Thread: installing FreeCAD on OpenSuse 11.3

  1. #1

    Default installing FreeCAD on OpenSuse 11.3

    Hi,

    i want to install FreeCAD on my Laptop (OpenSuse 11.3). There is no default Package in the distribution, therefore I downloaded the source-code. But I can't install the software.

    I tried it like this:
    Code:
    sudo ./autogen.sh
    revision.m4 found
    can't find libtoolize or glibtoolize
    But in the source-code-directory the file is there.
    Code:
    sudo ./configure
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    ...
    checking for inflate in -lz... no
    configure: error: 
      **** Cannot find the zlib library. ****
    But zlib is installed manually via YaST
    Code:
    sudo make
    make: *** Keine Targets angegeben und keine make-Steuerdatei gefunden.  Schluss.
    Sorry, this part is in german but it says that no target is given and the "make"-control-file wasn't found.

    I hope that anybody of you can help me because i have no idea what could be wrong.

    i have not read the directions given by the makers of FreeCAD, so i do
    not know what the install manual says, but i do know that you should not
    normally run either configure nor make as root...so sudo is
    inappropriate for ./configure, and i _guess_ for autogen.sh also..

    what do the directions say?

    if it actually says "sudo ./configure" then i have to assume whoever
    wrote it has very little real clue (or more likely you are following a
    step-by-step for Ubuntu or one of their spin-offs...and i'd closely
    inspect the the entire package for other signs that it may wreck your
    openSUSE system.

    FreeCAD can't be installed with zypper:
    Code:
    'FreeCAD' not found in package names. Trying capabilities.
    No provider of 'FreeCAD' found.
    and I also tried it without sudo. Same error warnings.

    hmmmm....it seems that FreeCAD is a Qt3 application (for KDE3) and i bet
    you are running KDE4 (a QT4 application) or Gnome (neither qt4 or qt3)..

    so, what you are now trying to do is kinda like putting diesel fuel in
    the tank of your Ferrari..

    i _guess_ (i really do not know) that to run FreeCAD on openSUSE 11.3
    you would need to first install, and switch to KDE3, see a *little* more
    on that here: http://tinyurl.com/3t6kdvc
    and here: http://tinyurl.com/3lpfpz7

    however, perhaps a newer (than FreeCAD) entry into the space might be
    suited for your needs, see: http://tinyurl.com/3bjorxu

    Very strange, When I had 11.3 I had installed it through zypper with no problems. Now who I have 11.4 , I try to check it in yast && zypper but there are not results.
