SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Build problems

Post by gduffley » Mon Jul 25, 2016 6:48 pm

System specs:

Distributor ID: SUSE LINUX
Description: SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
Release: 11
Codename: n/a


When I try to compile neuron with this command:

Code: Select all

./configure --prefix=/../neuron/nrn --with-iv=/../neuron-bin/iv --with-nrnpython=/usr/bin/python
I get this error:

Code: Select all


I can't compile and/or link an interviews program.  If InterViews is not
installed in /usr or /usr/local or /usr/local/iv,
specify the proper location of the interviews tree using

	configure --with-iv=/where/you/put/iv

The interviews headers should be in subdirectories of
/where/you/put/iv/include, and the libraries should be in
/where/you/put/iv/lib or /where/you/put/iv/x86_64/lib
 (not in /where/you/put/iv/lib/ALPHA or
 /where/you/put/iv/lib/LINUX or some other subdirectory of lib).

However, I have iclass, idemo, and idraw in /../neuron-bin/iv/x86_64/bin

I ran into this same issue on a Suse13.2 machine, but I was able to circumvent the issue by using sudo permissions on all of the steps of the compilation. I don't understand why that made a difference in that scenario, but I don't have admin on the current machine.

Thanks,
Gordon

Looks like you're trying to put your NEURON and Interviews installations into the root of your hard drive. Don't think so? Try
cd /..
and then
pwd

Given that, what do you suppose
/../dirname
tells configure about where to look for the directory called
dirname
?

Start from scratch, but this time don't put a slash at the start of your prefix strings.

Hi Ted,

Thanks for the quick reply. I used /../ (should have been / . . . /) to abbreviate the absolute path to my install directory. I have full permissions in the directory I am trying to install to. Sorry for my poor formatting.

Thanks,
Gordon

No need to apologize.

Did the install path contain any space characters? Where and when did you get the gzipped tar file that contained the source code?
