    make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib/qt3/mkspecs/default/qmake.conf', needed by `Makefile'. Stop.

    what can I do??

    First, welcome here. Please state your openSUSE version, desktop + desktop version used, 32/64 bit etc.


    If you take a look in the folder mentioned, you will probably see it's not there or just empty. AFAIK you need a full KDE3/qt3 (see the 'qt3'?) development environment. Since qt3 is already mentioned I don't think kdevelop in de current version (i.e. using qt4) will help.


    This is from the top of the doc:
    This guide describes the simple steps to install and run a GrooveNet simulation.
    GrooveNet requires Linux kernel 2.6.* and Qt 3.x graphics library. SUSE 10 is the
    preferred Linux distribution


    Reading this I'd say you need the qt3-devel package to be installed. It will probably pull in a lot of other packages, accept that.


    Please let us know how you got on. Good luck

    I operation system is SUSE 10.1, 32 bit (I have installed all packet about Qt3 when I set up the SUSE 10.1). As far as I know, there is Qt 3.x and linux kernel 2.6* in SUSE 10.1. I have all requirement but when I build program within KDevelop KDE C,C++ or type make in src directory The answer always is make: *** No rule to make target `/usr/lib/qt3/mkspecs/default/qmake.conf', needed by `Makefile'. Stop. How we can find a solution ?

    One problem is, that 10.1 is no longer supported. Another is, that I don't have a 10.1 I can access anymore. So I can just ask questions that come to mind reading your output.


    Is 'qmake' installed?
    Did you try installing kdevelop and opening the project?
    Sure the qt3*devel packages are installed?

    I have tried to run groovenet with OpenSuse 11.2 but open Suse 11.2 use qt4 then I installed SUSE 10. I am sure I have installed all packet about qt3. When I set up the SUSE 10 I chose all packet. I don't know how we can install qmake ı just type qmake and make in terminal. I also have KDevelop.

    In IT Knowledge: GrooveNet There is a set up guide I implement all step but I can't buid the project

    Taking a look at where the 'mkspecs' folders reside on 11.2, I see they're not in /usr/lib/qt4/ but in /usr/share/qt4. Could this be the same for your 10.1? I.e. you would have to pass the location of the 'mkspecs' folder to the compiler? The Makefile should have that info.

    perhaps you should consider installing SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop
    10 (aka: SLED 10 and sometimes SUSE 10) which *is* supported and is (i
    guess) the operating system referred to in the simulator's
    documentation as "SUSE 10 is the preferred Linux distribution"

    on the other hand, since this simulator requires Qt3 and i _think_
    that is well supported in SLED 11 you might be best off installing
    that, as it will be supported by Novell/Attachmate (maybe) longer than
    10..

    you can get SLED 10 or 11 as a free download from linux.novell.com to
    try out...the free download includes some days (90?) of support but
    patches, updates and longer term support is via a commercial (read:
    money) arrangement..

    while you are very welcome to hang out here and see if someone (like
    the talented and experienced Professor Knurpht) can help you get it
    going in an UNsupported system, i'd advise you to also ask for advice
    and thoughts over in forums.novell.com

    Hi Yasin_37,

    Did you find the solution to your problem? I have the exact same issue. I was not able to install groovenet. I have both qt3 and qt4 installed on my opensuse 11. In the Makefile, I changed the paths to /usr/lib/qt3. Now, when I compile it, I get this error: fatal error qapplication.h no such file or directory. This is a qt related error. If I run qmake this error will be resolved but will be followed with a lot of other erros about finding other header files. Should I remove qt4? Is there a set of instructions to do that? please help

    Thanks you
    Sarah
