cdrtools installation problem in c8000 HP-UX B.11.11

I try to install cdrecord for my HP C8000 to enable the DVD writer to write data cds(I've already install DVD+rw tools so no problem in writing dvds). During my installation of cdrecord, seems a smake or gmake is needed to install the software but when I tried to install samke , it keep giving me error :
./psmake/smake: No such file or directory
can not open 'incs/9000-785-hp-ux-gcc/rules.cnf'. Error exit code 2

Any idea about this? or do I have any another option to get my dvd-writer burning data cds?

Many thanks

There is more than one version of
cdrtools/cdrecord, and more than one place to
get a kit for it. What, exactly, are you
trying to install? (And you got it from
where?) How, exactly, are you trying to
install it?

Same story.

> [...] a smake or gmake is needed [...]

So, did you try GNU "make"? (That's what I
use.)


I normally work with the latest cdrtools
source kit, from its author:

ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/alpha/

but I normally use it on VMS. I don't
remember the last time I tried it on HP-UX,
but comments in the release notes mention
HP-UX, so I'd assume that it's getting some
testing there.

Hi Steven,

I tried gun make 3.81.

when I use
./configure
gave me this error
configure: error
c compiler cannot create excutable

How could i enable the c compiler?

I have install gcc4.3.1 and gcc64 4.3.1 on my machine.


anyone have any idea about this? thanks a lot

You tried to _use_ GNU "make"?
You tried to _build_ GNU "make"?

You may know what you're doing, but I don't.

Does it work? Can you use your GCC to
compile a C program?

Hi Steven I've tried a little c progrom it
gave this error

/usr/lib/dld.sl:Unresolved symbol:pthread_mutex_lock(code)from gcc Abort (coredump)

seems gcc is not working correctly.

how should I do?

I don't know what you _have_ done. "I have
install gcc4.3.1 [...]" is not a complete
description of what you did or what you did
it with.

A Web search for that error message might
find something helpful.
