  Building 3.7.0.0: Where's ./configure? (Message 1 to 5 of 5)

Hi there!

I'm new to Slackware and for me building things from source is some kind 
of revival - I used to build almost any kind of software since mid 90's.

So I'm not /that/ new to reading tons of docs, READMEs and whatever 
comes in my way.

But I need some help with building pov 3.7.0.0.

unix/install.txt tells me to run the usual configure and make commands. 
But where is that configure script for povray?

TIA

Gregor

PS: unix/install.txt:

...
Compiling and installing POV-Ray from sources is achieved by running the
usual 'configure' and 'make' commands.  For a system-wide installation:

   ./configure COMPILED_BY="name <email@address or website>" [options]
   make check
   sudo make install

The COMPILED_BY argument to 'configure' is mandatory and must be filled
with your name and/or organization so that the generated binary can be
differentiated from official POV-Ray builds.

First run prebuild.sh from the unix folder and then all will be clear ;-)

Well, no ;-)

There still isn't any ./configure script.

Do you get any errors?  Does it look like it's doing anything?  There
are hundreds of lines output from ./prebuild.sh .
It is difficult to diagnose your problem based on

" Well, no ;-) "

I see:
$ wget https://github.com/POV-Ray/povray/archive/v3.7.0.0.tar.gz
$ tar -xvzf v3.7.0.0.tar.gz
$ cd povray-3.7.0.0/unix/
$ ./prebuild.sh
$ cd ..
$ ls
aclocal.m4   configure     ini             povray.1       scripts
AUTHORS      configure.ac  INSTALL         povray.conf    source
bootstrap    COPYING       kde_install.sh  povray.ini.in  unix
ChangeLog    distribution  libraries       README         VERSION
changes.txt  doc           LICENSE         README.md      vfe
config.h.in  icons         Makefile.am     revision.txt   windows
config.log   include       NEWS            scenes
$ ./configure COMPILED_BY="Dick Balaska <dic### [at] buckosoftcom>"

...

Jr would know for sure, but if you are using a recent Slackware you may
want to use v3.7.0.7

(Ubuntu 18 has build issues with 3.7.0.0 but works fine with 3.7.0.7)

You obviously didn't get the "cancel msg"-Message - the posting you're 
referring to has been deleted just a few seconds after I sent it (after 
having realized that I switched to a wrong virtual screen prior to sending).

So, no more configure problem.

A new one instead: It seems I'll have to find and install boost.

Regards,

Gregor
