Installing ghostscript 8.62 with all its dependencies.

Hi,

I try to install ghostscript on HP-UX 11.31.
from http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/PostScript/ghostscript-8.62.0/

I started with its first depency package expat.
I get the following error.
I was able to run ./configure without any error. but when i run make i get following error.
#make
/bin/sh ./libtool --silent --mode=link cc -I./lib -I. -g -DHAVE_EXPAT_C
ONFIG_H -o xmlwf/xmlwf xmlwf/xmlwf.o xmlwf/xmlfile.o xmlwf/codepage.o xmlwf/rea

(Bundled) cc: warning 922: "-g" is unsupported in the bundled compiler, ignored.
ld: Unknown input file type: "./.libs/libexpat.so"
Fatal error.
*** Error exit code 1

libexpat.so shows:
#file libexpat.so
libexpat.so: ELF-32 executable object file - IA64

Kindly help me for this issue.

> (Bundled) cc: [...]

If you're doing anything which requires a
C compiler, and if you don't have (or wish to
buy) the HP compiler product, then your first
step should probably be installing GCC. On
IA64, the bundled C compiler is insufficient
for many purposes. (On PA-RISC, it's
insufficient for _most_ purposes.)

Re: Installing ghostscript 8.62 with all its dependencies.

Hi,

I am installing ghostscript just to convert postscript to epson printer format.

however, i installed gcc.

prod# /usr/local/bin/gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: ia64-hp-hpux11.31
Configured with: ../gcc/configure
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.2.3

but i did not put the gcc in PATH.
hence cc was used during ./configure.

but when i put gcc in PATH.
I get following error during ./configure

prod# ./configure

The bundled C compiler doesn't support -b. You created an executable rather than a shlib. You could of course just use ld -b to link.

Re: Installing ghostscript 8.62 with all its dependencies.

Hi,

I was able to run ./configure successfully with gcc. what i did was mv all lib needed to hpux32 folder /usr/local/hpux32.
But i found there a file hpux32 object file.
so i renamed this file and created a folder hpux32 and put all the libraries here.

Then i run make.
#make
/bin/sh ./libtool --silent --mode=link gcc -I./lib -I. -g -O2 -Wall -Wmi
ssing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes -fexceptions -DHAVE_EXPAT_CONFIG_H -o xml

Re: Installing ghostscript 8.62 with all its dependencies.

Hi,

My question was regarding reling with ld -b.
However i test removing ./.libs/libexpat.so.

This time:
dev2# make
/bin/sh ./libtool --silent --mode=link gcc -I./lib -I. -g -O2 -Wall -Wmi
ssing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes -fexceptions -DHAVE_EXPAT_CONFIG_H -o xml
wf/xmlwf xmlwf/xmlwf.o xmlwf/xmlfile.o xmlwf/codepage.o xmlwf/readfilemap.o libe
xpat.la
gcc: ./.libs/libexpat.so: No such file or directory
*** Error exit code 1


Then I saw there are other versions of this file in the same directory i tried them as well but same.

dev2# ls
libexpat.a libexpat.lai libexpat.so.6.2
libexpat.la libexpat.so.6 libexpat.so.org
dev2# cp libexpat.so.6 libexpat.so


dev2# make
/bin/sh ./libtool --silent --mode=link gcc -I./lib -I. -g -O2 -Wall -Wmi
ssing-prototypes -Wstrict-prototypes -fexceptions -DHAVE_EXPAT_CONFIG_H -o xml

xpat.la

Do you suggest me to re-extract it form the source? Kindly suggest me.

Hi,

Thanks you all.

I re-extracted expat and then ./configure and make went fine.

Now i will try to do the same for all dependencies for ghostscript and let you all know.

Thanks for your efforts.

Re: Installing ghostscript 8.62 with all its dependencies.

> Make: Must be a separator on rules line 29. Stop.

I know nothing, but if you're building modern
freeware, you may also need a "make" program
like the one everyone else uses, namely GNU
"make".

http://www.gnu.org/software/make/

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Gnu/make-3.81/

The "make" programs supplied with many
commercial UNIX operating systems are old and
feeble. Many freeware developers expect a
"make" which has more features.

After installing it, either get it ahead of
the HP-UX "make" on your path, or make a
link like:

/usr/local/gmake -> /usr/local/make

(or wherever you install it)

and then use "gmake" instead of "make" in
your command(s).

Re: Installing ghostscript 8.62 with all its dependencies.

Wait. Let me guess. You installed GNU
"make", but you did not put it in PATH.

Is ./src/instcopy executable? What does "file ./src/instcopy" show?

>[HP ARIES32]: /usr/local/bin/gs saved to /ghost/ghostscript-8.62/ghostscript-8.62/core.gs.

This indicates you have a PA executable. That means you need a PA shlib libexpat.sl, which you must build on PA.

Re: Installing ghostscript 8.62 with all its dependencies.

Hi Dennis,

Do you think the error is also due to this pathch set inavaiablity?

I see the error message you kindly showing is a warning not error and i get so many warnings like that. I did not post all warnings i get but only last few lines from gmake install (mention in above post).

Kindly help me in this regard.

Re: Installing ghostscript 8.62 with all its dependencies.

>Do you think the error is also due to this patch set unavailability?

Actually you never listed the errors so that warning may be meaningless. I.e. you could have added the stab-me-in-the-back option +vshlibunsats.

The latest patch is always a good idea. But if you have that symbol, that's not the problem:
nm -px /usr/lib/hpux32/libunwind.so | grep _Unwind_DeleteException

>I did not post all warnings I get but only last few lines from gmake install

I need to see the errors.

Your link output said:
ld: (Warning) Unsatisfied symbol "_Unwind_DeleteException" in file .../libstdc++.so
9 warnings.
3 errors.

There should be 9 warnings and 3 errors.
If you see: ld: Unsatisfied symbol ...
This is an error if it doesn't say "(Warning)".
