Re: R: [Linrad] Re: Linrad-03.00

I have been running xlinrad on 64 bit Linux since late 2006/early 2007. I currently have no issues and just ./configure and then 'make xlinrad'.

Back in late 2006/early 2007 I made a webpage showing how to do it given the problems then extant. I thought that Leif and the advances in the OS distros had made all of this unnecessary, but maybe not. At some point the crash problem disappeared, but I don't know exactly when, as I didn't document when this problem disappeared [sorry!]

For what they are worth [perhaps not much at this late date] my notes from those days of yore remain at:


I haven't played with this stuff since Dec 2007 or Jan 2008 so I am admittedly way out of date at this point.

Hi Bob,

I am running Ubuntu 8.10 x86_64.  If I run

./configure --prefix=/usr/local

make xlinrad

if fails looking at my libX11 files, even though I have both 32 and 64
bit versions.  The message is that we are skipping incompatible libraries.
It seems nobody on this list has an answer:-(

First of all, you add --prefix=/usr/local to the configure
command. Why is that? Have you tried without it?

The Makefile that the configure script generates has
a specific option -m32 to gcc to tell it that the code
should be built for the 32 bit memory model. I thought
that should be enough to tell the linker what libraries
to use. I think others have compiled sucessfully on 64
bit systems, but I am not quite sure.

Maybe the problem is the god old standard one: Some
package is missing and the error message is confusing;-)
