Problem compiling kdebase package

Problem compiling kdebase package

Post by Ghislain Gadboi » Wed, 24 Feb 1999 04:00:00



Hi,

    I downloaded the source tar.gz version of the following KDE
packages:  kdeadmin, kdebase, kdegames, kdegraphics, kdelibs,
kdesupport, kdetoys and kdeutils, all of version 1.1.  I started to
compile them (configure; make; make install for each of them).  All of
them compiled and installed fine except for kdebase.

    I keep getting the following when I make the package.

< Long long long snip...>
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/kde/kdebase-1.1/po'
Making all in cs
make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/local/kde/kdebase-1.1/po/cs'
msgfmt -o kbgndwm.gmo kbgndwm.po
/bin/sh: msgfmt: command not found
make[3]: *** [kbgndwm.gmo] Error 127
make[3]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/kde/kdebase-1.1/po/cs'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/kde/kdebase-1.1/po'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/kde/kdebase-1.1'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

    It appears that I don't have msgfmt on my system.

    Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    Should I install a package on my system that contains msgfmt?

    Is there a parameter that I could use to correct the problem?

    Is there another command that is equivalent to msgfmt that I could
use instead?

    My OS is Slackware Linux 3.4 and I have Qt 1.42 installed.

    If you need more info on my system that could help solving my
problem, just send me an e-mail and I'll provide it to you.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Make sure you have gnu-gettext.

 
 
 

1. Problems compiling kdebase-3.0

I'm running Debian 3.0 `Sid' with kernel 2.4.18 on a Athlon Thunderbird 1200.
I want to install KDE 3 from source, but I get stuck with compiling kdebase.

When I do a make all for kdebase-3.0, I receive the following errors:

In file included from favicons.cpp:29:
/usr/include/kde/kicontheme.h:160: syntax error before `;'
In file included from /usr/include/kde/kio/job.h:25,
                 from favicons.cpp:33:
/usr/include/kde/kio/jobclasses.h:248: syntax error before `;'

What could I be doing wrong?
