rasdaman: install script full of ugly

Reported by: hamish Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: major Milestone: OSGeoLive6.0RC1
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: 6.0, rasdaman



just looking through the 6.0 beta6 build logs. lots of stuff in the rasdaman install is partially broken:

FIXME: is 'apt-get -f' really needed here? what's broken?
FIXME: please put custom stuff in /usr/local/lib so we can know about deviations from the base install. Better: compile against 12.04's libraries

ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/lib/': File exists
ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/lib/': File exists
ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/lib/': File exists
ln: failed to create symbolic link `/usr/lib/': File exists

./ 282: ./ /etc/init.d/rpcbind: not found

The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 default-jre-headless : Depends: openjdk-6-jre-headless (>= 6b23~pre11-1ubuntu1~) but it is not going to be installed
 openjdk-6-jre : Depends: openjdk-6-jre-headless (>= 6b24-1.11.3-1ubuntu0.12.04.1) but it is not going to be installed

E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.

Removing wx-common ...   [needed by others?]

could it be cleaned up before we go to RC?

thanks, Hamish

Seems that cleaning up has removed hdf library and now rasdaman stops at configuration. Failed to install in beta7

comment:2 by hamish, 10 years ago

6.0 beta7 build log:

checking for strtoul... yes
configure: using hdf4 library...yes
checking for main in -ldf... no
configure: error: in `/tmp/build_rasdaman/rasdaman':
configure: error: --with-hdf4 was given but libdf.a was not found! Please install.
See `config.log' for more details
ERROR: configure failed.

building with static libs?

libhdf4-dev was missing, hopefully fixed with r8576.

This solution won't work, because when you install libhdf4-dev, libgdal-dev will be removed.


  • leave the symlinks, or
  • remove --with-hdf4 in the configure command (it's not so essential anyway), or
  • use the latest rasdaman from the git repo, where this bug should be fixed

ok, try r8579 where --with-hdf4 has been removed. Note there is also a libhdf4-alt-dev, maybe that helps. If you get really stuck with the hdf4 stuff you might try pinging Frankie on the DebianGIS list who did a lot of the packaging. It is much preferable to stick with released versions (i.e. known and tested codebases). The symlinks I commented out all weren't being created anyway (see the errors in the build log), since the target libs already existed there. I suspect some temporary LD_LIBRARY_PATH magic may have helped instead of symlinks.

From here y'all will have to sort the rest of it out, I'm off to a remote field station for a few days. :)

best, Hamish

I just tested building rasdaman with latest trunk in beta7 and WCPS demo fails again. Compilation completed without problems.
