#4722 closed Bug (duplicate)

Building from trunk throws error on po Makefile (Debian)

Reported by: Opperpanter Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Daemon Version: 2.42+
Severity: Normal Keywords:



I tried to get some feedback with this on the forum, but maybe it's better to report it here. I also tried update/comment on the wiki page on building, but I don't think I've got permission for that.

I am trying to build the trunk on debian squeeze.

I installed a couple of packages (curl, libevent, ...), but am getting an error I can't explain when running (or configure):

[code] ... config.status: creating gtk/icons/Makefile config.status: creating web/Makefile config.status: creating web/images/Makefile config.status: creating web/style/Makefile config.status: creating web/style/jqueryui/Makefile config.status: creating web/style/jqueryui/images/Makefile config.status: creating web/style/transmission/Makefile config.status: creating web/style/transmission/images/Makefile config.status: creating web/style/transmission/images/buttons/Makefile config.status: creating web/javascript/Makefile config.status: creating web/javascript/jquery/Makefile config.status: error: cannot find input file: `po/' code

What could be wrong?

Someone suggested to create and empty po/ but that still throws an error

[code] config.status: error: po/ was not created by intltoolize code

I could (try to) build from source tarball, but building from trunk is much easier regarding keeping up to date.

Thanks for looking into this. Sorry to reopen, but what is the official solution? Just creating the makefile by hand and ignoring the.error? In that case we should update the Wiki. Let me know if I can help. Cheers.

To answer the question, the "official" solution is to install the i18n tools that are required to generate the po/ directory's makefiles & related files.

Thanks, i'll try to install those and compiling again.

Maybe one day the configure/make/autgen script can check for the i18n tools being installed.
