Installing Ghostscript - Precompiled


After reading this thread.

http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=774117

I've installed ghostscript from here

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/PostScript/ghostscript-7.07b/

for 11.11 v1 however when running
swinstall -s /tmp/ghostscript-7.07b-hppa-11.11.depot

I get a message about dependencies, exactly the same ones as it's says is bundled in the install instructions.

------- From Install Instructions ------
Note: I 've included :
ghostscript-fonts-other-6.0 ghostscript-fonts-std-6.0 with this version of ghostscript.
also I have included :
jpeg-6b
libpng-1.2.4
zlib-1.1.4
-------

And it installs with errors and I can't find anything under the default location of /usr/local

Anyone see what I'm doing wrong?

Shalom Andrew,

Check the sw install log for errors.

swverify \*

See if anything you have recently installed is corrupt.

Re: Installing Ghostscript - Precompiled


Cheers Steven,

swverify shows an error of verify failed on one of the dependencies of gcc which is a dependency of the above install.

It seems I'm to install gettext and libiconv at the same time due to a circular dependency between the two.

But I've got files libiconv-1.10-hppa-11.11.depot
gettext-0.14.5-hppa-11.11.depot

and whichever I install first using

swinstall -s /tmp/file

gives the verify error from above.

Is there a syntax for swinstall to install these simulatainously, or do I have swcopy first, in which case the syntax for that command would also be useful.

Did a search, found the syntax for the swcopy command I couldn't get my head around last night.

Ok did

swcopy -s /tmp/file1 @/tmp/depot
swcopy -s /tmp/file2 @/tmp/depot

So I could then run

swinstall -s /tmp/depot and install them both products at the same time. However this still leaves whichever product gets installed first with swverify errors as in reality it installs them sequentially. I'm guessing that even if I merge the depot files the software will still be installed sequentially too so I'm not sure what else to do.

Sorted, the precompiled software doesn't seem to be bundled with the zlib, jpeg and png libraries it claims to be.
