Compiling (from latest git source) on Manjaro...

Post by JamesPeters »

Since I'm using Manjaro and it's an Arch derivative, it has different package names from Debian/Ubuntu, and I'm unsure what dependencies to install before compiling DrumGizmo from the latest git source. It's failing in the ./autogen.sh step (with the error "autoreconf: error: automake failed with exit status: 1"), so I assume I'm missing something. Can anyone please provide a list of required dependency packages for Manjaro?

Also note: on the compiling/installing in Linux page there are a few spelling errors:

-the word "dependencies" is misspelled as "dependecies" (missing the "n")
-the word "argument" is misspelled as "argumnt" (missing the "e"),
-it says "Now fire up your favorite DAV and everything should be dandy." (not DAW). :)

Note: DrumGizmo failed to build from the AUR with the same error too. That's the first time I've seen anything fail to build from the AUR automatically in Manjaro.

(edit) I guess it might have something to do with this:

I have fixed the spelling errors on the website and just pushed a fix to the compilation error on the develop branch.
Thanks for reporting :-)

I tried compiling from the git again this morning (several hours after your post) and it gave me the same error.

I then tried building it in Xubuntu (from a live USB, after installing the prerequisites) and got past the ./autogen.sh stage, but during the make stage it had errors. I gave up. :)

Did you change to the develop branch before building?
The master branch, which is the one checkout out by default in git, does not yet contain the fix.

I didn't do that, because I just followed what it said on your page for "Get the latest source code through git". I don't know how to "change branches". I have never used the git command before.

It's ok. I was able to figure out how to do that. But I still had to use an Ubuntu variant to do the build since despite meeting all the known requirements (I checked the AUR's git for those, to know if I had them installed), it still wouldn't build in Manjaro. But that's what flash drives are for. :)
