Hello

I am trying to install PovRay on Ubuntu 14.04.

I think I have followed the guideline given in this newsgroups. But it still
doesn't work.

I've checked that all dependencies are updated.
libboost-dev
zlib1g-dev
libpng12-dev
libjpeg8-dev
libtiff5-dev
libopenexr-dev

I followed the instructions given in github
% cd unix/
% ./prebuild.sh
% cd ../
% ./configure COMPILED_BY="your name <email@address>"
% make

but the 'make' doesn't work


sudo ./configure COMPILED_BY="FredDM<dae### [at] bluewinch>"

leads to this error with the boost thread library

configure: error: in `/home/fred/Programmation/PovRay/povray-3.7-stable':
configure: error: cannot link with the boost thread library

It is a known error, but the solution provided

sudo ./configure COMPILED_BY="FredDM<>" LIBS="-lboost_system -lboost_thread"

leads to a new error

Programs
--------
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether the C compiler works... no
configure: error: in `/home/fred/Programmation/PovRay/povray-3.7-stable':
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

I have checked gcc

fred@Flat-Ubu:~/Programmation/PovRay/povray-3.7-stable$ gcc --version
gcc (Ubuntu 4.8.4-2ubuntu1~14.04.1) 4.8.4

If anyone can give me a clue, I would be very glad.

Thanks in advance

Fred

i know nothing about linux but i do this compilation chore regularly, the last
time yesterday or the day before.  i use xubuntu which does not have some stuff
that is normal or expected, apparently.  here is a list i made the last time, as
i was tired of not having it down in one place, of the stuff listed as needed,
the versions i installed using synaptic, and some stuff not listed that was
needed;

libboost-dev            libboost1.55-dev
libboost-date-time-dev  libboost-date-time1.55-dev
libboost-thread-dev     libboost-thread1.55-dev
zlib1g-dev              zlib1g-dev
libpng12-dev            libpng12-dev
libjpeg8-dev            libjpeg8-dev
libtiff5-dev            libtiff5-dev
libopenexr-dev          libopenexr-dev

g++-4.8                 g++ version 4:4.8.2-1ubuntu6
autoconf                autoconf version 2.69-6
automake                (already had Automake 1.14)

I recommend using the latest master branch instead of the stable.

Thanks to clipka and to green for your quick answer.

I tried both solutions.

the added libraries didn't solve the problem.

But the use of the master branch did it.
Compilation went through without any problems.
Pov-Ray is working well.

Thanks a lot

I am sorry but I am new to this. I did compilations of small projects that I
created,but I never went through compilation of a real software before.
Can you explain me the difference between Master Branch and Stable Branch.
I had the wrong intuition to use the stable release.

Fred

%description
The Persistence of Vision Ray tracer creates three-dimensional,
photo-realistic images using a rendering technique called ray tracing.
It reads in a text file containing information describing the objects and
lighting in a scene and generates an image of that scene from the view
point of a camera also described in the text file. Ray tracing is not
a fast process by any means, (the generation of a complex image can
take several hours) but it produces very high quality images
with realistic reflections, shading, perspective, and other effects.
