I've been using MMEX for several years., always with Linux. Never had any problems I couldn't resolve up to now.
But I thought I'd try Crostini (https://www.reddit.com/r/Crostini/wiki/ ... etup-guide) on my Chromebook, and tried to install MMEX from source (v1.3.3)
The issue I get is as follows:- all the standard installation works up to the bit where I try to run bootstrap.sh (to run bakefiles to build makefiles? never used this before)
If I just ignore this, then the stuff in the "po" directory doesn't compile when I type make.
Code: Select all
$ ./bootstrap.sh [1/16] generating gnu from ../../po/po.bkl [2/16] generating msvc from ../../po/po.bkl [bakefile_gen] waiting for remaining jobs to finish after error... [bakefile_gen] error: bakefile exited with error (-11) using automake from /usr/share/automake-1.15 file INSTALL exists, skipping file config.guess exists, skipping file config.sub exists, skipping file install-sh exists, skipping
Interestingly it works fine when installing on a Mint box or a Kubuntu box; goes through all 16 "generating ..." and the make works beautifully.
Bit of background - Crostini is a container running Debian Stretch (by default). It seems that something isn't installed or is at the wrong version.
I have, btw, tried installing 1.3.3 via snap, but that doesn't work due to some issue with Crostini. I gather that's being worked on.
Suggestions welcome. Or any more information anyone needs...
(FWIW - I CAN install 1.4 but (a) that's still under development and (b) my mmb database doesn't open under 1.4. But that's a different problem...)
