iv-17 installation problems

Post by rishabh »

Hi all,

I've downloaded the file iv-17.tar.gz from the yale site(for linux installation)

have administrator write for the machine, and it has ubuntu installed on it .
It has a gcc-4.1 package installed on it.
However it is giving the following error.

I did the following:

I downloaded the file into my home directory and tried configuring using the following steps.
1.tar -xvzf iv-17.tar.gz
..got iv-17 (unzipped file)
2.entered the directory(iv-17) and tried
"./configure" which gave me the following error

I guess when you install the gcc-4.1 package you need to also select that you want g++. However, I also guess that you are missing a ton of other programs needed to make/compile/link programs and that you need to install a full development environment.

pardon me sir,
but I relatively new to linux.

I tried g++ and installed it.
IViews got installed, i can see the binaries in /usr/loca/
but i am not sure if I have all the requisite packages and will it work properly later or not.

Could you tell me what should be a common name for searching for the ' full development environment', so that I can install everything under the sun required.The only way I know is to look for each package(which shows failed installation in the config.log file) and install it seperately which is quite cumbersome

Also I tried going ahead with neuron installation with
./configure --with-iv option
but it is giving the error

appending configuration tag "F77" to libtool
configure: Use the NRNMECH_DLL_STYLE for "special"
checking for cos in -lm... yes
checking for tgetent in -lncurses... no
checking for tgetent in -lcurses... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermcap... no
configure: error: cannot find one of ncurses, curses, or termcap

To compile you need not only the compiler, but also the corresponding libraries. I would try to install the following libraries (in bold the debian name package).

  • For gcc
    libc6 - GNU C Library: Shared libraries
    libc6-dev - GNU C Library: Development Libraries and Header Files
checking for tgetent in -lncurses... no
checking for tgetent in -lcurses... no
checking for tgetent in -ltermcap... no
configure: error: cannot find one of ncurses, curses, or termcap
According to your error, I would install the following
  • libncursesw5-dev - Developer's libraries for ncursesw
    ncurses-base - Descriptions of common terminal types
    ncurses-bin - Terminal-related programs and man pages
    ncurses-term - Additional terminal type definitions
Ubuntu is a Debian based distribution, so to install just type in the console as root:

#apt-get install <packagename>

In my case, these four packages are not enough, I installed more form this link, then it's OK.

http://packages.ubuntu.com/feisty/source/ncurses

tpuff which of these packages from the link you listed did you install? How did you establish which ones you needed? I had exactly the same problem you described in your first post. Have installed lots of packages listed in this post and others, but interviews installation still isn't working.

Thanks,
john

On an old 10.04LTS ubuntu I found that installing libkaya-ncurses-dev allowed the ncurses, curses, or termcap error message to go away after installing the other packages mentioned above.
