Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: Problem Installing The Jabber Package
Since I coincidentally already had it checked out from CVS (even
though I never use it), I looked briefly at the
contrib/packages/jabber/ stuff (from the oacs-5-0 branch,
I think the CVS Head is the same):
The way the nsjabber C code is provided is rather weird, there're a
bunch of tar and tar.gz files checked into CVS, and the
nsjabber-patch-1.tar.gz tarballs seem to have a lot of
overlap in what they contain. That shouldn't be direct directly
related to your build problems, but it seems sufficiently odd and
disorganized that I'd probably ask the mainters of that jabber contrib
package about it.
I went ahead and tried to build it, but the build stopped even sooner than yours did, probably because my machine doesn't have something installed on it that yours does:
$ make gcc -I../include/xode -I../../include -I../include/jabber -I../include -I../../nsd -I../../include -D_REENTRANT=1 -DNDEBUG=1 -g -O2 -fPIC -Wall -Wno-unused -mcpu=i686 -DHAVE_CMMSG=1 -DUSE_FIONREAD=1 -DHAVE_COND_EINTR=1 -c -o jpacket.o jpacket.c In file included from jpacket.c:20: ../include/jabber/jabber.h:42:21: libxode.h: No such file or directory make: *** [jpacket.o] Error 1
Thanks for trying.
